Hello all, I made a post about looking for housing in the area a month or two ago and managed to find a place. I'm just waiting for the paperwork at this point in time. But onto the point.
I'll be living about a mile away from the main entrance to the park and probably about 2 miles from the 700 W. Ball Road Cast Member entrance to the park. I know I need to go there on my first day to start the college program, but parking didn't look fun for for visitors. They were having a job fair when I walked by to ask for housing assitance, which they couldn't help me with until I have my id for working there, and it was packed. I'm thinking that not driving might be a decent option, and perhaps that biking to the resort instead to save time on the long walk might be an option.
So my question is broken into a few parts here. Is there bike parking for Cast Members at 700 W. Ball? Is there bike parking if I were to try and go to the parks for the day and didn't feel like walking? And one more important question, after my training in the back of the resort, do I need to continue to use that entrance? I am working in the hotels and not the park itself, but was wondering about CM entrances that are near the Southern side of DCA.
Now the one problem that I forsee in biking is where to bike. The roadways are too narrow to allow a bike to fit on them around the resort and the walkways near my future home are crowded with people walking to the resort making it a bit more difficult to use a bike at all. So as a final question, is it really even possible to bike there if people have tried?
