Pixar Pals Parking Structure Opens at Disneyland Resort June 30
by Kevin Rafferty, Jr., External Communications Manager, Disneyland Resort
Last year, we announced plans to build another parking structure adjacent to Mickey & Friends. The new structure, called Pixar Pals, features familiar friends from Disney and Pixar films such as “Coco,” “Monsters, Inc.” and “Inside Out.”
Today, we’re excited to announce that Pixar Pals will be open for guest parking beginning June 30 – months ahead of schedule!
Pixar Pals will add more than 5,000 parking spaces to the west side of the Disneyland Resort. With additional entry lanes and a new electronic inventory system, the new parking structure will expedite guest parking and reduce traffic around the resort.
Additionally, we began installing the Magic Way Pedestrian Bridge, which is set to be completed by mid-September. This new bridge will connect visitors from Pixar Pals—over Magic Way—to the rest of the resort, allowing guests the option to stroll through the Downtown Disney District to the theme parks’ Main Entrance. By eliminating the foot traffic crossing the street at Disneyland Drive and Magic Way, the new bridge provides convenience, enhances safety, and improves traffic circulation.
These parking and transportation enhancements—along with other existing parking options throughout the resort area—are designed to improve parking and traffic flow to continue to enhance the overall guest experience at the Disneyland Resort.
