    Well ... for those not stuck on the PeopleMover type contraption they could walk to the parking structure. But, I still don't like the idea ... keep the trams.

    True

    I've had to wait 20-30 minutes many times, and w/ small children its not easy. When they operate all the trams to its full capacity, it really is a high capacity transportation system, but they typicall only run at 40-50 percent capacity most of the day.

    I think this is a great idea - however, what about the stroller issue? Sometimes it's difficult to fold them up or unfold them or whatever. That could pose an issue. Strollers aside, I think this is a great idea.

    Oh that's right, they put DCA there.

    Excellent. I love Disneyland, but it's a big deal when it takes you 35 minutes to get from your car to the front gates. It was nice when you could park in a parking lot and walk to the front gates in 6 minutes or less.

    Re: How about replacing the parking lot trams with the Peoplemover?

    Can you imagine the VAST amount of peoplemovers it would take to move people out of the park efficiently? I was little when the peoplemovers left, but if I remember correctly, I believe they held less than 5 right? Imagine the bottleneck it would create if everyone wanted to use the peoplemover to get to the parking lot after the fireworks! The trams also travel considerably faster than the peoplemover. At the end of the night, people are ready to get home.

    Not practical even in the slightest...

    Awwwww, the good 'ol days!! And don't forget that for a year or two, Disney gave premium AP's their own parking area that was right at the front of the gate. You had to pay a little more when you bought your AP's, but it was well worth it and at that time (late 80's, early 90's) the price of a premium AP was sooooo much less! Yep, I miss those days too!

    But I'm still happy that DCA is there now! Yeah, I know, I'm one of those that actually love DCA, and proud to say it!

    Am I the only one that didn't get to park so close to the front gate? I remember it taking FOREVER to walk across the parking lot. And with Disneyland packing in so many guests that they have to shut down the park, I'd hate for 40,000 + vehicles to bottleneck at one of 3 exits.

    The old parking lot is one of those fuzzy memory deals in which you remember it in a better light than what it really was IMO.

    But who's to say they have to be the same 'size' as the old cars. Yes, the old cars held 4 people - or 6 VERY SKINNY people ~ HA HA

    They could build newer, larger cars that could 'move' along.....

    Re: How about replacing the parking lot trams with the Peoplemover?

    It's really not practical for the amount of people we're talking about. The parking lot trams currently traffic (nearly) the ENTIRE park attendance for BOTH Disneyland and DCA.
    Now, if I'm not mistaken, each car on a Tramzilla can transport 30 people. There are usually seven cars on one lead car, making each tram have a 200 person capacity. Couple that with the amount of trams operating at one time. With a tram arriving every 5 minutes, that's 2400 riders per hour. These trams are usually running at more than that, even.
    You'd need a heck of a system to beat them.

    Even if the cars were as long as the current trams, that would be a decrease in capacity.

    I agree. And how in the world would you get 200 people onto a peoplemover that's constantly moving? The logistics are a nightmare!

    Re: How about replacing the parking lot trams with the Peoplemover?

    You know what'd be nice are long moving walkways like those found in Las Vegas. I prefer to walk when possible but the walk from the structure to Disneyland is a lengthy one. Assistance from moving platforms would be sweet.
