Disney World Enforcing Parking Restrictions for Guests with Reservations Only. We know the parking question comes up all year long, but more so during the Holidays here at Walt Disney World Resort. Some people are headed to the parks, but first want to stop and see the Gingerbread Displays, or maybe you have a Dining reservation at a Monorail resort loop hotel.

Let’s try and break down the restrictions of what you can and cannot do during the Holidays when it comes to parking.

The actual rule of parking at Disney Resort is both simple, and not very simple at the same time. You cannot park at a Disney resort if you are only going to a Park unless you are a guest of that resort.

At Deluxe Resorts, Resorts closest to the parks, and some along the Skyline you must either be a guest of the resort or must have a dining reservation at that resort.

At the outside resorts such as All-Stars, Port Orleans, and Coronado parking can be hit or miss depending on the guards, we really do not know.

You can access the resorts, say to see the Gingerbread House display at grand Floridian Resort and Spa by bus, water taxi, monorail, or uber/Lyft. They are still open for everyone to see the holiday decorations and displays.

So here is a major issue that pops up when Disney is expecting larger crowds, like the 50th Anniversary or Christmastime. Even if you want to visit an actual paying guest staying at any resort, you may be turned away and told to find a different route to the Resort to visit them.
