    Hello. We are staying at the Dolphin Hotel. We have dining reservations for dinner at 8pm at the California Grill on 9/2 (Labor Day). Will we be allowed to park our car at the Contemporary while we dine?

    Hi Lynn! You are having dinner at one of the best Disney Dining locations! California Grill, atop Disney’s Contemporary Resort, has one of the finest menus and best views in all the Walt Disney World Resort! You made a great choice!

    You are welcome to drive from the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel to Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Guests enjoy complimentary parking at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel if they are visiting the hotel for dining, entertainment, shopping, or recreation at the resort hotel. You do not need to be staying at the hotel to enjoy this perk!

    When you arrive at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, you may be asked to show proof of your dining reservation so that you can park. Simply show your reservation email confirmation or your dining reservation on your My Disney Experience app.

    Lynn, here is a PRO TIP for you! While visiting California Grill, be sure to visit the observation deck to take in the view of the surrounding area! The view of Magic Kingdom Park is stunning from the observation deck!

    Dreams do come true!
