    If I am staying at the Dolphin, and paying for my parking, will I need to pay for parking at the Magic Kingdom? If I walk from the Dolphin to the Yacht Club can I use the bus service to get to the Magic Kingdom?

    Hi Ralph! Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney!

    I am SO excited to hEAR about your upcoming stay at the Walt Disney World Dolphin and visit to Walt Disney World Resort! While I love staying in one of the over 25 incredible Disney Resorts Collection hotels, my family and I often stay at either the Walt Disney World Swan or Dolphin because we simply can't find a better location than the EPCOT Resort area.  I love being able to take a breezy and relaxing Friendship Boat ride to Disney's Hollywood Studios in the morning and leisurly stroll home at night after an exciting day at EPCOT.  Plus, you'll be just steps away from the entertainment of Disney's BoardWalk AND fantastic signature dining destinations like Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney's Yacht Club Resort. 

    According to the Walt Disney World Dolphin hotel website, you will find that Standard Theme Park parking at all four Theme Parks is included in the price of your stay. Registered Guests are able to upgrade from Standard Theme Park parking to Preferred Theme Park parking by just paying the difference in price. 

    You will find, however, that complimentary transportation is provided if you do not want to drive your own vehicle.  Buses from the Swan, Dolphin and Swan Reserve hotels run approximately every 20-25 minutes to Magic Kingdom, Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Disney Springs. Guests arriving at Magic Kingdom will be dropped off at the Transportation and Ticket Center (the same destination where you will park your car) and will be able to arrive at the Park in style by way of the Monorail or Ferryboat. 

    Since Disney provides its Guests with complimentary transportation all around the more than 40 square miles of the Walt Disney World Resort you are welcome to walk to one of the nearby Resorts and hop on the bus from there if you wish.

    I hope you and your party have an absolutely magical stay at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
