    Yes, I have another question!! Must you pay for parking at the TTC in order to visit the Contemporary for breakfast at Chef Mickey's?

    Hey Brianna-

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. There is no better way to start your day than having breakfast with The Boss and his friends. Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort has a wonderful buffet with selections for every palate.

    You do not need to pay for parking at the Transportation and Ticket Center if you are dining at Chef Mickey’s because you may park at Disney's Contemporary Resort for free during your meal. In general, if you have an advanced dining reservation at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will not need to pay for parking at the hotel. There is a three (3) hour parking limit for Guests not staying on property and dining at Resort hotels.

    Follow the signs to Disney’s Contemporary Resort and tell the gate guard you have a dining reservation. You should be on a list but sometimes information doesn’t get transferred so it would be wise to have your dining reservation number handy.

    Of course, if you decide to enjoy Magic Kingdom Park or Epcot via the Epcot Monorail Service, you will need to pay the parking fee at the Transportation and Ticket Center.

    Disney Dad Tip: Take some time to walk around the Grand Canyon Course at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. There is a beautiful 90-foot mural created by Disney Legend, Mary Blair. It is stunning.

    Brianna, enjoy making many delicious and Magical Memories.
