    I am staying at animal kingdom lodge. can I park at other hotels with my car? For example gran floridian or Disney beach club.

    Jambo! Welcome back to planDisney, Mariana.  Are you ready for the most magical vacation at Walt Disney World Resort? I am happy to help you with your question today.

    You picked a wonderful resort to call "home" during your vacation. Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is so beautiful, and who doesn't love waking up in the morning and viewing the Masai giraffes eating leaves off the trees? There is so much to experience at this resort, which is why I recommend taking a photo of the resort's Recreation Activities Guide! It is usually located in the lobby and details all the daily activities at Animal Kingdom Lodge. The Mara is an excellent quick-service location where you can find the delicious Zebra Domes (if you have a sweet tooth, this is the snack for you!).

    Let's talk about parking at other Disney Resort Hotels! Typically, you can park at Disney Resorts if you have a resort reservation or dining reservation. You will be asked to present confirmation for either choice if you drive your car to the resort. If visiting Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney's Beach Club Resort is a top priority, you can take your resort bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. From there, hop on the resort bus to Grand Floridan or Beach Club. If you are at EPCOT, you can walk from the International Gateway entrance to Beach Club, and you can take the Monorail from the front entrance to the Transportation and Ticket Center and switch monorail lines to the resort loop to the Grand Floridian. The monorail is a fun experience, and you can most certainly make an afternoon of it by visiting Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and Disney's Contemporary Resort this way! 

    Mariana, I hope all of this information was helpful! Thank you again for visiting planDisney. Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World!

    Magic Awaits!
