    Thanks for the information Robert. As if parking down there wasn't bad enough already

    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    You can say that again. :rant:
    Unless you get there early it`s best to forget using entrances 1 & 2, and it always amuses me to see how many folks wait around for a parking spot to lessen their walk to the stores and clogging up the access, rather than just driving on to find a spot a few yards further away.

    That is why I love to stay at PORT ORLEANS RIVERSIDE and DON'T have to drive to DOWNTOWN DISNEY just take the boat

    We always head directly for the West Side. The "back" parking lot is always available and really, it's not much of a walk from one end of DTD to the other. There is some serious "people congestion" at times, but it's truly a short distance as long as you have good mobility.

    I can't picture where the garage is going? I'll have to wait and see it for myself, I guess! I'm so reliant on seeing things in the here and now. I'm the sort that drives furniture movers bonkers. "Could you try it over there?" "Ummmm, nope. How about there?" "Welllllll, maybe on this wall instead?" You get the idea!






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!

    That`s exactly what we found on our recent trip Tink.
    There was oodles of space available in the area closer to the West Side, so why able bodied folks feel the need to waste time finding a space just that little bit closer to the shops always amazes me.

    Any idea how long that parking will be closed down? We're going in September and I was hoping parking wouldn't be too terrible. It's been years since we've been to Downtown and I was looking forward to spending part of our first day there.

    They're probably the same people that park 3 feet from the school gates so their child doesn't wear themselves out getting into school.

    I would think it will be closed permanently now until the new multi story parking is available.
