I'm looking for DTD info. I really, really want to go shopping at DTD but my husband has been hearing horror stories about the drive to get there and to park. Same with the buses. We discussed going to a nearby resort to eat, leave our car there and then take the boat over but I've been hearing about 3hr parking passes and towed cars. Any tips on how to get there?

I think if you're going to drive there just make sure you avoid the weekends and go early if possible.

Don't worry. Just drink lots and lots and lots of water. And try to avoid standing in direct sunlight at all times.
