Question Cape May breakfast and on to Epcot - can I leave the car at BC?

We are driving, so can I just leave the car and enjoy my day at Epcot?

Thanks!

If you use self-park, you will likely be given a three-hour pass. If you valet park the car, it can stay there up to 24 hours without a problem.

Valet the car and it can stay there as long as you like. It's $15 for the day and it's worth it.

You can park in the BC lot while you're having breakfast, but there is a sign at the entrance stating that it is not for theme park parking. If you want to leave your car there all day you need to valet it. Otherwise please move it to the Epcot lot after breakfast.

Agreed. Bonus... If you have a Tables in Wonderland card the valet parking is free, with your receipt.

TIW valet will only work if you pick up your car within 3 hours. If the car's in the valet longer than that, they'll most likely charge you the $15.

Other than the discounts, this is my most favorite thing about TIW, we'll be doing just what you're thinking about after our CMC breakfast next month.

We have TIW valeted and gone to the park after and had no problem. I was even told to have a "nice day at the park" after checking in. :-)

Every time I have valet parked using TIW, I had to show a receipt that indicated I used the TIW discount within the last three hours. Otherwise, we would have to pay. I even asked the lady at the GF valet desk about this.

What you are doing is an abuse of the TIW card.

We have as well. If they tell you to pay because it's been over three hours, then you pay. If they comp you the valet, it's their decision.

By the way... this is directly from the Tables in Wonderland page. The 3 hour time limit is for theme park parking, not resort parking. There is no caveat for parking at a resort, so there is no violation according to their page.

Quote:
Valet and Parking:
Resort valet services are complimentary to members, for the sole purpose of dining at one of the participating Resort restaurants. This privilege will only be extended to one vehicle per membership card. Present your membership card with a valid dining receipt from the participating Resort restaurant at the Valet Stand upon retrieving your vehicle. On Tables in Wonderland Block-Out dates, there will be a charge for parking and valet services.

Unless your meal takes longer than three hours at a resort, you are violating the rules of the plan. Only Victoria & Albert might take longer than three hours. The plan says for the sole purpose of dining at one of the participating Resort restaurants, not for going to the theme park.

Unless you're getting valet, please don't. Parking can be a bear and is already far enough away w/o having theme park guests taking up closer spaces.
