    We are staying in a home December 23 through Dec 31st about 10 minutes from Disney. We will have a rental car, however, what is the best way to get to the parks.? Should we drive,? Is there parking? Is there a place for just drop off and pick up?

    Greetings, Donna and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    How excited you must be about your upcoming vacation during the Holidays at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Disney Parking options are available for your convenience throughout Walt Disney World Resort. You can select between standard or preferred parking for each day of your intended visit with complimentary transportation to the Theme Park entrance from your standard parked vehicle. The best part is, that the fee paid for a particular day is valid all day, that same day, at all 4 Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks – so kindly retain your Parking Pass if you plan on visiting more than one Theme Park that day. I have also seen off-property hotel shuttles; it's best to check with your particular hotel for this service if you wish.

    Please consider our Park Hopper Option which will include same-day admission to all 4 Theme Parks, if Theme Park hopping is more your style. As well, now would be a perfect time to download the free My Disney Experience mobile app to manage your plans before and during your visit to optimize your touring during this most festive time.

    We hope this information is helpful, Donna, we wish you a most magical Disney visit and hope you can Be Our Guest at a Disney Resort hotel in the near future, where you can bask in unique benefits and magical experiences during your stay!

    Best Disney Holiday Wishes!
