    If we are staying on disneyworld property and part of the family is staying off property would they be able to drive and park at our resort for the day and ride the bus to the parks with us

    Hiya Rebecca,

    Welcome back to planDisney! We are so excited that you continue to include us in your planning journey. Staying on-site at a Walt Disney World Resort Collection Hotel is one of my most favorite parts of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. All of the incredible details in the room and amenities are beyond impressive. Also, having extra time in the parks as a resort guest is a fantastic perk.

    At this time, only Guests with an existing Walt Disney World Resort reservation can park at your resort hotel. So your family would not be able to park at your resort hotel for the day and ride the Disney bus to the Theme Parks with you. One option that may work for you is having your family pick you up from your hotel and driving together to the Theme Parks or just meeting them at the Theme Parks. Admittedly, I actually prefer having a backup vehicle at the Theme Parks. My family and I love Disney dining and tend to load up our itinerary with as many different table service locations as possible. Having an extra vehicle is very helpful because we can spend as much time in the Theme Parks as possible and still make it over to our dining reservations with plenty of time to spare.

    I’m sorry I couldn’t give you the answer you were looking for, Rebecca. If there is anything else we can do to help, please come back and see us.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
