We’ve all heard that it’s better to give than to receive. I wholeheartedly agree. But sometimes, especially around the holidays, it’s nice to get something from your “wish list.” I must have been good this year, because one of the things I’ve been hoping for is coming soon: valet parking at Downtown Disney!
Here just in time for the holiday shopping season, valet parking will be available at Downtown Disney West Side starting today.
Jim Forrester, Operations Manager for Downtown Disney, tells me that guests have expressed an interest in valet parking for a while, and the holidays seemed like the perfect time to introduce this new parking option.
Interested in trying it out? Here’s what you need to know:
- The service is offered 4 p.m. – 2 a.m. daily.
- Valet parking can be accessed via Entrance 4 at Downtown Disney West Side.
- The cost is $15 per vehicle and gratuity is accepted.
- When you’re ready to pick up your car, you can check in at the valet booth or text a designated number for speedy retrieval.
The service is scheduled to run through January 1, 2014. As always, parking in our regular lots will continue to be complimentary.
For guests taking in a performance of La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil, enjoying a concert at House of Blues, or indulging in a meal at one of our awesome West Side restaurants, the drop-off and pick-up location will be especially convenient. (Plus, it’s close to the West Side boat dock, which offers efficient service to the Marketplace. Bonus!) As for me, I know I’ll be doing a lot of Christmas shopping at Downtown Disney, and I love that my car will be waiting for me when I’m wrapping up at the West Side, loaded with bags!
What about you … will you be checking off your holiday gift list here, too? If so, do you think you’ll give the new valet parking service a try?
