    I have an upcoming dining reservation at Trattoria al Forno. am I able to park at Disney's Boardwalk and for how long?

    Hi John,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for asking us a question!

    I’m a little ashamed to admit that I hadn’t tried Trattoria Al Forno at Disney’s Boardwalk until very recently… and now I’m hooked! That lasagna truly is the stuff of which dreams are made, especially when combined with a selection from their picture-perfect wine list. 

    I typically rent a car during my travels to Walt Disney World Resort, so I understand your parking concerns. When you arrive at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn (you’ll need to park in the Resort hotel’s lot), just show the Cast Member at the gate your dining reservation number and ask them how long you’ll be able to remain parked in the lot. During busier times of year, the maximum time is about 3 or 4 hours, but they might let you stay for much longer, if possible that day. Of course, if you need to stay for longer, you can always opt for Valet Parking (for a fee.) Based on my experience, you’ll be allowed to keep your car parked all day, if you use that option.

    I hope my answer helps you plan smooth travels and transportation options during your upcoming holiday. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions.

    Have a Magical Day,
