    If I stay at Disney partner hotel and have tickets with early entry can I drive to a Disney Resort hotel where other family members are staying, park, they will have no car, and use same transportation into the park they do?

    Welcome to planDisney, Pam, and thank you for bringing us this great question. It sounds like you have a fabulous family visit coming up at Walt Disney World Resort, so let's look at some ways you can arrive in style at the Theme Parks!

    Many Walt Disney World Good Neighbor Hotels offer Early Theme Park Entry, but some do not. Be sure to read the perks you'll get at your hotel, and look for what type of transportation your hotel might offer to get to the parks. I've stayed at a few Good Neighbor Hotels, and they typically provide a shuttle service that runs throughout the day. This is often complimentary, but some hotels charge a fee. So your hotel shuttle might be a good transportation option for you, Pam.

    Since you will have your car, you can also drive to the theme parks. Theme park parking typically isn't included with the Good Neighbor Hotel benefits, but you can contact your hotel for details. The advantage of having your vehicle is you won't have to wait for a shuttle back to your hotel.

    As for parking at a Disney Resort Hotel, those spots are reserved for guests registered at that hotel or guests with dining reservations, so you won't be able to park your car there for the day. If you want to start your day with your family and enter the theme park together, I suggest using a rideshare service to their hotel. You could always catch your hotel's shuttle at the end of the day.

    Pam, I hope I've given you some viable transportation options for your upcoming visit. I'm sure you and your family will have a magical time! Please stop by planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
