    Goodbye Timon parking lot

    On July 6th, 2009, the Timon parking lot will close forever.
    for those of you that go in through harbor to park, i would suggest going right to the structure unless you dont mind poarking in either the Pumbba lot,Garden Walk Lot, or the Simba lot.
    The Pumbaa lot and Garden Walk, has shuttles to bring guest to the main entrence, well the Simba lot has nothing for now. A tram will be put in the Simba lot to go to the main entrence, however, that will not be for a while. At least a year from what im hearing.
    This info is accurate as can be since this is coming to you from the RT&P(Resort Transprtation & Parking) department.

    expect to be using the zazu, pongo, and buzz lots a lot this summer and even beyond that. after summer, Pumbba will also be close to start work on the new parking structure.

    So basically an area for real cars is going to be replaced by a land for fake cars...

    ...something about that doesn't sound right.

    In the words of the late Paul Harvey...

    Not all that we call progress, is progress...

    Aside from losing the last link to the old lot, there goes the best alternative to a parking structure that never has been my favorite part of a trip to the DLR...

    Sad, indeed.

    Aw...it is sad...that was my favorite parking lot...

    Parking is going to be HORRIBLE! I have had to park in Pongo/Perdita a couple of times...it is so far from the parks it is ridiculous... and it is a joke for all the families with strollers!! I guess it is going to get worst before it gets better.

    Re: Goodbye Timon parking lot

    Sad? This is great, it should have all been gone in 2001. There's nothing more disgusting then to see huge amounts of land wasted for parking in a dense urban area. I will be so happy when every guest at the DLR can park in a structure.
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    a parking structure will be much more efficient, and the space is going to be used for the new carsland.not housing trolleys

    Yay! Nothing will ever give me that "hooray I'm at Disneyland" feeling like another concrete monstrosity.

    But what do I know. I'm just a getting-older fuddy-duddy that needs to get with the times, right?

    I knew that this was inevitable. But it doesn't mean I have to stand up and cheer for the demise of what I considered to be another last piece of Disneyland's old magic...given up, ironically, for another addition to Pixarland.

    Re: Goodbye Timon parking lot

    ^ a sun-baked stretch of asphalt is something you consider 'magic'?

    Personally, I agree with Uncle Bob...utilize the space for something better, like a new land with one of the greatest E-tickets that will ever be built!
