    We are staying off property and so driving to the parks each day. Can you tell me what time the parking lots are opening?

    Hi Kelly!

    Thanks for bringing your question about parking to us here at planDisney! You are getting that much closer to experiencing all the wonderful magic that the Walt Disney World Resort has to offer!  You're headed down to the Most Magical Place on Earth during one of my favorite times, Autumn!  The leaves are changing, and the pumpkins and fall colors are all around you at Magic Kingdom!  Don't forget the fall inspired sweets and treats throughout the parks, such as the Pumpkin Spice Waffle Sundae, the Not So Poison Apple Cupcake, and more!

    All four Walt Disney World theme parks offer guests parking options, varying in price and location.  Most of the parking lots open ninety minutes prior to park opening, with the exception of Magic Kingdom.  The Transportation and Ticket Center serves as the parking lot for access to Magic Kingdom, and it opens two hours prior to park opening.  As park hours are subject to change, be sure to check the park hours on the Walt Disney World website or your My Disney Experience App for up to date park hours.  You can then plan on when to arrive at the parks to score a prime spot.  Keep in mind that day guests visiting the theme parks are subject to parking fee of $25 per day for car or motorcycle, $30 for oversized vehicle.  Preferred parking is available at all four theme parks at a cost of $45-50 per day for car or motorcycle. 

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
