    Hi! I see that standard theme park parking is included for guests staying on Disney property. Does this extend to Shades of Green? I’m planning our days with toddlers and trying to decide if driving a rental to certain parks would helpful vs transportation

    Hiya Maegan,

    Welcome to planDisney! Traveling with little Mouseketeers is a special superpower. Every time I visit with my daughter, I feel like it looks like I’m moving into my Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. Kudos to you mom, for getting started on your planning!

    I contacted Shades of Green because I wasn’t 100% sure what their policy was. Unfortunately, Guests of Shades of Green do not receive complimentary parking at Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks. If you don’t want to pay for parking, you should plan to take the Shades of Green complimentary bus transportation to the Theme Park you have a Disney Park Pass reservation for the day.

    Meagan, I know that waiting for complimentary transportation to and from the Theme Parks can sometimes be exhausting, especially when you have a little in desperate need of a nap. One thing I rely on to get back to my room (or the Theme Parks) more efficiently Is the Minnie Van service. Although it is not complimentary, it is my favorite way to travel with a little one. The Minnie Van service is driven by Cast Members, and the best part is it has the ability to have two car seats installed at once. The Cast Members install them while you get your strollers and bags in the car. Once your littles are in their seats, you can sit back and relax while they watch Disney cartoons on the screens (or listen to Disney music)! It really is a stress-free way to travel as a mom with littles, in my opinion.

    I hope this was helpful, Maegan. Please come back and see us if you need anything else!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
