    We're thinking of driving to Animal Kingdom Lodge and Grand Floridian just to marvel at the hotels and consider staying there our next visit. Will there be a problem going there if we're not staying there? I seem to remember a guard post.

    Hi Wendy,

    Thanks for visiting us to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My family loves "Resort hopping" and we usually visit a few Resort hotels as a way to relax and unwind. Parking at the hotels is available for their Guests and those with valid dining reservations, and sometimes have limited availability.

    If you are visiting Magic Kingdom Park, take a mid-afternoon break and hop on the Resort Monorail. You could also park at any of the Theme Parks or even Disney Springs, and then you can take the complimentary Resort Transportation.

    One last tip: while visiting Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, why not enjoy a delicious Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room. See you real soon!
