It's complicated of course. There is a balance between spending X amount of money to bring in Y amount of people. If the amount of AP sales are increase the parking demographics to the point where they need more parking, they have to weigh the cost of building more parking and the loss of valuable resort space, against the amount of money that they would make back from the AP sales.And closing off inbound guests to the park is a loss of revenue.
If Disney can save their space for other options they should do that instead of catering to lower revenue generating APs. That's been my point all along. a 300 dollar hotel rooms makes a heck of a lot more money than a 12 dollar parking space.
And then the day there is an angel's game and the lots there are full, people will be coming onto MiceChat complaining that Disney doesn't have a plan D? Parking is finite and they can only do so much.As long as Disneyland and DCA are still operating and not closed off due to capacity issues, Disney should be providing late comers with options. If we are to park at Angel Stadium, that's an option without requiring the spending of a new structure.
Did you try parking at the parking structure at Garden Walk? That's usually pretty empty.Nah, I like going when I feel like it.
And I've listed SEVERAL suggestions as to how that can be fixed.Again, making things up, Mr. Liver. There is a problem with parking. Darkbeer even mentioned how there are fewer spaces now than they were years ago, and it's only going to get fewer.
7)Pay for parking at Garden Walk.
8) Park at The Block and take the bus back to Disneyland.
9) Set up an AP carpooling club and turn four cars into one.
10) Park at Knott's Berry Farm and take the bus from Knott's
Feel free to save yourself the aggravation and not visit the resort until the new parking structure is done in a year and a half. Otherwise just accept that some days parking will be sparse and folks have to plan accordingly.And at the end of the day, Disney does have plans for other parking structures, but they're going to be losing a lot of parking to work on that. Parking WILL be a far worser problem regardless of what time of day I show up.
