We're planning a trip for Feb '08, a full eight years since our last WDW vacation! On our last two trips (1999 and 2000), we stayed onsite both times. After the first trip (stayed at the Contemporary) we decided to rent a car for the next trip because of the frustrations with the Disney transportation. We really enjoyed our second trip more (stayed at Wilderness Lodge) - no waiting for monorails, buses or boats, except the ferries from WL to MK, which was obviously more convenient that driving. I'd estimate we saved an average of 45 minutes a day. So my question is, is it still easy to have a car at WDW? Back in 2000, theme park parking was free for resort guests, and resort self-park was also free. Is this still the case? Are there still preferred parking spots for AAA members? BTW, we're thinking of WL again, or maybe BC. Thanks so much for any insight into this!
