Are you going right after your wedding? If so, as an Orlando resident, I recommend buying some cheap plastic ponchos – the ones that are packed at about the size of a deck of cards. This way when you get hit by the short, afternoon showers, etc you already have something without paying the $20 for a disney poncho.

Oh, and go here: http://www.floridadiscountsavings.com/

Register/print out the Tourist Savings Card they’ll email you. You can go through the site and find all the places that accept the card for savings.

Oh and a tip for the parks if you’re not staying in a Disney Hotel and are renting a car. Park in downtown Disney and take the free transportation to avoid the $12/day park parking.

There is no more direct transportation from DTD to the parks to avoid people trying to skip out on the $12 parking fee.

WDWBride… there isn’t? My brother and his girlfriend just did it 2 months ago when they visited. Did they just recently do this?

EDIT: nevermind, I remember now that they couldn’t do that but found out they could park at a resort for free by just saying they were interested in staying there on their next trip.

That is still really discouraged…usually you are given a 3 hour pass if you are going to a Disney Resort.  Imagine if you went back to your own hotel and couldn’t find a place to park because people who weren’t guests of the hotel parked there.  Just saying…

Personally, I would try it next time I go because paying $12 a day is pretty absurd and can add up for a family vacation.

And I don’t really think that the resort would be out of parking spots… there is quite a lot and I’ve known people who stay in the resorts to avoid renting a car in the first place. If I did it only to end up getting a ticket or towed, then fine, my bad.

A further note, it was a Disney employee that told my brother to park there to avoid the fee.

Saving $12 is worth getting towed? PLUS if you stay on Disney Property saves time and you wouldn’t even need a car. We like to have one anyway but some of Disney’s resorts can be inexpensive depending on the time of year.  The value resorts can be $80!!  We are only paying $130 a night by renting from one of Disney’s Vacation Club Members (timeshare) which we hope to buy into soon.

Concerning the parking situation -I’d never recommend parking at a resort if you weren’t planning on at least dining there =)  Just sayin’ =)  If you stay on property, you don’t have to pay for parking anyway.
