Parking Restrictions at Walt Disney World for Holiday Season

Share This!

Due to the extremely busy Holiday Season, a few of the Walt Disney World resorts in the Magic Kingdom area will have some parking restrictions.

  • Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort will be restricted until January 1
  • Disney’s Contemporary Resort will be restricted until January 13

These parking lots will only allow guests who are staying at the resort, those who are attending a conference, or those who have some sort of dining or recreation reservation to park in their gates.

    Great…my family is not staying on property, but we do have reservations at Chef Mickey’s on the 27th? Where am I supposed to park?

      Since you have a dining reservation, they will allow you in. However, your car will have a time limit it can stay parked in the Contemporary’s parking lot.

      I wouldn’t worry too much about it. You have a reservation for Chef Mickey’s –which gives you a reason to be there. Just bring your reservation number with you when you go to park there in case someone questions you. I would arrive at least 45 minutes prior to your reservation to give you adequate time to get into the restaurant. Wish I was there right now –ENJOY!

    Wow! Thank you all so much! Some of my friends don’t understand Disney, I say too bad for them! Thank you all again!

    These restrictions (at least for the contemporary) would seem to be in place year round. Are you allowed to park there if you were not doing something at/with the contemporary resort?
