    Now that the Waldorf Orlando is an official Disney Hotel, do guest staying at the hotel get free theme park parking?

    Hi Michael!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with this great question!

    The Waldorf Astoria Orlando is one of the best hotels you can stay at when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort! While it is not classified as a Disney Resort, it is an Official Walt Disney World Hotel and is centrally located on Disney property. The amenities here are world-class and it does include some of the perks of staying at a Disney Resort. The biggest advantage is access to Early Theme Park Entry, which allows you a 30-minute head start from Guests staying offsite. You can typically jump on some attractions with minimal wait times or get some great photos with fewer crowds to get in your way.

    Unfortunately, Guests staying at this hotel do not receive free parking when visiting the theme parks. You will be required to pay the standard rates based on the type of vehicle you are driving. However, there is a complimentary shuttle service from the hotel that will take you to any of the four theme parks and Disney Springs. I suggest checking with the front desk upon arrival to view the shuttle schedule for your stay.

    Michael, you are in for a treat when you arrive at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando. Between the two Waldorf Astoria pools, the lazy river, the golf club, and the spa, there is something for Guests of all ages to enjoy! There is a number of onsite dining locations as well, so if you head back early from the parks, you don't have far to go for a delicious dinner.

    I hope you have a magical visit, Michael! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
