Changes Coming To Guests Parking At The Walt Disney World Resorts

I really hate when I have to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems as though Disney has decided to make some changes for Guests who plan on bringing and parking a vehicle at Disney Resorts overnight. Up until now, this has been a Free Perk for Guests who drive to Disney World. And although we never use our car during our time at Disney, being able to Park for Free was always a perk that I liked, especially since we don’t always fly to Orlando.


If you have already made Reservations for an upcoming vacation, not to fear…this will not effect you!

However, anyone who makes a Reservation after March 21, 2018 will now be charged a fee (per night!) for standard overnight self-parking. This fee will be applied to your hotel folio upon check-out. All parking fees include tax.


Standard Overnight Parking charges per Resort Category:

Disney Value Resorts: $13 per night
Disney Moderate Resorts: $19 per night
Disney Deluxe and Deluxe Villa Resorts: $24 per night

This does not apply to guests who stay at the Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. Standard Parking will still be Complimentary. Each campsite provides a parking space for ONE motorized vehicle.

Valet Parking:
Valet Parking is available at select Disney Deluxe Resorts and Disney Deluxe Villas for $33 per night (sales tax included).

Guests with Disabilities
Designated parking areas are available throughout the Walt Disney World Resort for Guests with disabilities. A valid disability parking permit is required.

Disney Vacation Club:
Members will not be charged for standard overnight self-parking when staying at a DVC Deluxe Villa, regardless of whether they use vacation points or another form of payment. Members also will not be charged to park when using vacation points to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

Day Guests:
Since the fees only apply for guests who are parking their vehicles overnight at the Resorts, Complimentary standard self-parking is available while enjoying select dining, shopping, entertainment, and recreation experiences at Disney Resort hotels.


Will this change your decision to fly vs drive to Walt Disney World?
