    I am staying at an off site resort. What are my options for getting to the resort? If I rent a car, can I park at Disney world, Epcot, Hollywood studios, and animal kingdom easily? Do I need to purchase separate parking tickets beforehand? How much?

    Hey there, Tabatha, and welcome to planDisney! Your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is only hours away at this point. Are you excited yet? 

    Tabatha, some off-site resorts near Walt Disney World Resort offer transportation options directly to the Theme Parks. So I would first check with your resort to see if there is transportation provided. If you’re comfortable with using rideshare services, they are also an increasingly popular option for getting to and from the Theme Parks. But if you’d like to have more control over your arrival and departure times, a rental car is a great option for navigating the Walt Disney World “bubble”.

    Parking at each of the Theme Parks is easy to navigate, and in my experience, there has always been parking availability no matter what time I arrive. As you approach the Theme Park Parking Lot, you will check in with a Cast Member and pay for your parking selection on the day of your visit. You can choose from daily standard ($25) or daily preferred parking ($45-$50). There is no option to purchase parking in advance. Your parking pass is good for the entire day across each of the Theme Parks. So if you are planning to park hop, makes sure to hang onto your receipt to show the parking Cast Members, and you will not have to re-pay for parking that day.

    I hope this helps, Tabatha! Have a great time on your special Disney Vacation!

    Until Next Time,
