As a DVC member can you come in from out of town and visit dvc resorts - park at the resort if show your member card?
Also are dvc members charged to park at theme parks if not staying on property?
Thanks.

Parking at resorts is a benefit of dining or maybe shopping at the resort if you are not staying there. Resorts do not offer parking to go to the theme park. Parking at the theme parks is a benefit of being an onsite resort guest or an AP holder. Being a DVC member doesn't give you any benefits if you aren't staying at a resort unless you are shopping or dining or taking part in a DVC sponsored event. No, you can't park for free at a theme park if you are a DVC member but not staying in an onsite resort (being a VB guest might be an exception to that rule).

thank you. I wasn't trying to "beat the system", just wanted to get my facts straight. It wasn't this complicated back in the early days of DVC when we bought in 1993.

    Resort parking is free for anyone visiting during the day whether DVC or not.
    Free theme park parking is for AP holders or guests who are staying anywhere onsite including DVC. But you cannot be offsite and get free theme park parking just as a DVC member - that is not a perk of DVC.

    None of this has actually changed in a very, very long time. The only change is the overnight resort parking for hotel guests.

    At the resorts near parks, Self Parking is often restricted to guests staying at those resorts. Valet is your best option if you wish to visit one of those resorts.

    If you have a dining reservation at the resort you are visiting they won't question it either.
