    Can you camp out inside of the Disney parking lot in your car?

    I've heard MULTIPLE times that people have camped out in their car at Hollywood studios the night before getting the fastpasses for the autographs for the stars during Star Wars weekends. If possible, I'd like to do this, but it sounds completely impossible in my opinion...
    Are these rumors true, or am I right and you can't do that?

    Re: Can you camp out inside of the Disney parking lot in your car?

    I actually can see people getting away with this, but I bet security would get suspicious of someone parking there and never returned to their car. Now, entering the parking lot after the toll booths are closed for the night and staying till day is probably against Disney's wishes and you could possibly be told to leave.

    So yes, you could possibly get away with it, but keep in mind that you are ripping Disney off in parking fees.

    I'm not sure about the car.

    I've spoken to people who slept in line, but we were all onsite guests. I'm guessing the buses must of started at 6, because 6:30 seems to be the popular time to arrive.

    When you arrive early it's not to get in line for autographs once the park opens. You wait and get a wrist band, then when the parks opens they hand out FPs to the people with wrist bands and park admission. The FP works like a FP and guarantees you get an autograph. But the FP is for one person's autograph and you only get one FP total.

    The big question is who do you want to see? Just a shot in the dark but 5:30am to get one from Mark Hamil.

    Mark Hamil is the person I'm wanting to see... I actually am going to be down there the week before, but then I'm going back down now that they have announced that Mark Hamil is going to be there.
    So guess what I'm asking is: How early is it possible for Disney to let me into their parking lot to get in line for a wristband?

    I read Mark Hamil is not giving autographs.
