    I dont think we have it over here but if we do I've never used it

    So what's involved? I just give the car over and they'll park it for me and retrieve it when I come out of shopping?

    Do we pay at the end? what about tips?

    You've got the right idea, you drive to the front entrance and the valet will take your keys and give you a slip of paper.

    When you return, you give them the slip of paper and they will get your keys and go and get your car. You normally pay the person at the desk whilst the valet gets your car.

    We always tip the valet normally $5 or $10

    We get free valet parking both because we have the TIW card and I also have a handicap placard. We tip both the valet who parks the car and the one who retrieves it, normally $2-3.

    something else I've never taken advantage of!

    So if we have a meal booked at a disney resort, we dont go to the car park, we just do the drop off bit and show them the TIW card and thats it free?

    With the TIW, you also have to show a receipt from your meal

    We have always gotten a drink at the resort bar just in case.
