    We are visiting Disney from 10/3-10/6 and we bought park hopper passes for every day. Do we have to pay for parking at each park if we leave one park and visit another in the same day?

    Hey there, Katie! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. 

    I absolutely love park hopping, Katie! It's my favorite way to spend a Disney Day. In fact, I was just at Walt Disney World earlier today and spent the morning enjoying some of my most favorite attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios and then we hopped over to Epcot to enjoy the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival for lunch and dinner. If you follow the planDisney Instagram account, you can see some of the fun things I did today while park hopping on the stories! 

    I think you'll be happy to know, Katie, that you only pay one time each day and then can park all day no matter what park you visit. When you arrive at the parking attendant booths, you'll pull up to the Cast Member working and pay for parking. Currently, parking is $25.00 per day for standard parking and $45-$50 for preferred parking. Be sure to get a receipt before you pull away because that's what you'll need to show when you want to park at the next Walt Disney World Theme Park you'll be visiting that day. Keep in mind that if you are staying at one of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels or are a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder, you do receive complimentary standard theme park parking. 

    I also drive to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks when I visit, Katie. Something I like to do and highly recommend is packing a little cooler full of water to keep in the car. It can be a long walk back to your car and it feels even longer after a full day exploring the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. It's really nice to have a cold hydrating beverage waiting on you when you get to your car. 

    I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help! Have a great day and happy planning!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
