    We are thinking of staying at the World Center Marriott and renting a car. If we are not staying at a Disney Hotel are we still able to eat at the Deluxe Resorts? Can we park at the Resort or do we have to park at the ticket ctr and take monorail to hotel?

    Hi Julie,

    You do not have to stay on Disney property to dine at a deluxe resort.  I have frequently stayed off property with relatives and go over to eat at the resorts. 

    There is parking available for you at the resort.  When you arrive at the resort gate, tell the guard which restaurant you have reservations for and they will direct you to the parking area for guests dining there.  Most have valet and self-parking options.

    To make your dining reservations, call 407-WDW-DINE.  Reservations can be made 180 prior to your visit.  Make sure you make your reservations early as many locations fill up early. 

    Wishing you magical memories!
