While the Disneyland Resort is a wonderful place to have a Disney vacation, many Guests are familiar with the recent price hikes that the Disney Resort has seen along with the increase in prices with Genie+ and Lightning Lane. Along with this, the Disney Park has also seen an increase in prices for parking at the Park.

However, some Cast Members recently made the day of a family using the Disneyland Resort Parking structure, starting off the magic in their Disney vacation before they even stepped foot into the Park.

Reddit user u/adamzamora shared on the social media platform how he and his family were presented with the “Guest of the Day” certificate at the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure.

The user shared, along with this photo,

We went to Disneyland last month and when we went to go park we were handed this. The 2 parking attendants said we were the parking guests of the day and comped our parking ($30) and then we got the very first spot, located next to the handicapped spots. It was marked with a cone, which they removed, right next to the tram. Definitely a great way to start the day!

Many other users in the comments chimed in with how they’d also been recipients of the unexpected magic as well.

Reddit user u/Philthy420 said, “This happened to my wife and I about 4 years ago. It was the Toy Story parking lot. We didn’t get a cool certificate. We did get the first spot that was blocked with a cone. Marked guests of the day. We also got to ride our own bus without anyone else on it. Oh and free parking for the day. It was truly unexpected magic.”

Another user, u/MaizeApprehensive166 also added, “My certificate looks different but I loved being the guest of the day. We had free parking at a prime spot and at the end of the night after fireworks we were able to bypass the entire line and take our own bus back to the Toy Story lot. The looks we got from people in line were priceless ?”

Some Guests didn’t know this existed and were surprised to learn of its existence, but all in all, the thread was an example of the persistence of Disney magic for many.
