    If we're staying offsite at a villa but need to drive into disney to eat at a restaurant, what charges will have to be paid? It's actually the contemporary so will we need to pay magic kingdom parking? can we park at the hotel? do we have to pay for parking there or what?

    You can park at the hotel. The guard will give you a 3 hour pass. Self parking is free. If you valet there is a charge

    Having an ADR at a Disney resort hotel will usually get you listed on the Guard's roster so he can check to see. I believe if there are charges for parking (like going through MK gate) you will be able to get those waived, but I'm not sure quite how that happens.

    If you are going to ANY of the MK resorts you do not have to go through the MK gates. Just go down past the OKW and Port Orleans resorts to the light at the end and turn left.

    That's true. But people get all confused when I tell them that.

    We were very pleased with that shortcut when at 6.50am we realised our Chef Mickeys ADR was for 7am and not the 7.30am that we thought! We made it from POR to throwing me out of the car and running to Chef Mickeys to book us in while DH parked in 10 minutes!
