At Chef Mickeys now - have question!

We drove from BWV and parked at CR for Chef Mickeys - can I leave my car here and take monorail to MK? Plan on staying all day.

Only if you used valet parking. If you didn't valet park, you have a 3 hour parking limit.

Saw your responses too late - DH had already decided that we should hop on the monorail - we stayed at MK until about 7:30 pm and then took a monorail back to the CR. Had no problem at all with leaving car in self parking. Luckily it worked out just as we had hoped!

It didn't work out quite so well for the couple paying hundreds of dollars a night to stay at the CR who came back to the hotel after breakfast out and couldn't find a place to park, since the lot was full from folks parking there and going to the MK on the Monorail!!!!

You were lucky. DW and I have personally seen vehicles being towed from both the CR and Poly lots.

You are in a no win situation here. The Disney police didn't get you, but the DIS police will.

Your profile says you've been DVC members since 02 - I really would have thought that you'd know that this isn't allowed.
