    That's normal, right? Everyone has ridden in the trunk of a car at least once in their life, right?

    I was thinking more along the lines of renting a car-hauling truck and loading it with guests' cars. Along the lines of the old Value Resorts Refrigerator Share.

    LOL I forgot about this as well. I read this post just after thinking about a MM share.

    Yes, this was a big thing. Family #1 would use the fridge and when they checked out, they would pass it to family #2.

    Interesting - thanks for writing that up. Seems to make sense to me, but with WDW I could see them still also raise prices 14%.

    That seems like a rather elaborate shell game for not a lot of gain. However, I have seen corporations do more for less just to make their bottom line look that teeny bit better so it is certainly not beyond the realm of possibilities.

    I'm not sure it's terribly elaborate, nor a shell game. With the hotel/lodging industry increasingly obfuscating actual room rates with add-on charges like parking and resort fees, there's a well-established model both for WDW to follow and for consumers to be familiar with. In every case it's a strategy to increase revenue.

    When you're charging the premium disney does in exchange for the "disney resort experience" then it would take elephant balls to then add a resort fee on top of that. Parking charges are a much lower hanging fruit to grab for.

    I’m not sure that people who (willingly?) pay outrageous Disney resort tariffs would expect that there wouldn’tbe a resort fees that are charged at just about every resort across the country.

    Exactly. The more expensive a property, the more things tend to be charged for a la carte on top of room rates.

    If you try to nickel and dime people to death who are already paying a small fortune to stay in your resort you should expect to turn people off. "The room is 600 bucks a night but we're gonna charge you an extra 20 bucks for stuff you're already paying for" Not a good look. Parking is a little easier to justify since so many don't use it.

    Great - Just in time for me to change my trip approach from fewer but longer stays to more frequent but shorter stays.

    Didn't get a chance to read this entire thread yet, but I thought our new experience was noteworthy:

    We stayed in AKL April 6-13 (booked before March). We rented a car and visited many other resorts (twice we abused Beach Club to hop over to Epcot IG later in the day, and also had a bunch of resort ADRs).

    It seems the lot attendants weren't interested in looking at ADRs anymore; the one and only verification they cared about was if we were staying at a WDW resort. Guess that is the new litmus test?

    If you rent a car while you're in WDW, add that daily parking fee to the rental cost. Ouch.

    We're doing a half WDW, half Vero Beach DVC trip in August. I decided to pick up the rental at the Dolphin on the day we leave WDW for VB.

    Members will not be charged for standard overnight self-parking when staying at a DVC Deluxe Villa, regardless of whether they use vacation points or another form of payment. Members also will not be charged to park when using vacation points to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    There is no *additional* fee to DVC members for parking at DVC resorts, because our annual dues pay for the parking lot maintenance and upkeep (i.e., members own the lots and pay the people who staff them).

    Yes the DVC exemption has been in effect since they added resort parking fees and is unlikely to go away

    I'm sure this has been answered somewhere here, but do cabin guests pay for parking?
