    Can you tell me about the parking?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question! I am happy to help you think about parking while at Walt Disney World.

    My family almost always has a car when we visit Walt Disney World. We love the freedom that having a car gives us to move about Walt Disney World whenever we want to!

    Walt Disney World has great parking options. One recent change, if you are a guest staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, is that there is now complimentary overnight parking at these hotels! Another benefit of staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel is that your standard parking at the theme parks will also be complimentary. You can pay an additional fee to upgrade this to preferred parking, and you can also pay a fee if you prefer to valet park at your resort hotel if you are staying at a deluxe or deluxe villa resort. For guests not staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, the fees for parking at a theme park are listed on the link that I provided.

    We find that the parking at the resort hotels is very convenient. There are often different parking locations at a resort hotel so that you can choose the one closest to your room to lessen the walk from your car to your room.

    At the theme parks, at EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom, the parking lots are adjacent to the front of the theme park, so you can go directly to the front of the theme park from your car. At Magic Kingdom, you will need to park at the Transportation and Ticket Center and from there either take the ferryboat or the monorail to the front of the theme park. 

    Sometimes you may find that you do not want to drive and would rather take complimentary Disney transportation. My family does this as well sometimes! Especially when we are heading to Magic Kingdom, we may opt for Disney transportation. For Magic Kingdom Park, the Disney transportation will allow you to skip the step of the Transportation and Ticket Center by dropping you off at the front of Magic Kingdom Park.

    I hope that this information has answered your questions about parking at Walt Disney World, Jennifer. Please feel free to come back by planDisney if you have any further questions!
