    We will be visiting a park before check-in on our first day. Once at the hotel (Grand Floridian) we will be paying to park. How do we use free theme park parking with hotel parking, if we haven’t checked in yet?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Charles! It sounds like you're planning a "grand" vacation!

    Standard theme park parking is included for registered Guests of Disney Resort hotels, including on the day of your check-in. Pull up your resort reservation on your My Disney Experience app when you arrive at the parking lot, or you can ask the parking attendant to scan your MagicBand if you have one. If you decide that you want upgraded parking which gets you a little closer to the gates, you can also pay the difference in cost between your included standard parking and preferred parking.

    I'm so excited for you to stay at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Charles! This is my favorite resort for many reasons, including the grandeur of the Victorian-era ambiance. If you get a chance, enjoy a cocktail at the Beauty and the Beast-inspired Enchanted Rose Lounge (kids are welcome). The French Rose pairs nicely with the Truffle Fries. The Grand Floridian Spa is also an excellent way to treat yourself and recharge those batteries (appointments can be booked online)!

    Have a magical time, and feel free to write us back anytime!
