how to request free parking at port everglades:

At the entry to the parking garage or surface lot, pull a parking ticket from the automated machine and get the attention of one of the parking agents in an adjacent exit booth. Advise that parking agent that you would like a disability waiver of parking. The parking agent will call for a parking supervisor to determine if the vehicle qualifies.

Once the supervisor verifies that a waiver is allowable, the driver's name, address and the registration number on the sticker, license plate or hanging tag will be recorded on the parking ticket and signed by the supervisor. The driver will be given the parking ticket and directed to enter the garage.

Upon exit, the parking ticket will be surrendered to the parking attendant with all parking fees waived.
