Exclusive/Private Parking at Parks?

Are there any options for private type parking at the parks for an extra fee or is it strictly general parking only? I ask because a friend of a friend is thinking about coming down whenever I can get my trip scheduled with life constantly getting in the way, but they own a pathetically expensive sports car (like well over $500,000) and is worried about it being dinged with doors from everyday nitwits who don't care.

You can get premium parking closer to the park entrance (or TTC). Or go to one of the hotels and pay for valet parking.
Remember how that worked out for Cameron...

Seriously, without resorting to the "First World Problems" meme, and on the off chance that my disdainful assessment that this might be a troll thread is wrong, maybe they'd be better off renting a Dodge mini-van or a Toyauto at Alamo.

Why is it "pathetically expensive" when you can afford a car of that cost?

Yes, there is premium parking, but they offer no more protection than any other spot.

If they valet at a deluxe resort they will often put cars of that caliber in a special spot, but it is an absolute crapshoot as to whether they will or not. Generally, handing the valet a $20 or better with a polite request of "Can you park it in a nice spot?" will go a long way.

Pay the $50 or so or the semi parking fee, and bring along a car carrier to park it in each day. Go during a slower time period and purposely park as far away from the front as you can and hope no one parks near you? WDW isn't really setup for cars of that caliber.

But how do they function with that car in everyday life? Do they get concerned about this everywhere they go?
I know exactly what you mean. My constant worry about what could happen to the car would negate anything cool about driving a car like that

If the rich guy has his own helicopter, he can land it backstage Epcot behind the Land on the helicopter landing pad and get escorted into the park.

Up until 2014 AAA Diamond Reward members had a parking section for each park...Unsure where it was but, I believe it was $40 to park in it if you were a member..

If he's really that worried about it. Just let me know when you are going. We can meet up and I can drop him off at the park. Then I can take the car out for a spin for the rest of the day. I'll be careful - promise.

He can just text me when he's ready to be picked up. Provided that is - my cell is getting reception from wherever it is I am at that moment, or that my cell battery hasn't died.

But there would be zero chance of a door ding. Zilch.

From what I understand he rarely uses it. Like winter months it's sitting in a garage on a lift and in the warmer months it doesn't get taken out unless it's a beautiful day. He's never taken it on a long trip and thought this would be the prefect opportunity.
