    I am staying offsite for my next Disney Trip. Can I pay for parking with a Disney giftcard? Also, if I want to visit Art of Animation resort, can I? Would I call for a day pass?

    Welcome, Angela, to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Disney gift cards can be used throughout Walt Disney World, including the water parks, Disney Springs and for parking at the theme parks. So have that gift card handy as you enter the parking lot. Also, be sure to keep your parking receipt, as you will need to present this receipt at the entrance of each parking lot for the day. Once you pay for parking once, you'll be able to park at any of the Disney theme parks for no additional charge. 

    To visit Disney's Art of Animation Resort, you will need to take Disney's complimentary transportation. Parking at the resorts is only permitted for guests who will be residing at this resort during their stay. But feel free to take a bus from any theme park or Disney Springs to be able to take a stroll through this awesomely colorful resort. 

    Have an amazing time at Walt Disney World, Angela. Please stop by and see us again if you have more questions about parking, park hopping, and resort hopping.

    Happy planning,
