If you are staying on-site at a Disney Resort you may be given a pass to put on the dashboard of your car. Most of the Resorts though have now switched across to the use of your Magic Band.There seems to be no consistency as to whether you get a pass or not!
The pass gives you free parking at Disney Resorts and entitles you to free parking at Disney's four main theme parks.
If you are a Disney Annual Passholder then you are also entitled to free parking at the main theme parks.
In addition Tables in Wonderland Card holders can use valet parking for free if utilising that Card for dining. The dining reciept must be produced on collection of the car and a tip is still required
If you are not staying in a Disney Resort then you will be required to pay a parking charge at the main theme parks.
Guests need only pay for parking once per day and can hop from park to park without incurring additional parking fees. Guests just need to keep their parking receipt and show this to the attendant at the next park.
