I know this was meant mockingly, but it occurs to me that the parking charge might be the one ancillary charge that varies in price between resorts. Here are the fees I know about: Package delivery fee - same across resorts Room delivery of groceries - same across resorts Childcare services - same across resorts Pet cleaning fee - different for some resorts I understand that tipping housekeeping and bell services also bears a rough relationship with your room charge. Anyway, I just wanted to chime in that the price difference for overnight parking at different resorts is a bit of a curiosity. Though you could make some argument for it being loosely related to the underlying price of the land being higher for the MK resorts, that doesn't fly for WL or paying cash at SSR or OKW. I guess it all part of value-based pricing. :( It's ironic that businesses implementing value-based pricing most often results in customers receiving less value-for-money.

Thanks, my sarcasm font was on. There shoud not be a parking fee based on resort.

Nope the spots aren't any larger and if, anything most of the Deluxe resorts lots are further from the rooms than the Value or Mods are. Look at the GF where the parking is around the bend and across the street for self parking!! Boardwalk is no picnic either. Hope this helps!! Marie

I'm a DVC member so I don't have a dog in this fight. Having said that, why would parking be more expensive as you climb the resort ladder? I get that you pay more for a Deluxe room over a Value as it is bigger. Why would parking be more? Are the spots bigger?

What is super cool is when you are staying at a resort and cant get a spot anywhere near the hotel because the lot is full for dinner reservations. Poly and Contemporary I am looking at you.

They have essentially raised damn near everything about 15% this year. That is a HUGE number.

I see them as unfortunate, innocent victims. I think the thing to do would be to have free overnight resort parking be included in the Disney Dining Plans. Either that or pull a Vegas-style "comp the people who gamble a lot" thing and give out free parking certificates (for your next visit) when you spend a lot in your folio.

this lack of exception also seems to buck the popular theory its captive based....what say you to all those super money experts that disney also makes people who cannot legitimately fly to the world pay?

Price increases are coming one by one and in rapid succession. 25% annual pass increase! Now this. Hotel rates and ticket price increases are sure to follow. Restaurants....sure. Waiting for more resort fees. I'm thinking its time to cut the Disney cord.

Not for a while. Money's not of growing in trees.

Comparing paying for parking in Chicago or any big city isn’t a fair comparison. Most hotels don’t own the parking facilities in those locales and the ones who do charge everyone to park. They may offer validation for parking but only after you spend $$$$. Disney is the only place I know that will let a “guest” come park and stay as long as they want as long as they are not registered as an overnight guest. That’s why this fee by Disney is a shame and a hidden fee by them, done to do nothing but deceive their quoted nightly rate to look cheaper.

The different parking rates for value, moderate, and deluxe resorts has cracked me up since inception. Hey, folks, not only are you happier at a deluxe resort, but so is your car! :D

So agree - we’re about an hour and a half away - when I heard about resort parking fee I thought they wouldn’t include fl ap holders. Me just being dumb 😂 I thought they liked us coming up every other month. To combat I decline mousekeeping so that helps. Have also bring staying around Springs more and getting some great deals and using points. Between the crazy on property resort prices & parking fees on top it makes sense.
