    AAA kiosk closed as of January 1

    When visiting Disneyland on December 27th, I was waiting to take a Disneyland tour in the courtyard next to City Hall that the AAA kiosk is in.
    I had a conversation with the AAA employee in the kiosk and she told me that the kiosk was closing effective January 1, 2006. The kiosk which offered towing, flat tire service and other auto club benefits to members and non-members has been a mainstay of Main Street USA since the 1990's. No reason was given for the closure or who (Disney or AAA) was behind the closure.
    I called Disneyland this morning and they confirmed that it had indeed closed.
    Personally, I think it is unfortunate that another private enterprise that made Main Street USA more "real" has closed.
    Your thoughts?

    Bad News. I would stop there on the way out to ask about traffic, I live in San Diego. The reps would look up sigalert.com on their computers and give me an up to the minute report. A serious loss.

    Sorry to see it go.

    We've been with AAA since 1981.

    Also sad to see it go. It was a convenienct service, and did indeed add to the realism of Main Street.

    I used to do my renewals and stuff there... also get maps.

    Never got around to getting one of those credit card temporary car key things from that kiosk though... now I guess I'll just have to go to the office.

    Wasn't there a rumor not too long ago that the AAA booth was moving into Tomorrowland? I thought I heard something about them moving near Autopia or in the old Disney Radio booth. Maybe, maybe not.

    In any case it is a loss of a good resource in the park.
