Disney is going to start charging for WHAT? Seriously?!?
Fellow Mouseketeers, Staying at Resorts on Disney Grounds is going to get a bit more expensive if you plan on driving your own vehicle. Effective March 21st any resort reservations will be charged a standard overnight parking charge depending on which resort you stay at. (I have confirmed with a Disney representative, feel free to call if you have questions like I did)
Here is the price list according to their website WDWinfo.com (It will be being updated on March 21st)
- Value Resorts: $13 nightly
- Moderate Resorts: $19 nightly
- Deluxe Resorts: $24 nightly
If you prefer, valet parking for a cost of $33 a night will also be available at select Disney Deluxe Resorts.
My family has stayed at most the resorts, even DVR Members Resorts like Old Key West. Though we LOVE the Disney life and atmosphere of staying on grounds, we have recently started staying off grounds, and honestly prefer it. We rent a house and this way have our own kitchen, pool, etc.
On a positive note, if you do what my family does, and take a day off from the parks to resort hop and trade pins, enjoy the restaurants, the shops, etc. Complimentary Standard parking will still be free for visitors.
