Walt Disney World Changing Preferred Parking at Disney Springs

There will be changes to preferred parking starting on July 8th at Disney Springs.  Currently the lots with preferred parking are Lemon (Marketplace) or Grapefruit (West Side). Guests can currently pay $10 to park in these lots in order to get closer parking to shopping and dining.  The change starting on July 8th will be the change for which lots offer preferred parking.  Starting on that date, Lemon and Mango will be the parking lots that offer the service.  The price will still be $10 for the day.


Self parking will still be available in all of the other garages.  There is also parking for individuals with disabilities.  Guests are also able to valet park if they don’t want to have to deal with parking in one of the garages.  Valet parking costs $20.  The valet parking has three different locations with different sets of hours by locations. The locations are as follows:

  • Orange Garage:  10 AM to 2 AM
  • Lemon:  4 PM to 2 AM
  • West Side (in front of Cirque du Soleil):  4 PM to 2 AM

Have any of you used the preferred parking yet at Disney Springs?  If so, what did you think of it?  Was it worth the extra spend to park there?
