    I Wonder How Much Disney Makes Off Of Parking Per Day

    So, I was wondering today with my Mom and Dad how much Disney makes off of the parking lot per day. 10 bucks per car, numerous parking spaces, it must be some profit! So does anybody here on this site know much they make per day:

    300,000?

    500,000?

    A Million?

    I would love to hear an accurate answer! This has been buggin' me for awhile now!

    Are you looking for revenue or profit?

    Isn't that the same thing? Well I guess profit from the guests. I just want to know how much they make on an average day from the guests (consider ALL the cars gave ten bucks).

    Consider it a packed day, all of the levels are filled to the max with cars- it cannot hold anymore cars.

    Re: I Wonder How Much Disney Makes Off Of Parking Per Day

    From Wikipedia:
    Most of the resort's parking today is handled by the six-level "Mickey and Friends" parking garage. With six levels and 10,250 parking spaces,
    Okay, let's do the math...
    10250 x $10 = $102,500.00

    And...there ya go!

    No, revenue is what you take in. profit is what you have left of revenue after paying expenses.

    This isn't a straight shot question.
    There the first off the number of spaces available. But this is purely theorhetical as APs with Parking Passes visit. Then there is the cost of paying staff. Electricity has to be paid for. I'd also bet the trams fall under parking and the costs of operating them has to be factored in: oil, CNG, tires, maintainence. Then of course every night the lots have to be cleaned. Many factors need to be taken into account.

    Good point. Sorry about the mix-up of revenue and profit.

    Re: I Wonder How Much Disney Makes Off Of Parking Per Day

    Disney can muck up profit easily enough with the associated overhead of running the parking structure.
    Even the revenue is questionable given that some AP's have paid for it on their AP( and they did pay fpr parking). But then you haver people such as myself, who have paid for parking with my PAP, but literally never use it since my car stays at the hotel when I visit Anaheim.
    I think the OP was trying to determine the amount of revenue that the parking structure brings in when every spot is paid for on the day of use. If that's the question, then $102,500.00 is the correct answer.

    Re: I Wonder How Much Disney Makes Off Of Parking Per Day

    Well, let's say that they have 50 people working in the parking system.

    One person works 8 hours
    Average wage is probably around 8 dollars per hour.

    50 x 8 x 8 = $3200.

    There is also the costs of diesel. Throw a thousand dollars in.

    So costs are about $4200. I am sure that is in the ball park. If you have different estimates about the number who works with parking, then just plug in the new numbers.

    I know it doesn't seem like enough, but that's what the math says. Get out your calculator and try it!

    Well, that's the income of the M&F parking structure only. So, if you add in about 1,000 more spaces from the Lion King lots, then it's $10,000 on top of that.

    Your numbers don't even begin to cover costs. The trams have to be figured into the costs of the parking structure since they serve the parking structure. That includes the design, construction, maintenace and insurance of the trams. Let's not forget the origianl cost to build the parking structure and the amount of money necessary to insure it, clean it, maintain it, maintain the maintenace vehicles, pay for the maintenance staff to repair the trams and maintenence vehicles that service the parking structure, chemicals for cleaning all that concrete.... the list goes on and on and on....

    And what cracks me up is they make you walk all the way back to your car with no moving walkway or anything (Refering to when you are on the actual level). Plus they have no security on the top levels- at least when I was there! And they still charge you ten bucks!
