    Sunday Morning, May 17th - Parking SUCKS! at the Disneyland Resort

    OK, it isn't even "Summer" yet, but we are already seeing a "melt-down" of the available parking.

    Coming from the South to Disneyland, get off at Disney Way, head to Timon, and be told to turn around, and go park at Anaheim GardenWalk. (around 10:30 AM this morning)

    So many folks, that traffic was backed up to Harbor!

    So some folks said, hey, lets check out the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure instead... Well, that was the WORST choice, as the traffic was backed up on Ball PAST Harbor. And of course, made the Southbound traffic from LA also have much longer waits to enter the structure.

    So you had about an 1 hour period between arrival and getting to security if you opted for the Parking structure.

    Anaheim GardenWalk, closer to 45 minutes after parking, and taking the Shuttle Bus to the Security check area.

    Plan in advance, get there early and leave lots of time if you plan to meet others!

    Re: Sunday Morning, May 17th - Parking SUCKS! at the Disneyland Resort

    If I worked at the sportsbook at a Las Vegas casino, I'd be wondering where to set the "over/under" number regarding "parking sucks" threads appearing here between now and Labor Day.

    I'm thinking 45.

    Suggestions are welcome, though.

    Um, nothing new. We know that the resort is cramped for parking. A thread every week really don't need to be started about it, IMHO.

    yeah, they don't count. they are blocked every weekend.

    My daughter just took advantage of the payment plan and then promptly complained about how busy the park was and how disney should not whore tickets out. I gently reminded her she took advantage of their whorish ways just like everyone else....

    We arrived at the Park this morning a little after 9am and no problems with the Mickey and Friends Parking. There was a short line inside the building and we parked on the second floor. Get there early and you won't have any Parking Problems. Go later and suffer the consequences.

    There was also the California Dental Association convrntion going on. So this might have contributed to things being bad.
