    We are thinking of renting a car just for our arrival afternoon, and turning it in that evening to the car care center at WDW. Will we be charged for parking at our Disney Resort? We only want the car for a few hours to do some outlet shopping.

    Hi Laryssa!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Thank you for sending in such a great question, as there are many variations on parking fees.  If you are visiting any of the Disney Resort hotels for a dining reservation, or entertainment, there is no parking charge and you can typically leave your car there for around three hours, so you can park at your Disney Resort hotel during the afternoon of your arrival and you will not be charged for parking there.  Using the Car Care Center at Walt Disney World (located near Magic Kingdom Park) is so convenient because after you have returned your car you can arrange a shuttle to take you back to your Resort hotel, or the Transportation and Ticket Center.  As soon as you know your exact plans I would recommend that you call (407) 824-3470 (ext. 1) to arrange this shuttle service.

    If you decide to keep your rental car for longer, these are the current overnight charges for parking at a Disney Resort hotel (charges are always subject to change): for all 2019 arrivals and any reservations made before June 18, 2019 for arrivals in 2020, these charges per vehicle, per night are $13 for Disney Value Resorts; $19 for Disney Moderate Resorts, and $24 for Disney Deluxe and Deluxe Villa Resorts.  Full parking charge details can be seen here.  Parking is free for all Guests at Disney Springs and the two water parks - Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach.  At the four theme parks there is also no charge for Disney Resort hotel Guests.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
