    We are visiting in late March and will be staying off-property. If we do a mobile order at a resort, how long can we stay parked there? If we wanted to grab an early breakfast at Boardwalk, could we walk to HS and leave our car at Boardwalk for the day?

    Welcome to planDisney, Elizabeth!

    I see you’ll be arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few weeks, and I’m so excited for you! I just love springtime at the Walt Disney World Resort, and March’s mild weather and longer daylight hours make it a fantastic time for a visit. 

    Breakfast on Disney’s BoardWalk sounds like a wonderful idea to me. This is one of my favorite spots to sample some tasty treats and take in the beautiful theming and gorgeous Florida skies. I’m imagining a bench looking out onto Crescent Lake and an extra-large cup of coffee…bliss!

    As part of the Walt Disney World Resort’s phased reopening, parking at a resort where you are not a registered Guest is only allowed in certain circumstances. When you arrive at the resort hotel, you will be asked to show your Table Service dining reservation (using the My Disney Experience mobile app). In some cases, a Mobile Order confirmation may allow access, but this is at the discretion of the Security Cast Member on duty, and that decision is based on capacity and other health and safety considerations. Parking is extremely limited at the BoardWalk area resorts, so even if allowed in, valet may be your only option. In either case, Guests are welcome to park for the time they are visiting a resort hotel, but not beyond. Parking at a resort hotel and then taking Disney transportation or walking to a theme park is not permitted, and you could find that your vehicle is towed, which would not be magical.

    If you’d like to have breakfast on Disney’s BoardWalk before your visit to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you could have whoever is driving drop you and then park at the theme park. They could then walk over to meet you on the BoardWalk. This is a lot of walking and logistics at the start of your Disney day, though. Another option would be to park at the resort where your mobile order has been made (if permitted), eat breakfast, and then drive to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for your theme park day. Again, you’d need to factor time in for all the parking and traveling, though. 

    If you’re hoping to get to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at opening, I’d recommend skipping breakfast on the BoardWalk and having something inside the theme park. Ronto Roasters in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land have great breakfasts, and you can never go wrong with The Trolley Car Café Starbucks location. 

    I hope this helps as you plan the logistics for your upcoming visit, Elizabeth! We’re here to help if you have any further questions as you count down the days.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
