Tell Me About Epcot Resort Parking

We currently have a reservation at POFQ but I'm thinking about changing to an Epcot resort (probably the Yacht Club). One thing that concerns me is parking - is there dedicated parking for resort guests or do you have to share with people visiting the Boardwalk? Thanks.

Each EPCOT resort has it's own parking "lot" area. If you have an ADR they will give you a 3 hour window to park then you have to move or risk being towed.

You can pay for valet parking and then you wont have to worry about moving after 3 hours.

Each EPCOT resort has their own self park lot as well as Valet parking. Have stayed at BWI and YC and self parking lots are not that inconvenient, nothing like the one for the GF, which is across the road!

I am not sure if the Yacht Club or Beach Club parking lots have these, but at the Boardwalk they have two other self parking lot for guests just going their with ADR's or to visit. One is located to the left of the guard shack at their main entrance and the other is located across the street behind the Hess station. This way they can save the main one which is a bit closer for guests just staying there.

Thanks everyone. That makes me feel better. Now I just have to hope for a decent discount for my dates.

I think the YC/BC parking is more convenient than the Boardwalk Inn. Dreading the parking situation in November, it's a longer walk for the driver (me). We used to valet, but it's not free+ tip any more.

YC/BC really is cracking down on their parking. If you dont have a reservation for a meal or your are a guest at the resort they are turning guest away. This has not been happening as much over at BW.
