Do you have to pay for parking at Walt Disney World theme parks?

Planning for a Walt Disney World trip requires setting money aside for your hotel, transportation, food and any merchandise you want to buy during your stay. It’s never fun to have an unexpected expense while you’re on vacation. With that in mind, should you expect to pay for parking at Walt Disney World’s theme parks?

The short answer is yes, Walt Disney World does charge for you to park at its theme parks. However, it does not charge for parking at its water parks, Disney Springs or at ESPN Wide World of Sports.

Guests visiting a theme park with their personal vehicle will have the option to pay for preferred parking or standard parking. Prices are seasonal and subject to change for these two options. Click here to see the current pricing for theme park parking.

It’s worth noting that your parking pass is valid for the entire day of your purchase. This means that you can start your day by paying for parking at the Magic Kingdom, then visit one of the other three theme parks without having to pay again for parking. You pay once daily and then can park hop as much as you’d like.

A select number of electric charging stations are available at each of the four theme parks. There is an additional charge for electricity used to recharge your vehicle.
