Thank you for your continued support and patience!

Is there a fee to park at WDW?

Is the fee to park at WDW per day? Based on your article I believe it is. So if you go in 5 days, you would pay that fee per day? There’s no bulk discount?

Thank you for all the information on your site!

Dad’s Yes and No Answer

Yes, there is a fee for parking at the Walt Disney World theme parks. It’s $20 per day. That’s the simple answer. But…

If you stay at a Disney Hotel, parking is free even at the theme parks. But Dad, you might be saying, if I’m staying at a Disney Hotel, don’t I have access to Disney Transportation?

Why, yes, yes you do. But if you have a car, you might want to use it to get to the parks instead of using Disney Transportation. Let’s talk about that for a minute.

You should always use Disney Transportation to get to the Magic Kingdom if you’re staying onsite. It just makes sense. The monorail, boats and buses let you off right at the front gate. If you drive your car, you still have to take the monorail or a boat to get to the park. So for the Magic Kingdom it’s always Disney Transportation.

If you are staying in one of the EPCOT Area Hotels (Boardwalk, Beach and Yacht Club, Swan and Dolphin) it’s easier to walk to EPCOT. If you are on the Magic Kingdom monorail then monorail to EPCOT. But other than that it’s best to drive to EPCOT

Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, drive, always drive.

Anywhere else on property, and off, it’s best to drive your car.

OH, OH!!! One thing I forgot, you only pay for parking 1 time per day. Just keep your tag and you can go from park to park during the day.

One more thing, if you have an Annual Pass you get FREE parking.

Dad’s Bottom Line

The bottom line is Disney charges $20 for parking. Every day. For as many days as you go. No discounts for multiple days.

And that’s the way it is…
