    We are visiting Animal Kingdom Park before we check in to our resort. Can we still park for free at Animal Kingdom Park?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Jayme. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to see you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in just a matter of days! 

     You're going to love experiencing the Disney Resorts Collection. When you stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you stay IN the magic, even after you've left the theme parks!

     You ask an excellent question. If you plan to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park before checking in to your Disney Resort hotel, you can still take advantage of the complimentary parking for hotel Guests at the theme parks. When you arrive at the gate, simply have your MagicBand or Disney MagicMobile Pass ready to be scanned. Your hotel reservation is linked to both, so the Cast Member will be able to see that you're checking in to your Disney Resort hotel that day. Isn't that great?

     You're sure to have a wild time at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. While you're exploring this unique theme park, don't miss your chance to see A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King. This Broadway-style show is not to be missed!

     I hope this was helpful, Jayme. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
