Parking Charges at WDWWalt Disney World: At what time each evening do the parks stop charging for parking?
From Donna McKayDoes anyone know what time the Walt Disney parks stop charging for parking? I know I've entered the parks later in the evening and not been charged in the past. I have to pick up my tickets from Guest relations and want to do it the night we arrive to save having to waste time doing that on a day we're actually visiting the parks. Since I won't be entering the park that night I'm keen to avoid the parking charge if I can!

From Tony DudaDom, you don't drive so you don't know about this.

The best bet is at Hollywood Studios about an hour before park closing on nights without Fantasmic. I've driven in even earlier than that through the front entrance and the attendants were gone.
From Skipper AdamDom, that's not what she asked.

I think it is a safe bet for sure after 6 or 7. I think it depends on how late the park is open, how many cars are coming in etc. so there isn't an exact time.
There is a guest relations at Down Town Disney. In fact, that's where the head GR offices are, if you can take care of your business there.
From Anthony MurphyFascinating question!

I will say that the parking is transferable from park to park (park at EPCOT, drive to DHS, pay once).
While this is very subjective, the parking rate at Disney is not all that terrible. In fact, it could be far worse
From Donna McKayThanks everyone! I agree that the parking rate isn't too bad...I just want to be "tight" and avoid paying it for a 10 minute trip to pick up tickets! :) That $14 can be used for more interesting things....like Mickey ice cream bars...yum!

I didn't know about the Downtown Disney guest relations. Since we are staying about 2 minutes from there, I will make that my first stop!
Thanks for your help!
From Skipper AdamYes, the Guest Relations is hidden in The Marketplace, you will probably have to ask around to find it.
