So, when you go up to the parking lot attendant, you plan on saying "I'd like to park in the spots allocated to those going to the golf game, but I have no intention of going to the golf game"? If not, then you are using deception and fraud and are scamming the system.

Being upfront on the message board does not, in any way, make what you are asking about not a scam.

And it says it in information about the golf tournament. If I took information about things provided complimentarily to guests staying on the Club Level of my hotel, I couldn't say - "It says that food in the lounge is complimentary, that means I that should get it free, even though I'm not staying on the Club Level". That is what you are trying to say.

As a reminder, "the site" is the website of the CMNHC to provide information to attendees. It's not the Walt Disney World site, the Magic Kingdom site, the TTC, site, the WDW parking site, the "how to avoid paying for parking at WDW when you're staying offsite" site...

Saying you are going to the golf tournament to avoid paying for parking, then instead proceeding to the theme park is deception and fraud. And as the Esteemed Moderator has indicated, this public forum doesn't support posting information on circumventing Disney rules. Either pay for parking, move onsite, or go to the tournament instead of the parks.

Yes. As I have said, no deception intended. I just am merely to trying to find out if anyone has actually done this, and what happened.

And it may not be very easy to get from that lot to an area that is served by the tram in order to allow you to bypass paying a parking fee. You are not entitled to park there if not part of the golf tournament. So, they may very likely ask to see your 'participation proof'.
I would recommend you just pay the daily parking fee.
Quite logically reasoned out. I agree with most of this speculation.

You have stopped short of claiming that this thread actually is discussing a way to circumvent Disney policy, and I applaud your restraint. The fact is that despite my best efforts, I cannot find any policy (direct or otherwise) that restricts the use of the free golf parking at the MK. I have done a google search; visited the event website; visited the event page on the Disney World Site, etc. I have only found one reference to the free parking (which I have quoted twice already). If there is other information available, please direct me to it.

As I have been saying all along, I only started this thread to seek specific information about other's experiences. While continuing to respect everyone's opinion on this topic, I will happily acknowledge any other relevant information, especially if the information confirms that there is in fact a specific Disney policy that prohibits using the free golf parking for any other purpose.

I have in fact taken this matter to a ‘higher’ authority, and made a direct inquiry on the ‘contact us’ tab on Walt Disney World site.

Quote:
During the week of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, free parking is offered at the Magic Kingdom for golf patrons. If I park in this lot, can I then proceed to the TTC and visit the Magic Kingdom without attending the golf tournament? Also if I do attend tournament, and then return to my vehicle, can I proceed to the TTC and visit the MK without any additional parking fee?
I will respectfully report back any reply.

Once again, I appreciate everyone’s efforts. Thank you for your time.

Other specific information is that "others" on here would be honest about it, and not try to scam for free parking.

The quote from the CMNH page regarding parking says:

Once again in 2012 parking for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic will be complimentary for all tournament guests. All tournament guests will park at Disney's Magic Kingdom parking lot. A continuous shuttle will bring all tournament guests from the parking location to the tournament site. For more information, please call (407) 824-2250.



I would suggest that the OP contact this phone number and ask THEM if it's ok to use this parking location for *free* theme park parking.

I admit, I fell for it but....

It's time to quit feeding the troll.

Anyone who really thinks Disney is going to say "sure what we meant was EVERYONE can park free that day" is either just completely out of touch with reality or a troll..... And when almost 80% of your posts are on this...troll seems to fit.
