Disney World Adding New Hotel Parking Fee for all reservations booked on or after March 21, 2018
Disney is implementing a new parking fee for guests of their official Disney World resort hotels who book their vacation on or after March 21, 2018. Perhaps this change was inevitable, after all, Universal has charged its official hotel guests for parking for as long as I can remember and so have the Swan, Dolphin and Disney Springs hotels, but I am disappointed to see this change. Free parking was a very nice perk.
Here is Disney's official announcement:
"Effective for reservations made March 21, 2018 and thereafter, standard overnight self-parking is available to registered Guests for a fee that will be applied to their hotel folio upon check-out. All parking fees include applicable tax.
Standard Overnight Parking charges per Resort Category:
Complimentary standard parking is available to Guests staying at Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. Each campsite provides parking space for one (1) motorized vehicle.
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 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.
Complimentary standard self-parking is available while enjoying select dining, shopping, entertainment, and recreation experiences at Disney Resort hotels." Source: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/guest-services/parking/
