    My wife and I are heading to Disney World for our daughters 2nd birthday. We have the annual pass but wanted to know if it covers preferred parking or do I have to pay the full amount or a difference?

    Hi Kevin and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so glad your stopped by with your question. I’m excited to hear that you will be celebrating your daughter’s birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    As a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder you get to enjoy tons of benefits, one of them is free standard parking at any of the four Disney theme parks. When it comes to preferred parking, you definitely would be able to upgrade to it for a smaller fee since you are an annual passholder. Right now, the full cost for preferred parking is $45 per vehicle. You would have to check with a Cast Member as you’re driving in to see exactly what the difference is because those rates are subject to change.

    Kevin, as you start planning some fun activities for your toddler during your visit, may I suggest checking out Disney’s Preschool Parents’ Guide. There are lots of great tips in there to keep her happy and excited about her birthday trip. 

    When it comes to celebrating your daughter on her special day, be sure to pick up an “It’s My Birthday” celebratory button as you’re heading into your park of choice for the day. You can pick these up at Guest Relations at any of the four theme parks. Mickey and his friends always love to give extra attention to their littlest guests on their birthdays!

    I hope you and your family have a magical visit! Please come back to see us if you need any more help planning your stay!
