Transportation question

We are going to eat at the Cape May Clam Bake one evening. Is it possible to drive and park at the motel, then walk over to Epcot for Illuminations, then go back through the International Gateway and take our car back to our motel?

How long can we leave it parked at a motel if we are planing to eat there?

Thanks!

1- Yes. (Although, I've never heard Beach Club called a "motel" before. )

2- Generally, 3 Hours.
If you want to leave your car there longer, it would be prudent to valet park it.

When you drive to a motel or resort for a meal or to otherwise visit then you should drive away when you leave so others wishing to go there have parking spaces.

Depending on anticipated crowds the parking guard may tell you up front that you may park for 3 hours.

In an effort to garner bigger tips, valets usually won't insist you claim your car within 3 hours.

You can park at Hollywood Studios and take the boat over to Beach Club.

Ideally, in the future, there should be a good section of the parking lot blocked off where you need a room key for that specific resort to get in.

Thanks for the replies!

I call the All Stars "resorts" but the Polynesian a motel. I have no idea why. It should be the opposite! But you know where I am talking about.

We usually visit during the slow times of year so I see lots of empty parking lots. I wouldn't take up spaces if there were parking lot vultures circling!

I think we will just park at Epcot and make our way around to the buffet. We'll need to burn off those calories anyway!

Thanks!
