    When staying at a Disney resort hotel, I know that I can drive my car to the TTC or theme park parking lots & park free when I visit the WDW parks. However, can my car stay parked overnight if I choose to take the shuttle back to my hotel?

    Hello there, Avanti!

    Oh boy! As a fellow Marylander, welcome to planDisney. I see that your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is coming up very soon. You'll be there just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort. Make sure to check out all four of the theme park icons as they transform into Beacons of Magic during the celebration. 

    I love that the Walt Disney World Resort has a wide array of complimentary transportation options available. I just spoke with a Cast Member, and I know this isn't the news you wanted to hear, but you won't be able to leave your car parked overnight at any of the four theme parks. Depending on which Resort you'll be staying at, you may be able to take advantage of complementary buses, monorails, water taxis, and the Disney Skyliner. The Minnie Van service is another personal ride service you can book on your smartphone to request a ride, and prices vary based on the distance traveled within Walt Disney World Resort. 

    You can find the nearest transportation options on the My Disney Experience app by pressing the location icon (the second icon on the bottom left), press the drop-down arrow in the top portion of the screen, and selecting transportation. If you'd rather look at a list of transportation options, you can press "show list" to select your preferred mode of transportation to see where it is on the map. 

    If you have specific questions about transportation at your Resort, please let me know. I'd love to share other tips and tricks with you. 

    May the magic be with you!
