If you are driving to Disney Springs during its phased reopening process for a dining reservation there are some important things to know. First, did you know self-parking at the Disney Springs garages is FREE to use? The garages are also well-lit, maintained and make accessing Disney Springs a breeze.
Also keep in mind during this period of a phased reopening, check the My Disney Experience app to make dining reservations. The app will also show you which locations are open and hours of operation. Things may look a bit different right now, however there are still many delicious treats and meals waiting for you at Disney Springs! Now, read the must knows for driving to Disney Springs with a dining reservation.
As of Late 2020, only the Orange and Lime parking garages are open for guests. Valet and surface parking lots remain closed for now. Guests may enter, for temperature screenings at the following 5 entrances: Orange and Lime garage, Marketplace Entrance, bus loop near Town Center and at the rideshare drop off area.
If you are heading to Disney Springs for a dining reservation, this unfortunately does NOT guarantee a parking spot. This is due to current capacity restrictions. When the parking garages become full, no more guests will be able to park, even with a booked dining reservation.
However, the dining guarantee charge will be waived if a guest cannot make their reservation because of capacity issues. If a guest is unable to park and visit the restaurant due to garages being closed due to capacity, than they will have the dining guarantee fee waived.
Disney Spring recommends a one-hour grace period to park at Disney Springs. This gives you ample time to find a parking spot, walk to and show up at your reservation. For busier seasons or weekends, you may want to head over even earlier. On Buena Vista Drive are digital message boards that will indicate when a garage is full (as pictured above)!
