In preparation for large crowds visiting “Star Wars” land opening in 2019, Disneyland Resort is adding more parking spaces to its “Toy Story” off-site parking lot.
Disneyland got approval from the Anaheim Planning Commission to add 455 parking spaces to its Toy Story lot off Harbor Boulevard and Convention Way. This will increase the lot to 5,378 parking spaces.
Disneyland will replace 6-foot walls separating the parking area from nearby apartment complexes with a 16-foot-tall, sound wall made of masonry blocks and will landscape with rows of Canary Island Pine trees. Disney plans to add new lighting for the parking lot and a ramp that would connect to its tram depot.
The additional parking spaces are desperately needed in the Disneyland Resort area. During peak season guests unable to get into Disney’s 10,000-spot Mickey and Friends parking structure or the Toy Story lot find themselves with limited options around Disneyland. On rare occasions, the employee parking lot is used and workers have to park at Angel Stadium and be shuttled over to the park.
Looking ahead, plans are currently being proposed for the Disneyland Eastern Gateway project. The project, on the east side of Harbor, includes a seven-story, 6,800-spot parking structure and a pedestrian bridge over Harbor Boulevard to funnel guests straight into the esplanade area between the two theme parks. But the gateway proposal is on hold after neighboring businesses on Harbor Boulevard raised concerns.
