Hang onto your mouse ears! As if you weren’t already spending enough money on your trip, Walt Disney World Resort just confirmed that guests will be charged a nightly fee to park overnight at Resort hotels. This new policy applies to reservations made after March 21, 2018.
As of now, Disney does not have this information available on their website, but we have confirmed with a representative that details will be live on March 21st. Information similar to the overnight parking fee policy originally stated on Disney’s website can be found WDWinfo.com.
The rates vary based on which Resort guests will be staying at:
- Value: $13 nightly
- Moderate: $19 nightly
- Deluxe: $24 nightly
Guests can also choose to use valet parking at select Deluxe Resorts for $33 per night.
However, if you’re a Disney Vacation Club member, you will NOT be charged standard parking fees when staying at DVC Deluxe Villa – a nice promo since you’re probably already paying through the nose with monthly membership and maintenance fees.
If there’s any happily ever after, at least the complimentary self-parking will remain for guests with disabilities, Cast Members staying as guests, guests traveling as part of a group or convention, guests staying at campsites at Fort Wilderness, and those who wish to dine, shop, enjoy activities, or visit a resort for the day.
Again, the overnight parking fees will go into effect for reservations made on or after March 21st, so you still have about a week to book your trip take advantage of free overnight parking for a future trip.
(Thanks for the heads up on this, Lisa!)
