The Original Parking Lot is Gone at Disney to Make Way for Cars Land!

Ack! I was never able to say a proper goodbye! All kidding aside, I’m sad to say the original parking lot at Disneyland, yes the only one that existed before they systematically began chopping it up to make room for California Adventure, is now a part of history.


A few weeks ago I heard that the final section was closed to make room for Cars Land. I’ve now seen it for myself. It’s gone. Don’t get me wrong, we love the giant Mickey and Friends parking structure, but there was just something cool about parking in the Timon lot and walking in if you didn’t see a tram around, since the walk never took more than 5-10 minutes.

Oh well, at least Cars Land is sounding like a pretty neat addition and much needed boost to California Adventure. I’ll work on posting more photos of the progress as I have chance to grab them!

I'm a little nostalgic about it being the last piece gone :( I had no idea - I guess I won't see it in September.
