    What do I show as proof I'm staying at a Disney resort to get complimentary parking at Animal Kingdom

    Hiya, Karen. Thanks for coming to planDisney with your Walt Disney World Vacation planning question!

    There are so many perks to staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, one of which you already touched on, complimentary standard theme park parking! But don’t forget the other benefits, such as Early Entry, Extended Evening Theme Park Hours for Deluxe Resort Guests, and complimentary transportation options. No Disney World vacation is complete without a ride on the monorail!

    To access the magic and take advantage of the complimentary theme parking as a Disney Resort Guest, you will scan your MagicBand/MagicBand+, show your reservation in the My Disney Experience app on your phone, activate Disney MagicMobile so your information is stored in your phone’s digital wallet, or swipe your Annual Pass or Key to the World card.  

    To take advantage of Disney MagicMobile, download and open the My Disney Experience app, click on the menu icon in the bottom-right corner, scroll to the Disney Account section, and select “Set up MagicMobile Entry.” Click the plus icon (+) and follow the prompts to add your MagicMobile passes to your Apple or Google Wallet. For Apple users, Express Mode is enabled when you add the pass to your wallet, allowing you to hold your device to the touchpoint without opening your wallet or unlocking your device. Android users must unlock their devices before using their MagicMobile pass, but it’s just as straightforward. 

    I hope this helps, Karen. Please let me know if you have any other questions or would like some of my favorite dining suggestions! As the self-proclaimed foodie of the planDisney class of 2024, I would be happy to share some of my favorite spots with you!
