    I am visiting WDW in March with my two grandchildren and am staying at Port Orleans . The girl's parents are staying elsewhere. If they pick them up to go to a park because they are staying on property with me is free parking available to them?

    Why hello there Marlene, I'd like to wish you a very warm welcome back to planDisney!

    From the looks of it, you've been bringing your grandchildren to Walt Disney World Resort for over a decade now and they've likely grown up surrounded by all of the magical Disney memories you share together! It looks like you're in for a fun stay together with the girls away from their parents at Disney's Port Orleans Resort

    I reached out to a member of the Walt Disney World Resort Guest Services team about your query and they pointed directly to the official Parking Policy wherein it states that "Standard theme park parking is included for registered Guests of Disney Resort hotels and select Annual Passholders." I also took this opportunity to pass by the Front Desk of one of the Disney Resort Hotels and the Cast Members also recommended ensuring that your grandchildren have one of their keys or MagicBands ready to scan to confirm their hotel registration and eligibility as they enter the parking lots at each of the Theme Parks. Bear in mind that in the event that they are charged for parking as a registered Disney Resort Hotel guest, they should keep the receipt to present to the Front Desk team. (In my personal experience this happened once before and they were able to reverse the charge!)

    I hope that this was helpful, Marlene and I wish you another wonderful Disney adventure with the grandchildren this coming year. Here's hoping that you can all enjoy the sights and smells of the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival during your stay, and we look forward to more of your questions here at planDisney again real soon!

    Here's to all of the greatest grandparents out there at the Most Magical Place on Earth!
