Parking Spot works well, with Parking Spot 2 being great as it's the first exit off east 114 when you take the 121 Tollway to get there, so you don't have to deal with the westbound 114 traffic which is always heavily backed up at the interchange. Only time I've had to wait more than 15 minutes for them to pick me up on return was when they had heavy loads of passengers coming in, otherwise no more than 5-10 minute wait...

Parking at the terminal is relatively cheap for a huge airport (and very convenient - DFW has got to be the most car friendly airport). I used to park off-site (got tired of the hassle with those shuttles) but now just park right at the terminal if the trip is <1 week and take a taxi (not a community shuttle, but a plain old taxi) from my house to the airport if it's longer than a week (~$120 taxi roundtrip fare).

Flying on 12/25, I'd be concerned that the remote parking lots at the airport may fill up with all the holiday traffic. You can call ahead and find out if there is space though.

You can also make a reservation for your car at the Parking Spot and maybe at Park'n'Fly.

Remote lot is the cheapest at $8 uncovered
Express lot is $10 uncovered and $12 covered
Terminal parking is $19 or $18 with toll tag

dfwairport.com - Airport Parking

I've never used any of the 3rd party parking services but they all have web sites.

I've never seen the Remote fill up but the Express does fill up quite often. If the lot does fill up they will give you a coupon to get the Express rate at the terminal lots. So even if the sign says "lot full" stop anyway to get the coupon.

That's good to know. I've seen the remote lot full twice, both at heavy holiday travel times. No idea if it fills up at most holidays or not.
