I read this in the Unofficial Guide book, but I want to make sure this will actually work (I tried one of their parking tips that backfired on me).
In order to avoid the mob leaving Illuminations, they suggest booking a dinner reservation at one of the Epcot resorts, eating dinner, leaving your car in the resort lot and then walking in and out through the International Gateway to watch Illuminations.
Has anyone staying off property actually tried this? Is it a good idea? Will they tow your car?
If you think it works, if Illuminations started at say, 9:00, what time would you make your dinner reservation?
All thoughts appreciated. We can skip this idea and join the mob if it won't work.
