Best Way To get to Contemporary & Parks


I have an 11:30am reservation at Chef Mickey's (Contemporary Hotel) We are staying off property on International Drive. Later that night we have the Wishes Dessert Party so I want to just start the day off at Chef Mickey's then go to Magic Kingdom for the day/evening.

My question is can I park at the Contemporary all day/night and even if I can is it easier and better to park in the MK parking lot so we can access our extra clothes easier??

Thanks for your help.

You may not park at the Contemporary (or any resort you are not staying at) all day while you go off to a park although the parking valet might not object when he takes your keys in the hopes of getting a bigger tip.

Typically you are give a 3 hour parking pass when visiting resorts with quick access to parks.

Best choice is to park at the Magic Kingdom lot (ticket & transportation center) and take the monorail over to the COntempoaray. Or you can drive to Chef Mickeys and then drive to the MK lot when you are done.

Today's riddle: Q: Why are there these 20 foot timber or stucco walls between the freeway and people's back yards? A: So people living there don't put up huge Christmas light displays and distract passing motorists.

Your can park at the Transportation & Ticket Center parking lot and use the Resort Monorail to the Contemporary, then go to the Magic Kingdom when your done.

However if you don't mind paying $12.00 + a tip you can Valet Park your car all day at the Contemporary, because that way you aren't taking up a self parking spot.
