If you were visiting a park you can take the Disney transportation. We took the monorail to the TTC then switch monorails and stopped at the GF and the Contemp.
    sounds really nice, thats mt thinking of the visits dan :)

    Ok valet parking IS free for people with the handicapped tag/badge

    Nicked from another board

    Handicapped Parking for the WDW parks/resorts
    To use handicapped parking lots at the parks, have your parking permit visible and show it to each CM (Cast Member) you come to.
    Sometimes, especially at Epcot, the regular handicapped area is full or they have moved Handicapped Parking temporarily, so it is best to go where the CMs direct you, rather than just following the pavement markings that you followed before.
    All of the parks have handicapped parking available. This is the closest parking area to the park entrance, but may still mean a fairly long walk.
    Handicapped parking lots are very large and if you are on the end of a row or the back row, you will have a fairly long walk to the park entry. If you don't have a wheelchair or ECV with you, there are some courtesy wheelchairs available in the handicapped lots. There is no guarantee there will be one available when you get there though.

    The regular parking lots are served by parking lot trams; the handicapped parking lots are not. Parking lot trams are not wheelchair or ECV accessible (folding wheelchair or special needs stroller can be folded and held on the tram, if you are able).
    If you don't have a wheelchair or ECV with you, Disney actually recommends parking in the regular lot and using the parking trams if you are able to step up onto the tram and ride it. Trams drop guests off as close as possible to the park turnstiles.
    Parking lot CMs save spots on the end of the row closest to the tram stops for people with mobility disabilities.
    When going to MK from a WDW resort, the bus is the best way to get there.
    If you are staying at a WDW resort, you will have the least walking by taking the bus when going to MK. The MK bus drops you off at the park, close to the entry turnstiles.
    If you park at MK, you will need to get from the parking area to the Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC). From there, you either take a boat or a monorail. The boat is a longer walk, but is more level. Using the monorail at TTC and MK involves going up a long steep ramp to get to the monorail boarding area at the TTC and down one at MK.
    Handicapped parking lots are patrolled by County police and they will ticket cars not displaying a valid handicapped parking permit.
    Some of the handicapped parking spots are labeled "Van Accessible" or have a wide cross-hatched spot next to them so that a lift or ramp can be put down from the van. If you don't need this feature, please don't park in those spots, if possible. Someone with a ramp or lift van is not able to use a regular handicapped parking spot.
    Valet parking at the deluxe and DVC resorts is free for people with Handicapped Parking permits, although tips are appreciated.
    This is not really a 'perk', it is so that the resort doesn't have to have as much handicapped parking right near the door.

    Well that`s not a very hard multi tasking task if you get my meaning and it`s a known Fact men are hopeless at multi tasking :gy:

    On another note Mick if you`re going to the parks too just leave the car there and jump on the monorail or the boat etc it`s lovely going into all the resorts, just chill out and have a nice beer or two we did that in the summer it was fun people watching in the hotels ;)
