Disney Tips for Adults

One of my favorite tips that I've learned recently:

The Disney Dining Experience card gives you free valet to eat places. This is nice in and of itself, but it's also nice to use say if you want to go to Epcot, you can just valet at the Beach Club. You may have to tell them you're going to eat though. This might sound like a misuse, but it was advocated by a cast member so I say its fair game.

Epcot I go to Yacht and Beach Club and Magic Kingdom I go to Polynesian and ride the monorail (or occasionally go to the Contemporary and walk). I always thought that was 'cheating' until we had an early breakfast at the Crystal Palace and we called the information line to ask how we got there. They told us to park at the Polynesian...sold!

MGM I park in their lot unless I'm going to Epcot too, then I take the boat or occasionally the long trek from the Boardwalk.

Animal Kingdom there is of course no alternative Sad

Really?? I've always thought that was a no-no. Maybe it's just allowed for breakfasters? confused

But if you get there early (or late) enough, it's not a bad walk. mickey

Valet has been a recent addition for me. I had never used it before, but it's kinda nice. Hopefully everyone knows that if you pay for valet at your "home" resort, you can use it anywhere else you go. So if you're having dinner at Boma and you paid for valet at Wilderness lodge, you can valet at AKL for free. (except the tip)

I do not believe this is true for Swan or Dolphin guests but I am not sure.
