The Disneyland Resort has been cleared by the Anaheim Planning Commission to add an additional 455 parking spaces to the Toy Story Parking Lot accoridng to the OC Register. This will bring the lot to a total of 5,378 spots. The new parking area will be in a stormwater detention basin, as a result, the spots will not be utilized when it rains. This should be of little impact as attendance is not high during inclement weather.
As part of the agreement, Disneyland will replace the existing 6-foot wall with a 16-foot sound wall and will landscape the area with Canary Island Pine trees.
A Disneyland spokesman told the OC Register, “We’re pleased to be able to offer even more parking options for our guests.”
Disneyland’s Eastern Gateway project that would add a 6,800-spot parking structure where the Pumbaa Parking Lot is today is on-hold due to concerns from Anaheim Resort businesses. Disneyland had hoped to have this additional capacity by the time that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in 2019. This has put additional pressure to find additional parking wherever they can find it.
