    Staying at Y.C. but planning to visit GF spa and hoping to walk around to shop and get dinner at quick service. Will we get longer than the typical 3 hours parking? If we choose valet, is there a time limit? Is valet usually available? Thank

    Hi Melanie, welcome back to planDisney!

    I’m so glad to see you are using the resources here at planDisney to help you create your perfect Walt Disney World Resort vacation! 

    Standard self-parking is complimentary to day Guests who are visiting a Disney Resort hotel to enjoy dining, shopping, entertainment, and recreation. If you plan on booking an experience at The Grand Floridian Spa or making a dining reservation for one of the Table Service restaurants at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, show your reservation to the Cast Member at the parking booth. Dining can sometimes take longer than anticipated, so if you are there longer than three hours, it shouldn’t be a problem. For Guests who are planning on sightseeing at a Disney Resort hotel, it is possible that depending on the availability of parking spots at a Resort, you may not be able to park at a Resort hotel if you are not an overnight guest or do not have a confirmed dining reservation at the Resort. This is to ensure that there is available parking for overnight Guests of the Resort. 

    Valet Parking is an option at Disney Deluxe and Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts, as well as Disney’s Coronado Springs. Valet Parking is currently offered for a fee of $33 per night. I asked a Cast Member about the operating hours of Valet Service and they suggested that you ask the Parking Host when you arrive at the Resort about utilizing Valet Parking. 

    If you’re concerned about leaving your car at the Resort for an extended period, you have the option of parking at the Transportation and Ticket Center. You can board the Resort Monorail and disembark at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. As a Guest of a Disney Resort hotel, standard parking is included. 

    I hope this was helpful, Melanie! If you have any future planning questions, I’ll be here at planDisney! Your next visit to Walt Disney World Resort will be here before you know it!
