    We are travelling dec 3-16 staying at Contemporary. We are renting a car for 1 day & to drive around & 'visit' some of the resorts to see the Christmas decorations. Do we need to pay for parking at each resort or is it free?

    Hi, Jaskaran!

    I love resort hopping. I always find a new "favorite" that I absolutely must plan to stay at for my next magical vacation. During the holidays, the resorts are even more spectacular with their decorations. My two favorites are the Grand Floridian and the Wilderness Lodge. Simply amazing!

    You are welcome to park in resort paring lots up to 3 hours in the guest parking. Be aware that during super busy times, you many be denied entry simply because the parking is full and only open to resort guests. The guard at the security gate will let you know where you can park, or if the lot is full.

    Just a thought, but being at the Contemporary, you will have easy access to the Polynesian Village Resort and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa via the resort monorail. You can get to the Wilderness Lodge via the boat dock on Bay Lake. To visit the Yacht, Beach, and Boardwalk Resorts, you can just exit at the International Gateway in Epoct (a great mid-day break!) You really can visit quite a few resorts without the hassle or expense of renting a car. Just something to think about!

    Enjoy all the magic of Christmas in Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
