Basic Park Information (continued)
First Aid—First aid stations are at the four theme parks and two water parks (see maps).
Guest Relations—An information desk, located inside and outside the front gates of all four parks and Disney Springs. Lobby Concierge at resorts provides a similar range of services.
Guidemaps—Free maps available at the parks. See also “Times Guide.”
Lockers—Available for a fee ($8–$10 + $5 deposit) in each park and at the Transportation and Ticket Center. Save your receipt for a new locker at another park on the same day.
Lost & Found—Lost items or children can be claimed at a central location in each park. Consult a guidemap or a cast member. Also see page 281.
Money—Pay with Disney Dollars, Disney Gift Cards, cash, traveler’s checks, American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, JCB, Diner’s Club, Disney Visa Reward Vouchers, Apple Pay, and Google Wallet. Disney Gift Cards are sold at parks, resorts, and most U.S. Disney Stores. ATMs are in the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. Disney resort guests can charge to their room.
Packages—Park purchases can be delivered and held for pick-up near the park exit at all major parks, and Disney resort guests can have packages delivered to their resort the next afternoon free of charge. Inquire about package delivery before purchasing.
Park—Disney’s recreational complexes requiring admission, which include the four major parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom) and four minor parks (Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon, ESPN Wide World of Sports, and DisneyQuest). Descriptions begin on page 129. You must be 14 or older to enter a park alone.
Parking—Fee is $22 a day for cars/motorcycles and $27 for camper/trailers/bus/tractor trailers. Preferred parking is $45 and it puts you closer to the park entrance. Parking is free to Disney resort guests; Swan/Dolphin, Shades of Green, and Disney Springs Hilton guests; and Annual/Premium/Premier Passholders. Tables in Wonderland members park free after 5:00 pm. Tip: Save your receipt to park free at another park on the same day.
PhotoPass—This service lets you view all photos taken by Disney’s photographers at http://www.disneyphotopass.com. No more waiting in long queues to view/buy photos.
Queue—Waiting area/line for an attraction or character meet.
Re-Entry—Guests may exit and re-enter the same park on the same day. Be sure to hold on to your pass and bring photo ID. Disney uses a safe finger scan (biometrics) when you enter and re-enter a park (see photo).
Security—All bags are searched before entering parks. Some guests may be asked to pass through a scanner as well.
Shopping—Shops sell Disney and themed items. We list the best shops in this chapter.
Smoking—Prohibited in resorts, buildings, queues, and parks, except in designated smoking areas (see park maps).
Strollers & Wheelchairs—Strollers ($15/single stroller, $31/double, $13–$27/day for length-of-stay rental), wheelchairs ($12/day—no deposit, $10/day for length-of-stay rental), and ECVs ($50/day + $20 deposit) can be rented at the parks. Limited availability—arrive early, bring your own, or rent elsewhere (see page 36). Save your receipt for a free rental at another park on the same day, but there’s no guarantee a rental will be available. Tip: Save money and get better strollers by renting from Orlando Stroller Rentals (http://www.orlandostrollerrentals.com).
Tax—Florida and county sales tax totals 6.5%.
Times Guide—Free listing of attraction hours and showtimes—pick up as you enter the parks.
