Driving/Parking at Poly for Ohana?

Being creatures of habit we'll probably do Ohana during our next stay, but I'm not thrilled with the idea of parking in the MK lot and getting to poly that way, but I'm wondering if we can just drive directly there and park. I'd be willing to pay the valet fee to simplify things, is this do-able?

It's perfectly fine to park at the Poly for your meal at 'Ohana, and there would be no charge for using the self-park lot. What you shouldn't do is park at the Poly, eat, and head off to a theme park. In that case, either use valet parking or leave your vehicle at the TTC. Enjoy!

In the past when we have driven to one of the deluxes for a restaurant reservation, if we self-parked, we got a thing to put in the window that gave us 3 hours to be parked there. Don't know if that's still true.

If you valet, there doesn't seem to be that time-limt as far as I know.

But there is certainly no problem overall with driving to the hote & parking there to eat at one of their restaurants.

As the PP's have said, yes you can drive directly to the Poly and park there while you eat at 'Ohana. You can use either self parking (free) or Valet.

Parking is a breeze you have to go thru MK gate (stay on the right side), go straight, and make left at the light. You will enter Poly on the right, check at the guard station, then either drop your family at the check in doors and park, or everyone park and walk. The lot is mostly full, but you should find a spot eventually.
