Who Has to Pay for Parking at the Disney Theme Parks?

Registered Disney Resort Guests, Platinum Plus, Platinum, Gold and Silver Passholders, Premium Passholders and Disney Premier Passport holders may park at the theme parks (standard parking) during regular park hours free of charge.

In addition, guests with Florida Resident Silver Pass, Florida Resident Weekday Select Pass and Epcot After 4 P.M. Pass get complimentary theme park parking.

Simply present your pass or MagicBand and photo ID when you reach the toll plaza.

Non-Disney resort guests, or those staying off Disney property (with the exception of the above-mentioned passholders and program members) will be charged to park a vehicle at the four major Walt Disney World theme parks. You only need to pay for parking once a day, though, and can move from park to park that day without paying again. Just show the parking receipt you received at the first park to the cast member at the next park’s tollbooths to enter without paying an additional charge.

What Are the New Prices?

As of October 16, the daily parking charges are:

  • Preferred Parking: car or motorcycle – $50 (Passholders and Resort Guests with “free parking” only pay $25)
  • Standard Parking: car or motorcycle – $25
  • Oversized Vehicles: Shuttle, Limo, Camper Trailer, RV, Bus, Tractor Trailer – $30

What About Parking for Guests with Disabilities?

Designated parking areas are available throughout Walt Disney World Resort for visitors with disabilities. A valid disability parking permit is required and standard parking rates apply.

As far as we’ve been able to determine, no other parking prices have been affected, but we’ll keep eyes open and will update you if we learn otherwise!

  1. Resort guests pay $25 to park at the resort or the $25 applies to the “parking lots” for any and all cars regardless of on property
    overnight guest?

    1. This price increase relates to parking at the Disney theme parks. Registered Disney resort hotel guests DO NOT have to pay for parking at the theme parks. (They do have to pay for parking at their Disney resort hotel.) If you are staying at a non-Disney hotel then you do have to pay $25/day to park at a Disney theme park.

    2. I believe you only get one car parking pass given to the registered guest. You can’t have 4 people stay in a room, all bring a car and get parking passes.
