Disney Seems to Be Promoting This Perk to the WRONG People

There are plenty of great things about staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel!

Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club

They have great food, spectacular theming, and they’re close to the parks with free transportation. If you don’t want to use the transportation that Disney provides, you’re even welcome to bring your own car (though you’ll have to pay overnight parking fees). And now, Disney is promoting bringing your own car, but they’re doing it at the wrong time!

We recently had a stay at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and we noticed a new message popping up on the television. It’s a “Transportation Tip” that appears at the bottom of the screen, noting that Resort guests receive complimentary parking at the theme parks.

It’s an interesting way to share this tip…

While we’re sure that Disney means well with this reminder (and maybe hopes to decrease crowding on buses and other forms of transportation), it’s an odd time to remind guests. If you’re posting this on the TV at the resort, then the guests reading it have already arrived and made the decision whether or not to bring their cars. If they drove, they’re likely planning on driving to the parks anyway, and if they didn’t, then they can’t do anything about it now.

Thanks for the reminder, but it’s a little late.

Currently, Disney World Resort hotel guests are paying to park at their hotel, costing $25 a night at Deluxe Resorts, $20 a night at Moderate Resorts, and $15 a night at Value Resorts. However, while you are paying for hotel parking, theme park parking is then complimentary with your stay.

It interesting that Disney is promoting this perk — their free transportation options must be a little too busy for their liking! We’re especially curious to see the message at Caribbean Beach, home to the central Skyliner station.

We’ll be on the lookout for any more messages from Disney, so stay tuned. Here at AllEars, we’re visiting Walt Disney World daily to bring you the latest updates!

  1. Parking was always free at the theme parks for guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel. All you had to do was show your resort parking pass and they waved you through at the theme park toll plazas. The only thing that has changed the last few years is the new parking fee at the resorts. That used to be free too, but I guess Disney needed to squeeze a little extra on top of the sky high resort prices.

  2. A Disney vacation is unbelievably expensive, and Disney has decided to be merciful and allow us to park for free. Oh thank you, merciful Disney World. That will come in handy when they get rid of the bus rides from the airport.

  3. If you drive in from out of town, can you unload and park for free at one of the parks? You can leave your car there or get it and drive around for the day and leave it there at night; there by avoiding the hotel parking fee. That parking fee is too big, next they will have a toilet paper fee.
