    Gumball Rally Parking

    So, if you are parking at the HOJO at 6 am to get over to ESPN Zone...do we have to walk all the way around the park on Ball?

    I ask because the structure opens 1 hour before the park (7 AM) and the middle pathway that connects Downtown Disney with the bus stops (over where you would enter if walking from HOJO) I thought also didn't open up until 7AM.

    Anyone know anything? I'm going to be sad if I have to use so much energy walking all the way over to ESPN Zone down Ball.

    You should be able to go through the esplanade into DTD

    The esplanade is open all night/morning. There will still be bag checks, but it's open!

    Excellent! Thank you so much!

    I also got the official email stating my concern.

    BTW Monorail Man, I had a dream that you were doing "The Price is Right" game from the last rally and you told someone Adam Sandler-esque "The price is wrong, biotch!"

    Re: Gumball Rally Parking

    I'm trying to remember what time the esplanade opened last year. We had to go over early to buy block out tickets that last couple of years and had to wait for security to open the esplanade. I believe it opened up about 90 minutes before the park opened. It wasn't open just to walk through.

    Re: Gumball Rally Parking

    Does anyone actually know what time the Toy Story Lot opens? I'm wondering if it might still be possible to go this route.

    Okay. I just made a call to guest services. Saturday is a Magic Morning (7am opening time), so all the parking lots, structure and esplanade will be open a 6am!

    I don't know if it will be the same on Saturday, but when we went this morning the Toy Story Lot had a sign saying that it would be closed all day.

    Re: Gumball Rally Parking

    Yea my worry is that we are driving up from SD so is it worth trying to get a spot at HOJO or if Toy Story is open getting a spot there?
