On our last day at Disney, we had virtually all day to visit the parks before catching our flight home. This was a unique situation for us as we would need to take advantage of the parking at Walt Disney World.
I could picture us wandering around the vast parking lot looking for our car at the end of the day, missing our flight in the process.
Walt Disney World Preferred Parking
Our first stop of the day was at Epcot, and I noticed when we pulled up, signs for preferred parking. It was $40 compared to the standard $20 to park at the Disney parks.
In a rare moment of being in sync when it comes to a situation like this, the hubs and I looked at each other and said: “let’s try it.”
$40 lighter, we were given a pass to get into the preferred lot. Now, we were arriving right about 9 am which was when the park opened that day, so we were about the 4th aisle from the very front.
As we hopped out of the car we were greeted by a very helpful cast member, who had in her possession a cooler full of ice cold bottles of water. She was a very welcome sight since it was already super hot out.
The plan for our last day with Mickey and friends was simple. We were going to hit three parks Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and the Magic Kingdom with the intent of riding our favorite rides one last time.
Why we liked preferred parking at Walt Disney World
Getting back to our car efficiently was very important to us, time was key because we would likely be rushing to the car to head for the airport.
Parking using the preferred parking at Epcot allowed us to be the most efficient traveling from park to park. We knew that we would be taking the monorail from the Magic Kingdom back to Epcot where we would get in our car and head out of town.
When we arrived back to Epcot, waiting for us again in the preferred parking area, was the cast member with ice cold waters, within minutes we had gotten from the monorail platform into our car and out of the parking lot.
As we were pulling out, my husband and I commented that we would plan to use Walt Disney World’s preferred parking on the last day from now on.
Tell us: Have you ever considered utilizing preferred parking at Walt Disney World?
