Walt Disney World raises parking fees for theme parks, valet parking

See also

Walt Disney World (WDW) Resort has raised the parking fees for its four theme parks. The increased price of $2 per day goes into effect Sunday, March 30.

WDW parking fees for the theme parks now cost $17 per day for guests arriving by cars, motorcycles, taxis, limos or shuttles. Guests arriving by campers are charged $18, and rates for those who use buses or tractor-trailers are $21.

Parking remains complimentary Disney guests staying on-property at WDW resort hotels. These guests need their valid Key to the World card or parking permit.

Walt Disney World annual and premium passholders also do not pay parking fees, as complimentary parking is offered with their admission media. The same is true for Disney Premier Passholders.

The price for valet parking at the Disney Deluxe Resort hotels has also increased, from $15 to $20 a day. Downtown Disney valet parking, when available, also costs $20 per day. Self-parking remains free at the hotels, Downtown Disney and the WDW water parks.

WDW last increased its parking fees June 2013.

In February, Walt Disney World increased its prices on theme-park tickets, with a one-day ticket to Magic Kingdom now costing $99 and the other three parks priced at $94 for a single-day admission. It is the second time within a year that WDW has increased its admission prices. Multi-day tickets offer a lower cost-per-day, dropping the per-day cost more with each additional day of admission.
