    We are staying at art of animation and have a chef Mickey reservation. Can we drive to The Contemporary and park there for dinner?

    Hi Danielle! Welcome to planDisney.

    You are only a few short days away from your immersive vacation at Walt Disney World Resort in time to catch The World's Most Magical Celebration before it comes to a close at the end of March 2023. Treat yourself to some of the commemorative 50th Anniversary Celebration Merchandise. I adore the retro vibe of the Vault Collection.

    With your advance dining reservation at Chef Mickey's to meet the head cheese himself and all of his best buddies, you will be allowed to park at Disney's Contemporary Resort. I suggest having your reservation pulled up on your phone to show the security guard at the gate. This strategy has definitely helped speed up the check-in process for me in the past. On average, you can park for about three hours to enjoy your meal and explore the resort.

    If the timing works, head out to the observation deck of the fourth-floor concourse to view Disney Enchantment on the evening of your dining reservation. This nighttime spectacular will be coming to a close in early April. At Outer Rim, you can relax for a nightcap and view Bay Lake.

    Keeping it Magical,
