Disney Springs has discontinued its Valet Parking service effective today, August 1, 2023.

Valet parking was available for $20 plus gratuity near the entrance to the Orange Garage, on West Side in front of Cirque du Soleil, and in the Lemon Lot near the World of Disney shop.

Self-parking in the surface parking lots and parking garages is complimentary and remains unchanged.

The parking indicators are just a sensor. They’d all have to be replaced in order to also monitor payments. Just installing self-pay machines would require work to provide the power and data necessary for them to function. The District is trying to endear itself to the other taxpayers in the District. They’re not that bright but adding parking fees isn’t currently even being discussed.

I know I'll regret jumping in, but I have to. I don't think you people understand how "validations" work. Do you really think that garage owners just offer free parking because they appreciate you supporting their neighbors? If only! The businesses generally pay for each validation in an attempt to attract your business. While most of the businesses in DS could probably afford it, I don't see them just biting the bullet if they think there's a chance the customers would pay it directly--which, sadly, they might.

We have a parking garage here that does exactly that.

It would be "funny" to try to charge for this after the resort self parking fiasco...

Guarantees in life are death and taxes.

Toll booths aren’t necessarily a thing in modern lots. Many self parking places you put your license plate number in a machine and pay with a card. The DS decks even know which spaces are free - they can probably monitor if you don’t pay electronically even.

48 years of free parking so far. How much time should we give it?

BTW, it is nothing to do with CFTOD or plans to start charging for standard parking.

Give it time, there are no guarantees on free parking at Springs.

We've been at night when we've visited and sometimes it has been crazy busy with no parking. We started taking Lyft and have really enjoyed it!
