    Traveling to Disney this summer, wondering if I have to pay for the parking at Disney springs?

    Hiya Rae,

    Welcome back to planDisney! Oh boy! How great that you are planning an upcoming summer trip to Walt Disney World Resort. Summer is the perfect time to enjoy the Florida warmth and sunshine, plus the theme parks typically have even longer operating hours. That means even more time to ride your favorite attractions and enjoy nighttime entertainment like Harmonious at EPCOT - a definite must-do in my book! 

    All of our Disney World trips have to include time at Disney Springs. Guests can enjoy plenty of shopping locations, including a massive World of Disney store, as well entertainment options like Splittsville Luxury Lanes or the amazing Drawn to Life Presented by Cirque du Soleil® , and let's not forget about the amazing restaurants, sweet shops, bars and lounges. You can easily spend an entire day just wandering Disney Springs and still not see everything.  Another great thing about Disney Springs is there is no admission ticket required for entry into the general areas and visiting does not require a theme park reservation. You can come and go as often, and whenever, you would like (within operating hours of course). Plus, you will be happy to hEAR that you can save your money for an extra Loungefly bag, as there is no cost for self-parking at Disney Springs. There is a valet option for an additional cost but you can choose to park in any of the open self-park locations for free. 

    Remember most table locations at Disney Springs are quite popular, so you will still want to make advanced dining reservations to obtain a spot at your favorite restaurant. Happy shopping! If I can help with any additional planning questions, please stop back and see me
