Re: parking at DOWNTOWN DISNEY
IF YOU ARE STAYING AT A disney resort I WOULD ALWAYS TAKE THE FREE DISNEY BUSES
Some more information has become available.
The parking spots that are being closed are between Planet Hollywood and Splitsville are expected to be off-limits by early next week, says Keith Bradford, vice president for Downtown Disney.
The existing lots — including one behind the Cirque du Soleil theater — should be able to handle a normal day of activity at Downtown Disney, Bradford says. On busier days and peak weekends, addition parking be available across the street in lots for Team Disney, the Casting building and the SunTrust bank building, he says. A shuttle will run from there to the shopping area or guests can walk, he says.
"We feel great about what we're able to provide [for parking]. We believe we'll handle the majority of it," Bradford says. "And on those days when there are some additional bodies coming in, we'll be able to park across the street."
Disney expects to have the garage ready by late 2014 or early 2015, Bradford says. When it opens, work will begin on another garage. Together, the two structures will hold 6,000 vehicles.
Here is what they should do if they end up charging for parking....if you buy merchandise or a meal you should be to get your parking validated and not get charged.

That would be a good idea, DisneyFreak. Let's hope it happens. I can't imagine WDW putting that much money into something and not getting it back out with additional charges.
We usually park behind Cirque, as I said. I imagine it will be packed back there now. People would rather park there than across the street I would imagine.
