Disney resort parking

Weird question here.....
Can people not staying at a certain resort park their car overnight at that resort? Like if we decide to eat at a resort for dinner but leave our car there overnight, is that possible?

No. Generally parking for visitors not staying at a resort is limited to about three hours.

Is there anywhere on the property that would allow for overnight parking for guests not staying at the resorts?

I think DTD has a limited time for parking as well. As far as I know there is no overnight parking for non-resort guests.

Some of the resort parking lots are small, especially the monorail resorts. Effectively your question is asking to potentially take up a spot that would be used by a resort guest and denying them a spot at their home hotel. That's why Disney doesn't allow what you are asking. Nothing worse for resort guest than to not be able to park at their hotel.

So sure, park for your ADR because that's what the lots are for, but move it afterwards.

Just out of curiosity, why would you want to leave your car overnight? Wouldn't it just make more sense to take a cab to the resort for dinner so that you wouldn't need to leave your car there and have to retrieve it the next day?

Anyone else curious where these folks will be while their car is parked overnight? Lol, maybe just me. If you're going to be staying over with friends/family for the night I think you can get a car tag. They gave one to me this past June when my sister, who lives in Florida, came to visit overnight with me at All-Stars. :D

You can pay to valet your car, the'll charge you a flat rate for a 24 hr. period of time but after that, you'll get charged by the hour. Not really sure why anyone who wasn't staying at a particular resort would even want to do that but to each is own, I guess.

No, they start charging for the next day if you are not a resort guest around 6AM or so.

Ahhh, I thought the 24 hr period was for everyone. We valet parked our car this past August and was told the amount we paid was good for a 24 hr. period, we were staying at the BC though. Makes sense then.

Overnight parking is not allowed for non-resort guests.
