    They were giving free parking in the early afternoon on Bats Day last month, too. Who knows why.

    Or maybe it is just some of the "Million Dreams" they are giving out this year. FREE PARKING!! WHOO HOO!

    Maybe since they are now charging $11, they ran out of ones. What a pain to have to give $9 back to everyone who hands the CM a $20!

    i agree about not knowing in advance which lanes are open!

    They do this later in the day - but 1pm does seem a bit early.

    Pretty much. My biggest pet peeve is that the marquees with the GREEN or RED lights to inform you if the booth is open are directly above the booths and not visible from your vehicle until you are practically at the booths. This is VERY frustrating when the line gets to be 5 cars or more longer as there is no way to know which booths are open so everyone spreads out and then ends up merging back into the few lanes that are open. It's so annoying. They should have them further back that way less people try to go around the line and end up merging back into it.

    I've noticed that when coming into the park late, as well. (Well, before I started parking at K-Lot all the time, haha.) I think it's because they assume that people who aren't coming into the park until mid-afternoon or later probably are APs or CMs who don't have to pay for parking, and the income that they lose by giving free parking to those who weren't entitled to it is offset by the money they save in not having to staff the booths.

    The only time they usually do this is in the few hours up to closing. But good for those who don't have AP's I guess.

    Maybe they made enough $11 that day.

    That happened to us a few weeks ago too. A few months ago we got to the resort at about 3pm and there weren't even any attendants at any of the booths. It was just open with cones guiding us to the roof.

    Why the free parking? This is a bit strange?!

    A good chunk of the crowds this weekend consisted of participants in the Half-Marathon events, and I think they didn't park in the structure. Don't know where they did park...

    started a topic I found this a little odd...

    I found this a little odd...

    Saturday September 16th...
    I got to the park and was going to the parking booth guy and as i'm pulling out my pass from my purse and rolling down the window, the guy waves us through and says "no charge." Now I found that weird...and I thought, well maybe he saw me pulling out my pass and assumed that I had parking on it. But that means I still didn't get my "where did you park?" tag. That ended up being fine because... We get sent up to level 2-Mickey and there's like nooobody in it! Now keep in mind.. it's exactly 1 o-clock! We parked in the third spot right in front of the escalators in the second row(1st full row) at 1 o-clock in the afternoon...
    Here's a pic of me driving into the 2nd row...

    Here's a pic after I parked in the 3rd spot...

    I find the desertion very odd... However...the inside and driving around the park wasn't particularly uncrowded...
