    If you are staying at a resort hotel and are using online check in, how can you prove you are staying at the hotel to receive free parking at a park?

    Hiya Michelle,

    Welcome to planDisney! We are so excited to be a part of your planning journey for your upcoming trip!

    First off, great question, Michelle! My vacation starts the second my feet hit the iconic carpet at Orlando International Airport. I don’t like to waste a magical moment, so I often head straight from the rental car center to a Theme Park. The great news, Michelle, is even if you use Online Check, your resort benefits are active beginning the day you check-in. When you reach the entrance of whichever theme park you plan to visit, present them with your active MagicBand, and they will scan it to verify you are a resort Guest. Just make sure that your resort hotel reservation is linked to your My Disney Experience account and will also be linked to your MagicBand. If you do not have a MagicBand, you can also use MagicMobile passes or swing by the front desk of your resort hotel to pick up a physical ticket card to show the Cast Members at the parking entrance. If you decide to use MagicMobile, I recommend also having a copy of your confirmation email for your resort hotel with you in case Ralph decides to wreck the internet again.

    I hope this was helpful, Michelle. Before I let you go, are you an art fan? What about a fan of good food? You are in luck! EPCOT’s International Festival of the Arts will be in full swing during your visit, so be sure to check it out. I’m always amazed by the stunning creativity, and the food is always satisfying. Please come back and see us if you need anything else.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
