Annual pass holders can park anywhere, no? And we parked there twice when we had ADRs at the Contemp. Am I understanding this correctly, can any DVC point stay guest use the TOTWL? Is this permanent...will be at BCV in Jan and wouldn't mind going over to TOTWL? Also, can't any on site resort guest park at any resort on property? We've gone all over...to eat or to just check out the other resorts and never had trouble parking anywhere.

AP's have nothing to do with parking at the resorts.

TOTWL access is open to guests staying on DVC points until (in think) 8/25/12.

good idea re the 3 hour pass application but if you valet there are no restrictions.
I don't think that's a bad thing. For one, they are paying for the valet service. Also, if the lot is getting full, the valets can relocate cars.

i'm not going to re-open the 'why can't I valet park @ CR and do what i want' can of worms

also aware that they do relocate cars. Have wondered if they've explored offering a premium MK parking feature @ CR for a matching premium price.

You can park at a resort if you have dining reservations, but the only parking benefit that your AP gets you is to park in the parking lots of the theme parks with no charge. Your AP does not get you parking at the hotels, never has.

The Bay Lake parking lot empties out after Wishes just like the BWV/BWI parking lot empties after Illuminations.

However that all said I have minor gripes and was wondering others feelings.

First off DW and I find that overall the CM working in the lobby are less then friendly/enthusiastic. Find the same every trip. Every time we are in the lobby at CR they seem super friendly. BLT not so much. We had 1 gentlement that was very pleasant and helpful but overall whenever we walked in the CM working the lobby would look at us and then just look away. No "Welcome Home", No Hello, etc etc.
I had the same situation when we stayed at BLT. I always look forward to hearing "Welcome Home," and it does happen at all the other resorts where I've stayed, but not BLT. Very odd.

When we visited last October there always seemed to be CMs in the lobby (although we were probably always out until after 5). I thought that they were rather ignorant and we only got a Hello if we spoke to them first, they never even smiled!

There was CM named David in the lobby of BLT in August that was great. He went out of his way to help fix a problem that the manager at the Contemporary was supposed to be handling. I hope that he is still there because he was one of the best CMs we have come across at Disney in years.

We also had a wonderful CM...could've been David not sure. He went out his way to help me....so great!!! True though....never heard a welcome home. I get the best DVC feeling at SSR.

We just returned from a split stay at BLT and Beach Club and one night at OKW. I agree about the CMs at BLT. They were not "bad" but not half as friendly as those we encountered at BOTH other resorts (Beach Club was the regular resort part and not the villas FWIW).
