I just had a quick question in regards to parking now. I think I'm going sunday and prefer to find Gardenwalk parking. Does my premium pass still work there? And where do I park, anywhere in gardenwalk or is there a specific lot or area to go to?
Your premium pass works there. And just as with the other lots they have cm's directing you where to go.
Gardenwalk isn't always open, and it hasn't been lately. I don't think it will be open this Sunday either, not at least until the busy holiday season starts to come into full swing. More likely it will be Pumbaa that opens up and they usually open that at around 9 or 10am and it usually stays open until it fills up which is usually around 2 pm on busy days.
Edit to add -- I just realized today is the start of Christmas for Disneyland. It just might be busy enough for Gardenwalk to be open. Roughly the same times as Pumbaa, perhaps extended by a couple of hours on each end.

Note, your Annual Pass Parking Pass ONLY works at the Anaheim GardenWalk parking structure if Disney is actively parking guests and collecting money/checking AP's.
That means that the Police are on Disney Way directing traffic into the lot, and that the electronic signs are directing you there. Disney only has the right to certain areas of the parking structure, and need a lot of CM's to direct traffic to the specific spots.
If a Disney CM doesn't issue you a parking pass, you will be paying the marked fees to the GardenWalk folks.
Disney normally gets done with using AGW by Noon, as part of the agreement with AGW parking, to allow the Shoppertainment Complex guests to access the parking structure.
Do they have a shuttle to DLR from GW all the time? We might be going there for dinner tonight and may go to the park for a short time to do some shopping. If they do, where do you catch it? Thanks!
Disney provides a free shuttle to any parking lot that they parked that day (with the exception of Simba, which has no service).
If they used AGW, then Coach America will be providing either White Buses or Red Trolleys from the Lion King Shuttle/Tram area. The Coach America stops are in the "Red" zone on the north end of the area, near the Cast Member Shuttle pickup area.
When you get there, you can ask the driver where they are going. If they did not park AGW, but did park Pumbaa, you can take that, and then just cross the street when you get to the Parking Lot.
Or you could take ART, but that is $4 per day (and make sure and buy the ticket from the vending machine in the Lion King Tram area before boarding (near the Bicycle racks), as it is a lot cheaper than the cash fare paid on the shuttles.
