    I would agree if they can get the city council to approve Trams on parts of the streets surrounding the Resort.

    Not quite what I meant. The Toy Story lot is a temporary fix until a more permanent solution can be built.

We were ready to leave the parks at about 8:00 p.m. that evening; same situation, no waiting to board the buses. I say this is much more convenient than packing in line like sardines for the Mickey and Friends trams. If this helps with that craziness, then I say that this is a GREAT idea on Disney's part. Anyone with overly stimulated, overly tired kids at the end of a long day at the parks, knows what it's like to wait in those crazy lines for the trams: It's not fun. The bus ride to the parking lot was pleasant, and like I said, we didn't have to wait for any buses.
    Wow, you showed up much earlier than I did and had to park there? My family & I got to DL about 4ish? We were redirected from M&F all the way to this Toy Story Lot. We ended up walking on Harbor because there was a long line for the buses. Luckily at the end of the night, the buses were just arriving so we quickly got on one.

    Re: new toy story parking lot opens the 19th

    We parked there for the first time on Monday at about 3 PM. I was pleasantly surprised with how efficient everything was. There was a bus boarding, with three more waiting behind it. We got on the bus, the driver was friendly and we arrived at the ex- Lion King load area in about 10 minutes. It did seem much more convenient than M&Fs.

    Upon returning, there were about 10 buses waiting in line for quick boarding/departure. I hope this efficiency keeps up, but I think after a while they will get a handle of when there is demand and cut some buses here and there.

    The entire situation was very much like riding WDW buses, but a much quicker ride. They need to make them a little more Disney on the inside if they will be using them for a while.

    All I have to say is after working in this lot and seeing how much better everything is, when I'm a guest, I'm going to this lot.

    I was sighing over the misunderstanding... I thought another user meant the "Buses" were temporary -- and kinda carried it from there. The sigh was simply my way of saying "my bad" ... which my nephew tells me I am *far* to old to be saying.

    Re: new toy story parking lot opens the 19th

    On a busy Spring Break, Friday afternoon (April 9), I tried out the Toy Story Parking Lot for the first time. Approaching the lot from the south on Harbor Blvd, I turned right into the entrance at 12:25pm. About half of the parking booths had a single car in line, so it was easy to find an empty lane with no wait. Things were looking good.

    But I was directed to park in Woody 3A, which is about as far away from the bus loading zone as any spot in the lot. Still, when I made it to the buses, I walked right onto a bus. There were plenty of buses. No waiting.

    The bus dropped us off in the old Timon tram loading zone at 12:42pm. A total of 17 minutes from when I turned into the entrance of the Toy Story Lot, until drop off. I was very impressed. Just a guess, but this was probably faster than parking at the M&F structure, waiting for a tram and taking that tram in at the same time this day.

    In the evening, I headed back to the Toy Story buses after the Electrical Parade at DCA. There was a bit of a line at the bus loading zone, but the CMs kept it moving quickly, with plenty of buses waiting for all of us tired guests. I got in line at 9:38pm and was back in my car at 9:57pm. The return trip timed at 19 minutes. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and probably compared very favorably to parking at the M&F structure on that busy day.
