    We will be visiting Hollywood Studio theme park on December 27 and we want to be there as soon as they open. Does the parking open an hour before the theme park opens. Also is it true you pay one time for parking and you can re enter again? Thank you

    Hi Michelle!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Your Walt Disney World Vacation is just around the corner!  Are you too excited to sleep??  I've checked the calendar for 27th December - Disney's Hollywood Studios opens at 6.00am that day, and the parking lots typically open an hour prior to park opening.  You are correct that the daily standard parking fee is valid for the whole day, whether you leave and return to the same park, or visit another park. You will only pay one fee for that day, just remember to keep your parking receipt to show proof that you've paid for the day.  Please bear in mind that this week is a particularly busy time at Walt Disney World Resort, and if you leave the park to return later, and the park meanwhile reaches its capacity of Guests, you may not be admitted back in again.  It's also worth noting that standard parking at the theme parks is complimentary for Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel.  At the water parks - Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach - and at Disney Springs, parking is free of charge for all Guests.  

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation, and the Disney Parks Blog has all the latest official news and updates on any events that may be happening during your stay.
