    Early Morning Access Parking Lot Near Disneyland?

    I'm planning on driving up from San Diego on Tuesday. It's a ninety-minute drive, so I have to leave by 5:30 AM at the latest to comfortably beat rush hour (and I'd prefer to leave a little earlier; I'm a morning person). Obviously, the official lots won't be accessible until about 9 AM. I'd like to park somewhere (paid, for the day) within 1/2 mile or so, have breakfast at Denny's, IHOP, or the like, then head over to Disney on foot and hang out in line early with my books (it's a solo trip).

    Let me emphasize that I am absolutely willing to pay for parking. I would prefer not to pay much more than the $15 I would normally pay. I am looking for a lot/garage with early morning access where I can leave my car until I drive home (as late as 9 PM). I do not want to have to move my car. I am not worried about security.

    Any thoughts?

    Why don't you park at Denny's or Ihop which are very close to the DLR entrance, eat walk around then walk back at 8:30 and move your car to M&F?

    That Fairfield Inn tip sounds good! If I'm feeling flush, Downtown Disney would be fine, but it (and the restaurant options) mean I would still have to move the car. $30 isn't crazy for the day (at Downtown), but at double the rate, it's hard to stomach. I prefer to blow my budget on dining and pins.

    (update)
    That Fairfield Inn tip was perfect! I called and checked with their front desk and valet department; they confirmed that they expect low business and could accommodate me, and they gave me instructions!


    But thanks to everyone who helped. As an anxious individual, I like to be meticulous when I do anything solo.

    Why don't we all do this? It seems like about the same amount of walking without the wait of the tram ride.
