Disney have announced a rise in parking charges from $17 to $20.  

Having visited most of the Disney World parking lots during the summer I do think this still represents good value for money.  With good signs, clear traffic management, friendly transportation staff and plenty of parking spaces, parking at Disney was not too stressful.

Top tip for parking (particularly for tourists)

Parking in such a big parking lot can feel like a daunting experience for the first time visitor but here are a few tips.

  • Use your mobile phone and take photos of your car, your parking lot, your space and the end of the row so you know where you have parked.
  • When you collect your hire car at the airport take a photo of the number plate and make a note of the details.
  • Bring a soft plush toy on holiday with you and place it in the back window of the car.  This will make it much more easy to find later when you are walking around the park.
  • If you have any problems with your car, simply raise your hood and wait for assistance.
