Parking Cost at Walt Disney World

Last updated: March 15, 2018

Guests with a new resort reservation booked on or after March 21, 2018 will pay a nightly fee to park their cars at all Disney World Resorts.? In the past, Disney Resort hotels were some of the few local resorts that did not charge guests for overnight parking.

Depending on what level of resort you are staying at, deluxe, moderate or value, will determine your parking cost per night.? Guest room accounts will be charged the nightly cost and the credit card on file will be charged at check out.

Guests who are parking during the day at resorts for meal reservations and actives, along with Disney Vacation Club guests will not incur a parking charge.

Over Night Guest Parking Costs at Disney World Resorts

Deluxe Resorts: $24 per night

Valet Parking at select Deluxe Resorts: $33 per night (this is not new)

Moderate Resorts: $19 per night

Value Resorts: $13 per night

Other Parking Costs at Disney World

Guests have long been charged to park each day at the 4 Disney Parks; Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom.

Last year they introduced priority parking, which in my opinion was not a bad thing.? It gives guests the opportunity to choose to park up close to the entrance, or in the case of Magic Kingdom, close to the Ticket and Transportation Center.? (This is where guests will ride the monorail or ferry to the Main Gate of Magic Kingdom)

Guests can use each day’s parking ticket at all 4 theme parks by showing their receipt to the parking booth attendant.? You do not have to pay to park at multiple parks each day.

Current Parking Costs for the Theme Parks:

Preferred Parking – $45 per day

Standard Vehicles & Motorcycles – $22 per day

Oversized Vehicles such as Limos, Buses and RVs?- $27 per day

Parking at Other Disney World Guest Locations

Typhoon Lagoon & Blizzard Beach – Complimentary to all water park guests

Disney Springs – Complimentary to all guests

Valet Parking at Disney Springs – $20 gratuity not included

ESPN – Wide World of Sports – Complimentary to all guests

How To Save Money Parking at Disney World

And now, the thing we all want to know!? How can we save money while parking at Disney World?? After all, paying for parking seems like such a waste of money, right???

If you are flying into Orlando for you Disney vacation I highly recommend you do NOT rent a car.? There is really no need to have a car when staying on property at Disney.? And there are soooooo many reasons you should stay on property!

Upon arrival to the Orlando Airport, you will use Disney’s Magical Express that will deliver you to your resort and return you to the airport at the end of your vacation.? It’s complimentary with your stay.

While you are at Disney World you can use the various transportation systems; monorail, bus, and boats, that are available to guests staying on property.

If you are driving, there is not a real way to get around paying for parking overnight.? However, you should know that if you are staying at a Disney Resort, if you choose to drive your own car to the parks, you will park for free at each of the 4 theme parks.? This is one of the many nice perks when staying on property!? And there are so many reasons to stay and play at Disney World!
