Breaking News: Disney World Resorts To Begin Charging Parking Fees

Walt Express is not very happy about this breaking news. We are, in fact, pretty mad-based on the information we have been given. So, don’t shoot the messenger. We have learned today that Disney World Resorts have implemented a BIG change beginning on March 21, 2018. Beginning on this date, if you book a stay in a Disney World Resort, you will be charged a resort parking fee. Yes, we know all of the bigger hotel chains and resorts do charge this fee, but part of the magic of staying on-site in a Disney Resort is the “no parking fee”.

Here is what we know so far. If anything changes, we will update this blog.
