    We are staying at the All-Star movies resort. We are only staying one night and going to MK the day we checkout. We want to make sure we get to the park right when it opens, how long will it take us to drive there and will we have to pay for parking?

    Hi Cassandra,

    You won't have to pay for parking on the day you check out.  Just be sure to keep the guest parking permit you are issued when you check in on your dashboard, and you'll be waived through the toll booth.  As for what time to arrive, the lots generally open about an hour before the parks open, so I'd plan on leaving All-Star Movies about thirty minutes before that to allow time to drive and then take either the monorail or ferry boat from Ticket and Transportation Center to the turnstiles at Magic Kingdom.

    Have a magical visit!
