Blue Zoo dinner/parking at the Dolphin

We have late night dinner reservation during our trip and wondering if, since you have to pay for parking anyway, is it possible to park at The Dolphin in the morning and spend the day at Epcot? It just seems easier than going to Epcot, getting in our car and driving to The Dolphin for dinner.

No, I wouldn't think this possible, as they issue parking passes to leave in the front window of the car to show you are a guest. The parking charge is added to guest's hotel bill, and therefore not collected at any gates, so you couldn't pay to park unless you are a guest. As with any resort on the WDW campus, you can probably get 3 hours only of free parking.

I don't see why you can't if you want. Self parking for non guests is $16 per exit. You may want to call the restaurant and ask about validation though. And whether it applies for self parking or valet or either and if it would be voided if you've been parked there since morning
