    We are travelling to Walt Disney World and have made reservations for character dining at both Cape May Cafe and 1900 Park Fare. Is there parking available for these restaurants and is it free?

    Hello Rachel and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    It sure sounds like you've already planned for some delicious Disney dining during your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort and you will I'm sure enjoy dining with beloved Disney characters within the elegant surroundings of 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and the pretty coastal themed Cape May Cafe at Disney's Beach Club Resort.
    There are many benefits of staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and I'm happy to share that Guests staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel do receive complimentary self Parking at all 4 Disney theme Parks and Resorts. 
    For Guest convenience each Disney Resort hotel benefits from it's own parking lot and in my personal experience all Guests who have confirmed Advanced Dining Reservations at restaurants in Disney Resorts do at present receive complimentary self parking in the Resort parking lot. 
    Upon arriving at the Resort hotels security gate, all Guests should be prepared to provide their MagicBand or a valid form of ID plus an Advanced Dining Reservation confirmation number which generally speaking should allow for up to a maximum of approximately 3 hours parking whilst they enjoy their dining experience. 
    Have a great Disney day.
