Disney Guests Flock to Park As Removed Offering Returns Years Later

One of the best things about Disney is if you park really far from the main gate of your theme park, they will have a tram to bring you to the front of the Park so that you don’t have to waste your feet on a walk that doesn’t include a Mickey pretzel! After Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort reopened, we saw the idea of trams disappear, and the long walk from Simba’s lot became the new norm.

Then, magic happened! At Walt Disney World, trams were announced to return to Magic Kingdom and EPCOT (only those using the Ticket and Transportation Center parking, however). Although not all the Parks have them, the TTC walk to the monorail is often very long, so it made sense to see the trams return there first.

Then, Disneyland Resort confirmed on its website that trams would be returning on Wednesday, February 23 with transportation from the Mickey & Friends and Pixar Pals parking structures to the Main Entrance between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure. This brings us to today, when Guests are finally riding the tram again! 

Disneyland Resort’s official website reads:

Tram service at the Disneyland Resort will resume operations on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, providing Guests with transportation from the Mickey & Friends and Pixar Pals parking structures to the Main Entrance Esplanade between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Until that date, you can use a dedicated walkway from these parking structures to the parks. You may also park in the Toy Story Parking Area and utilize bus transportation or walk to the parks via Harbor Boulevard.

Disneyland also offers complimentary bus transportation from Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure, and the Toy Story Parking Area. Buses operate until approximately one hour after the last theme park closes. Guests may also walk to the parks via Harbor Boulevard.

We can see that crowds have flocked to Disneyland to ride the trams after two years of not seeing them in action. YouTuber Fresh Baked! (@FrshBakedDisney) posted an exciting photo seeing the trams once again on Twitter.

I just ride the Disneyland Tram for the first time in over 2 years. It was magic.

Another Guest, Crimsonrambler (@crimsonrambler) posted a photo riding a fully loaded tram.

Although long lines were seen earlier when the Parks opened, both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure are both boasting average wait times. We will likely see wait times increase as April and May roll around with the Main Street Electrical Parade, Disneyland Forever, World of Color, and Fantasmic! all set to return in a few short months.

Plus, there is so much to see and do at Disney California Adventure Park! Guests can enjoy Buena Vista Street as they walk the roads Walt had in Hollywood, enjoy a hand-dipped corn dog at Award Wieners, Head to Cars Land to enjoy the neon signage and Radiator Springs Racers, check out the new Marvel-themed land in Avengers Campus, where they can meet Spider-Man, Loki, Ant-Man, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, and so many more characters. And of course, you have to ride WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure and Guardians of the Galaxy: MISSION BREAKOUT. Rock on the Silly Symphony Swings as well, and go catch Jack Jack on Incredicoaster! The list of rides and attractions never ends!
