Is it ok to use valet parking for all day

Like the title says, is it ok to park all day. For instance we have breakfast at kona then on to MK for the rest of the day. Is it acceptable to remain parked at the resort all day IF we use valet parking? Staying at okw but I hate how long the buses take at night and with the morning breakfast was wondering if this was an option. Thanks.

AFAIK, there are no time limits when you valet park. Other than very busy times like NYE, I've never noticed the valet lots anywhere near full. I would suggest you ask the valet when you arrive, just to be 100% sure.

This March we snuck in a 4 day Disney trip staying off site. To give the illusion that we were staying at our favorite resort, BW, and to eliminate to $14 parking fee at the parks, we did valet parking at BW in the AM in time to catch the bus to whatever park we wanted. We'd drive to the motel to freshen up then go back to BW in the PM for WS and Illuminations. As I recall the valet thing was good until midnight and the fee was $12. In 4 days we won't have to pretend.

...it's also customary to tip a buck or two each time you pick up the car. But, still, an affordable splurge.

If you paid 12 to valet what did you save buy doing that, the park is 14??
2 bucks

The hassle of trams, for starters.

We just wanted to pretend we were back at the BW during that spur of the moment trip, saving a few bucks isn't an issue for us, parking there for whatever the fee was worth it and we didn't have to pay for park parking as we used Disney transport. With the tip, which goes without saying, so I didn't say it, we paid more than $14 a day, my only point here was to answer the OP's question, can you park all day for the valet fee, the answer being 'yes'.
