If you want to live in the RV, there's Fort Wilderness, the Disney-operated on-site campground. Disney Transport to the parks and resorts is provided at no charge. You should visit the camping board for more info.

If you just want to use it to travel and drive it to the parks, RV parking is available at all the parks, and I think also at the resorts. If you'll be staying off site, RV parking costs a dollar or 2 more per day than car parking.

If you're parking an RV at the parks, expect to walk a bit further to the entrance. RV's are usually parked at the end of the row, or in a separate area. It varies depending upon which park and the expected attendance level.

Thank you. I should have posted more info, sorry about that. ;-)
We will be staying onsite at AoA, i just wanted to be sure that rv parking was available at the resorts and parks, and that it wouldnt be a huge hassle compared to using the bus system for the resorts. I appreciate your quick response!

I was at AoA the first week of January and there were a few RV's parked about the lots. AoA, Pop, and All Star have rather large parking lots and usually dont fill up. Park it out in the far end and usually no problem getting a couple spots together.
Upcoming Trips:
April 18 Epcot / MV Magic 19-26 / MK April 26
August 6-11 VWL

You may drive an RV to a resort or a park but you may not sleep in it (or in any kind of vehicle) at any time unless it is parked on a campsite. Currently at Disney, Fort Wilderness is the only on-site campground.

I have been told that it is okay to return to the RV in the park parking lot for lunch.

Do not leave pets in the RV while you are not there. Particularly in hot weather, vehicles may be broken into for the purpose of rescuing pets if security even suspects that the interior is too hot.
Last Disney trip: December 2010.
To prevent a repeat of the Deflategate scandal: Both teams should use the same ball for all plays (until the ball becomes damaged when it is then autographed and taken to the souvenir shop).
