    Re: Where do you park??

    The structure. Every time. It's just so much more convenient coming from the valley. And forget the tram. I walk. Not a hike like some have stated. It's very short and nice to be away from the crowds at the end of the night when everyone is crowding for the trams.

    Toy Story parking lot. I hate that long line outside the parking structure.

    Re: Where do you park??

    The only place I will park is the Toy Story Lot. Once we experienced the ease of getting on the bus both to and from DL, we were hooked. Have converted many friends as well who don't even consider M&F as an option anymore.

    Re: Where do you park??

    took the bus from M&F once, didnt like it at all. I much prefer the tram from M&F. We take harbor from the 5N then go to the far right lane to enter the structure. It is consistently the best line.

    We usually get there around 30 minutes to an hour after opening and leave by 1 or 2 so we never have a wait on the tram. Very rarely we will come back at night and stay until close. We might have to wait for one tram to pass but can almost always get on the second. It can help to go to the furthest tram waiting area.

    Re: Where do you park??

    Whatever hotel we're staying at....latest was Candy Cane Inn (then take their shuttle to/from), before that was Best Western Stovall's (and then WALK). Like a PP, I feel no magic in parting with $15 to park. Like another PP, I also used to park where the turnstiles to DCA are now.

    I park at M&F and just walk to the resort, unless i'm staying for less that 3 hours then i just park at DTD. If there is a special event, then TS.

I'm done with Disney parking.
    They need Mass Transit 2 the Disneyland Resort, but that's probably it's own other thread.

    Did you ever play "There's my car!" from the Monorail?

    We are 3 1/2 hours away and hotel it, usually on site if we can and leave the car in the hotel lot. Only once have I been in the parking structure and taken the tram to the gates.

    Re: Where do you park??

    We come from the North, so the easiest is the M&F. The carpool lane practically has it's own entrance. With 3 small kids still of stroller age, we have a double and single B.O.B. Add the stuff we take to make our day in the park smooth, there is NO WAY I am breaking those things down to get on a bus (or tram) so we always walk. M&F is closer walking, especially because we like to shop in in Downtown Disney a bit after leaving the park.

    If for some reason we are not comming from the North, I will always drive up and around in order to park in the structure. One time we ended up in Timone and Pumba when my kids were smaller, and they thought we had lied to them and were not at Disneyland because we had not gone into the structure.

    I just wish there was more than 2 elevators at M&F. I mean COME ON, a structure that holds 10,000+ cars many of which bring small children in strollers, and you have 2 elevators.

    And I remember as a kid playing "Where is my car" from the monorail too!!

    This. The walk isn't very long at all.

    Re: Where do you park??

    The one time I decided to park in the Toy Story lot it took me nearly an hour from the time I parked to the time I arrived at the security tents. Such a mistake. The buses don't hold nearly as many people as they should and they take a while in between, plus they have to navigate through traffic. I always always park in Sticky and Friends because it's a quick exit off the Ball Road exit. It's like the "back way" and the trams are continuous and efficient or it's just a quick walk to the parks. Last time though we were redirected to whatever the lot is next to Paradise Pier and that was a nice little walk, not too bad at all.

    Wasn't that great? I have vivid memories of that. Just park. And walk 20 or so feet and boom! Inside of the park. *sigh* (of course you'd have to get there pretty early for that)
