    Personally I wouldn`t do it. :nono:
    There is always the [albeit slight] chance that you may be asked to also show your id at the ticket booth and this could be quite an embarrassment if this were to happen.

    To be honest I'm quite happy paying $14 for 12 hours of security patrolled parking. I'd pay a heck of a lot more than that at my local town centre. It's just something else I factor into the cost of the holiday. :shrug:

    That is not cool. The parking at DTD is AWFUL! I just want to go in and shop and can never find a place.

    me to, never ever crossed my mind to park at DTD, but what a nightmare that would be everyday, id rather pay $14 it isnt that much when you convert it to £'s as you say you pay more to park in the town centres here

    Personally I think they should turn the parking at DTD into pay parking also. Of course it would have the same benefits as on site parking, i.e. free for resort guests and AP holders. If you were truly there to shop they could grant up to 3 or 4 hours of free parking with proof of purchase.

    Hiring out the AP?! :eek: I can't imagine that being a good idea at all, for either the AP owner or the person paying to use it for parking.

    That is clearly a misuse of the pass. The pass states on it that it is not transferable, so even lending it to someone to allow them to park (never mind charging the person to use it) is clearly against the regulations of the pass.

    All it will take is one person to try and use that AP to gain entry to the park (and you KNOW someone will try) and the AP will be confiscated and the original purchaser of it may not be able to ever purchase another AP.

    considering how much you figure into your costs for a trip especially from the UK a few more bucks wont hurt imo

    I agree guys. I think it is abuse of your pass and I think it's risky too. I wouldn't dare take the chance as I would probably be the one to be asked for id. We've decided to have a parking kitty set apart from our spending money at least knowing the costs before we go we can budget for it.

    Once again thanks for the advice.
