    If your staying at a good neighbor hotel do you get free parking at the parks??

    Hi there, Victor, and welcome to planDisney! It's always a pleasure to assist Mickey's Floridian neighbors as they plan their magical vacations. 

    Although we typically opt to enjoy the immersive theming and incredible exclusive benefits available to Guests of Disney Resort hotels, my husband and I will occasionally choose to prioritize delicious dining and Enchanting Extras over our accommodations during a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. When this is the case, we often utilize loyalty points and enjoy a stay at a Good Neighbor Hotel. We have found these familiar hotels to be a great compromise because while they aren't in the middle of the magic, they sure are close to it!

    While specific benefits vary at each Good Neighbor Hotel, unfortunately, complimentary theme park parking is not currently available at any of them. If you are hoping to self-navigate and park during your magical vacation, then you will need to pay the parking fee each day. While this is likely not what you were hoping to hear, Victor, I do have some good news for you. Although parking is not included in the price of your hotel, if you are an Annual Passholder standard parking is always complimentary! Additionally, if you are not a Passholder and opt to pay to park, that benefit follows you from park to park each day. You can pay once and park-hop until you drop! Finally, I'm happy to report that each Good Neighbor Hotel provides transportation to Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. Please keep in mind that a fee might apply to the service at certain hotels, so I would check with your hotel before you make definitive plans. 

    I hope this was helpful, Victor, and that magical memories await you. If you have any additional Walt Disney World Resort questions, feel free to stop back by. I'm always happy to help!
