If you cross the street and see a mini van, which a lot of people do, just take the keys and lock it up. People do it all the time. Not saying it is ok, just saying what people do.

Make it happen. Thanks.
You will never see a convertable on the mid size row. However, you might see one on the Emerald Aisle or Emerald Exec. Sadly, the 5th is a Wed. and I am off on Wed and Thurs. BUT, if you do hold an Emerald Club reservation, you can ask the greeter if it is possible to take a convertable.

I can't believe you are encouraging this behavior. It's one of the reasons you always have cars at National with "lost keys" written on them. The "Savers" found something they liked better and didn't bother to return the keys.

People do lots of things that should be discouranged LOL!

I must have been having a weak moment.
We have lost keys because the drivers often forget to leave them in the cars for one reason and one of the other's because of what you just mentioned. I am not encourging this in the least, just retelling what a lot of people do. Lot's of people select their vehicle and then lock it up and go back and wait for their party, sometimes for hours. That really annoys a bunch of people and there is nothing I can do about it. It is first come first serve. It is highly unlikely that anyone will see a minivan on the full size row in Sept. or Oct.

It is the code for members of the Emerald Club. If you join, then you will get it and you cannot use it unless you are a member, so, that is why no one posts it.

I kind of figured that. Some how the Emerald Club got dropped from the original post mentioning the code.

Still I encourage you to join the Emerald Club. It has many nice benefits. They are covered on the National web site.

Also, you can find a lot of money saving codes and coupons codes on www.mousesavers.com

I figure if the car got to the aisle... then the odds are you had a key recently.... Those are the ones I assume the 'Savers' have gone from A to B to see what they could find (or vice versa) and then decided "its too far to walk back to the first car we 'held', they must have extra keys"



Not sure why they would not realize that if they are holding TWO keys in their hands that might be ALL the keys???/


However, folks remember "reserve what you need" I fly into the two airports used by Disney fans a lot (Orlando in Florida and Orange County in California) Every so often I see a very upset family because there are only 'cars' on the various aisles. (And this is a bigger issue at Orange County because thier space is TINY!!!!!! they don't load lots of stuff on that aisle at any one time.)
