  • Timon parking lot closed yesterday?

    Does anybody know why the Timon parking lot was closed yesterday? A CM at the parking lot gate said it would be closed all week but didn't say why. We got to the park rather early so I figured that they simply wanted to fill up the outer lots first before letting people park in Timon.

    I am just curious is all. I also thought maybe that they were repaving it. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    I'm guessing it's because of the off season.

      It is a money saver, if they don't open the Timon lot, then they don't have to run the Lion King Trams, and all the staff that is needed to run those trams, plus the staff that they need to direct cars.

      It is easier to just have one parking area open, and send the folks to the parking structure.

      They have been doing this during the off-season for quite awhile now.....

            Actually they were doing some pyro testing in the lot. It has to do with the Honda event and I imagine they are staging and rehearsing for it.

            Strange though because I signed some friends into the Park a bit after 10am on Tuesday and they parked in Timon. Maybe you got there before they cleared the lot of whatever they were doing.

              The honda commercial was supposed to be filmed there this week but they put it off till the end of the month. and yes DarkBeer is right! They dont open timon because the structure will hold over 10,000 cars so needless to say they dont want to spend cash just to make things easier for you. (this is something that has happened within the past few years) It used to be open all the time, busy or not!

                Disney should learn that whenever they close a parking lot,
                people will always find creative alternatives.
