Queues are something that Guests are used to at the Disney Parks. It starts the minute you get to the parking lot, especially on an elevated crowd level day. At the Disneyland Resort, the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure which now has the Pixar Pals Parking Structure adjacent to it, is one of the most popular parking structures for Guests to park at when visiting the theme parks.
Those who are Signature and Signature Plus Annual Passholders are allowed free parking in designated lots like those above along with the Toy Story Parking Lot. On busy and hot summer days, all Guests are looking for some shady relief for their cars at the structures though, hence the long queues just to park your vehicle.
Parking Structure Construction Permit
It looks like there is some good things coming in the way of the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure though. A permit as been filed to start construction at the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure to install a new toll both and lane. Guests are going to find some comfort in the alleviation of the wait times because less time spent parking the car means more time enjoying the parks!
“Mickey and Friends Structure – Tenant Improvement: Construct new toll booth island to install new sq ft prefabricated toll booth. Demo portion of existing curb to provide access to new lane. Restripe parking stalls. Install new rolling gate. All work to remain on first level of parking structure.”
Construction Around the Resorts to Prep For Reopening
Even though there has been no announcement yet as to when the reopening will be for Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure, Disneyland Hotel, Grand Californian Resort and Spa, or Paradise Pier Hotel, there is still projects that continue on.
As California is actively working on guidelines for the reopening of theme parks, refurbishments have been spotted from inside the parks on buildings on Main Street U.S.A. Cast Members were working on the installation of plexiglass at the entrance turnstile for both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure over the past few months. As the Disneyland Resort prepares to welcome back Guests, they are starting to care for the greenery around the hotels as well, or as Disney calls it, “the green carpet.”
All this hard work is going to benefit the overall Guest experience, and if you’re looking for some help in planning your Disneyland trip when the rest of the resort reopens, talk to an expert at Academy Travel. Reach out to them here!
