New Disneyland Parking Structure – Construction Update – The 6,500-space parking complex project, announced last year is well underway. We are watching the progress and welcome the addition of more parking for the Happiest Place on Earth. The structure is to include a pedestrian bridge over Magic Way! The construction of additional parking is just part of an expansion project that will bring a new hotel and the much-anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy Edge.
The building is taking shape. It is scheduled to open next year, along with the Star Wars themed land. The multi-story deck is located next to the Mickey & Friends. It replaces the Pinnoccio flat parking lot. A number of changes are in process for this project – Downtown Disney, is undergoing some of its own alterations. New shops and the relocation of the AMC Theater complex. The theater is moving to Garden Walk on Disneyland Drive.
The addition of a pedestrian bridge, to connect the new parking complex with Downtown Disney is sure to be popular. The walkway will provide safe passage over Disney Way, eliminating crossing a busy thoroughfare. Park visitors using the new bridge traverse through Downtown Disney District as they make their way to the parks main entrance.
The Project, expected to enhance guests experience, by providing additional access lanes and much-needed parking space. The tram boarding area, slated for reconfiguration is to ease transportation woes for visitors as well. We look forward to completion sometime in 2019.
