Going to see the Gingerbread house at Grand Floridian


DIS Veteran
Jan 20, 2001
Hi - We are interested in driving to the Grand Floridian on our arrival day to see and take pictures of the tree and gingerbread house. Is there short term (less than 2 hours) parking at the GF for this? Is there a fee? TIA
There is not. You can drive up to the entrance and ask if they will let you in. Many times they won't. You can always arrive by Disney transportation. You can park at the TTC and monorail over. Parking is free if you are staying onsite somewhere.
Agree with SharonZ - I highly doubt they’d let you park without a dining reservation…

We have been at The Grand since Friday. On busier days, they were handing out sheets to visiting guests stating there’s a 3 hour parking limit. There’s no fee, but you have to park over in guest parking lot across the street. You can pay for valet. Enjoy.

We are staying here now and they are definitely being very strict on parking. As others said, make dinner reservations or park elsewhere. Even with dinner reservations you are on a 3 hour limit and in the lot across the street unless you valet.
