It would solve a lot of problems by saying that unless you are staying at one of the monorail resorts and driving a car, you should have to park at the TTC and take the monorail over to the resorts - and then enforce it by not allowing you access to the lot.

We normally stay at the Poly and can't count the number of times we've tried to get a parking spot unsuccessfully especially between 5:00 pm and 11:00 pm. On our trip in October we returned from doing some shopping at the outlet mall and there was absolutely no where to park. We ended up parking in the 10 minute parking and when we advised the CMs both at the main desk and our own concierge/club level desk in the Hawaii building, they basically just acknowledged the problem but said as long as we had our parking pass displayed we wouldn't be towed.

We ended up going over to the MK that evening and at park closing joined the crowd on the monorail to the Poly. We decided to try and move our car to a more appropriate spot, and were shocked at the number of people we followed from the monorail that went out to the Poly parking lot, got in their cars and left. Needless to say, after the mass exodus of cars from the parking lot, we were able to find a parking spot without any problem.

This past May was no different - we always found it hard to find a parking spot in the Poly lot and most times ended up following someone back to their car and snagging their spot as they left.

Fortunately, we never had this problem when we stayed at the Poly or GF, but always ran into it at the Contemporary.

What we started doing...valet park and let the front desk know the situation. We were told we didn't have to pay the fee for valet under the circumstances. When enough resort guests do this, maybe then they will really crack down on the people who shouldn't be there.
