Parking at Disney Hotels is now paid!
A piece of news that we would not like to have to share. But now the parking lot hotels from disney is no longer free.
It was really a surprise for us and everyone, because I didn't imagine that Disney would have that attitude.
Parking will be charged to all guests booking from March 21, 2018.
This will certainly encourage people to use Disney's free transportation (which is already congested) even more.
On our last visit we stayed for a few days at All Star Movies, we chose to go to the parks by car because Disney transport was getting very crowded.
We imagine that now they will be even more so as most tourists and visitors will choose not to rent a car as there is now a large expense to be considered in addition to the car rental itself.
Parking prices in Disney hotels vary according to the hotel category (Values in dollars):
- Budget Disney Hotels: US$ 13.00 overnight (All Star Resorts, Pop Century and Art of Animation)
- Moderate Disney Hotels: US$ 19.00 overnight stay (Caribbean Beach, Coronado Springs, Port Orleand Riverside, Port Orleans French Quarter)
- Disney Deluxe Hotels and Disney Deluxe Resort Villas: US$ 24.00 overnight (Theanimal kingdom lodge, Grand floridian, Polynesian Resort, Contemporary, Yatch Club, Beach Club, Wilderness Lodge, Boardwalk Inn, Old Key West, Saratoga Springs)
For now, the parking for those who have restaurant reservations in hotels Disney to be continued free.
We are saddened by the news because we know that it is no longer a Cheapest travel. But we hope that the news is useful for anyone to be caught by surprise.
In case you haven't seen it, on our YouTube channel we did a tour of All Star Movies (and we've already done other reviews on other hotels too!), don't you know? Check out the video below!
Tip for not paying for parking at Disney hotels
Well, the tip for not paying for parking at the Disney hotel is simple! Do not rent a car and do not park there.
One of the great advantages of staying at Disney is being able to enjoy certain comforts that Disney offers.
Some of them are:
- The transfer from the airport to the hotels called Disney's Magical Express (which will be suspended from 2022).
- Transfers from hotels to parks such as:
We particularly love that feeling of being fully in the “Disney bubble” that is coming out of a park and get on a Disney shuttle and end up at a hotel!
So if you are looking to stay there, take advantage of these facilities, mainly because Disney hotels tend to be more expensive than other hotels in Orlando in general, such as those in Internal Drive for example.
So get the most out of what you pay for and enjoy all the conveniences Disney has to offer!
And of course, have a good trip!
