    Worlds biggest parking lot!

    Don't know if this has been covered, but does anyone have any idea just how many cars fit in the HUGE parking structure? I looked at it on Google Earth and the thing is GINORMOUS! It's also not the most fun walk if you park all the way on the opposite end of the escalators!
    Is this haunted room actually stretching? Or is it the four beers you had at DCA, hmmm?

    I heard the biggest one is at Tokyo Disneyland and is only bigger than Disneyland's by (I think it was) three spaces.

    I do. The world's largest parking lot serves West Edmonton Mall in Alberta, Canada (the mall happens to be the largest shopping mall in North America too).

    Re: Worlds biggest parking lot!

    It's funny to think that the old 100 acre parking lot is the same size of Pooh's home the 100 acre wood. It's wierd how they relocated all that parking and added more to a six level garage.

    Re: Worlds biggest parking lot!

    Well, according to this site: http://www.iesny.org/committees/lume...nners2002.aspx in 2002 the Mickey & Friends lot was the largest...

    Mickey and Friends Parking Structure
    Anaheim, California
    The world's largest parking structure was built to replace surface parking used for the expansion of this theme park. Just seven different long life energy efficient fluorescent and metal halide lamps simplify maintenance. The project was brought in below budget by relying on simple fixtures tightly integrated with the architecture.



    Not sure of the date, but this site http://greatstructures.info/canada.htm claims that the Edmonton Mall parking is the worlds largest at 20,000 spaces
    Total Area: 49 hectares (121 acres), equivalent to 104 Canadian (115 American) football fields, or 5,300,000ft2.
    - Total Construction Cost: CDN$1,200,000,000.00.
    - Light Fixtures: 325,000.
    - Entrances: 58.
    - Stores: Over 800.
    - Employment Opportunities: 23,500.
    - Parking: Over 20,000 vehicles, World's largest.
    - Indoor Lake: World's largest.
    - Indoor Wave Pool: 2 hectares (5 acres); World's largest.
    - Indoor Amusement Park: 37,160m2 (400,000ft2); World's Largest.
    - Bungee Jumping: World's only indoor location (inside the water park).
    - Hotel: 354 rooms, 118 of which are "themed".
    - Annual Visitors: 20,000,000.
    - Restaurants: 110.
    - Movie Theatres: 19.
    Wikipedia (I know, not that reliable) states this about M&F - Most of the resort's parking today is handled by the six-level "Mickey and Friends" parking structure. With six levels and 10,250 parking spaces, it was for a short time the largest parking structure in the world. (oh, and they give largest to Edmonton Mall)



    I could go on and on (wow, google is such a friend sometimes) but when I find actual threads on something called "google earth community: parking" http://bbs.keyhole.com/ubb/showflat....c=&Search=true I have to stop. Or I'd be quoting all day long -
    Parking at Detroit Metro Airport is easier and more convenient than ever before. With an 11,500-space parking structure which opened adjacent to the McNamara Terminal / Northwest WorldGateway in February of 2002, the airport now has nearly 17,000 available on-airport parking spaces."



    or
    I just started working at Universal Orlando Resort, and we were told that we have the largest parking structures in the World.


    So, I will stop.
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    What is with the trash at the end of the night? Every time I go the place looks like a landfill!
    Is this haunted room actually stretching? Or is it the four beers you had at DCA, hmmm?

    Can you imagine what our park would be like with the same amount of space as WDW?

    Re: Worlds biggest parking lot!

    I think West Edmonton Mall at 20,000 cars is still the largest (21 years later).

    Got this info from:
    http://www.mccarthy.com/locations/ke...sc/parking.asp

    Mickey & Friends Parking Structure
    Anaheim, California
    $87.9 million, 3,750,000 sf, 10,242 car, 6-level parking structure (1150' long and 610' wide) for the Disneyland Resort.
