    Random Resort Gate/Pathway?

    Not sure if the pic is big enough, but I've always wondered what this pathway was for? Obviously it's blocked off now, but it looked like you were meant to walk under the sign/arch. It's on the street behind CA Adventure behind Cars Land.... Was this meant to go somewhere?

    I think that was the pedestrian entrance on Katella that went into the Timon lot/trams, now Carsland. I'm sure someone knows for sure though.

    If it is directly across from the convention center, then that is exactly what that is.

    Interesting that they would remodel a sign that was over an unused entrance...

    Apparently they marked it to be demolished, but the guy doing the work was color-blind...

    Re: Random Resort Gate/Pathway?

    There has been a gate there for decades, for people walking in from the Anaheim Convention Center or the hotels on Katella and Harbor - In the early years there was a full-on vehicle entrance and parking toll plaza there to augment the main one off Harbor (and as a backup), but it morphed down to a pedestrian gate. The parking lot tram would stop close by, and there was a crosswalk on Katella.

    And there used to be dozen little Motels clustered along the south edge of the old Disneyland Parking Lot, and on the other side that are now Convention Center parking, that used that gate for access. Disney bought the properties up over the years as they became available.

    Now they expect everyone to take the ART Resort Buses to and from the Parks.

    Check it out. Scroll about half way down. Just a few pics below the "LOT CLOSED" PIC.

    Ok, Planetsix, you have me confused(which isn't too hard to do): It is a pathway, it was designed and engineered, it has a purpose(although one not commonly known) so why call it "random"? I just don't see the randomness of it since it was planned and executed? Thanks.

    Sorry, should've used another fitting describing word. I knew obviously that it was there for a reason, but everytime I drove by it, not knowing the purpose, I always thought it looked like a random location for a pathway with a DL sign. Now, I know it's purpose which doesn't make it so random.

    That's exactly what is is. It used to serve as the pedestrian entrance on Katella Ave to Timon lot facing the Anaheim Convention Center. The gate was there for several decades. Since that lot is long gone, the entrance is no longer in service.
