    We’re staying at Copper Creek Villa with our DVC points next week. I know we get free parking. But my in-laws are staying with us. An they are driving there vehicle. Will they have to pay for parking since they are staying with us?

    Welcome Home, Crystal!

    You are staying at one of my favorite Resorts on property! Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is our second Disney "home," and is genuinely one of the best! My husband and I love that you feel like you are on a sophisticated rustic vacation while literally being a 10-minute boat ride away from Magic Kingdom Park. My kiddos love the nightly s' mores by the lake!

    In terms of parking at the Resort, if the drivers of the cars are on the reservation, parking is complimentary for Disney Vacation Club Members and their guests. So tell the in-laws they are free to park away! A delightful Cast Member at Member Services reminded me that this is for overnight self-parking. If you choose to use valet services, the valet fee applies. Members can also dine, shop, and enjoy daily activities at other Disney Resort hotels without a parking fee.

    During your stay, take advantage of the fantastic workshops at Reunion Station. Members can try their hand at animation or enjoy a flight in a delicious tasting series. I think the Cake Decorating Workshop would be a super fun activity for the entire family - in-laws and all!

    Crystal, if you have any other questions, please drive on back. I wish you and your family a vacation that is practically perfect in every way!
