  • [Question] Walking through CM Parking Lot to Toy Story Lot

    We are looking at staying at a hotel on katella (Worldmark Anaheim). The hotel is across the street from the CM parking lot to the north of the Toy Story Lot.

    Is it possible to walk through the CM lot to reach the trams at Toy Story? Are their guards or gates that would stop us from walking through?

    Thanks

    You probably could walk through the parking lot. I know that they forced us to park in the cm lot on a busy day this last summer so I think walking through it would be ok. Please correct me someone if I am wrong.

    But why would you want to do this. The distance you would have to walk to get to the busses is roughly the same as you would have to walk to go directly to the park. I would just walk directly to the park instead.

      my bother has that timeshare, but we haven't stayed there yet.

      we stayed at a motel near the Mickey and Friends parking structure and walked through the cast member parking lot gate to get to the trams and did not have a problem.

        Hmm.. I believe that CM's have to show their ID's when walking into the parking lot so my guess would be that normal guests wouldn't be allowed to.

        As for the person who parked in the CM parking lot, I think that would be considered a special exception. Just my thoughts...

          This is the best advice. I've walked from the Toy Story parking lot to the park before, and it's not that bad. In some conditions, it's quicker than the bus. So walking from your hotel to the park should be no sweat.

            It's about half the distance, but timewise about the same. So it does save steps but not seconds as you also need to take the buses.


            You can do walk through there is nothing to stop you. Be mindful as you do as CMs don't appreciate the guests walking through their CM only area, and use derogatory terms for the guests that do.

              No one does that!! ... Security stops people walking through cast member lots because it is deemed "backstage" they check ID, I have been stopped and asked Nicely to walk around.

                Lets just say I can refute your claim by saying, not always does nobody say that or do that.

                  The one time I stayed at a hotel on Ball Road, I tried this theory out. I was not able to walk through the CM lot to the Mickey and Friends tram, and had to go around the long way. However, I was told that at the end of the night I could walk *out* through the CM lot and that was true. I don't know if that's the case anymore; this was a few years back.

                    Thanks, everybody. Maybe that's the answer. Walk to the park in the morning (when we are fresh and exited) but ride the buses back to Toy Story at the end of the day (when we are all pooped out).

                    I think we will arrive a day before we try to go to the park. Maybe we will try walking to DTD or walking to the Toy Story buses on the early day.

                    Thanks again!

                      Walking through the parking lot to the Toy Story bus is .44 miles.

                      Walking the whole way is about .77 miles.

                        Walk through the Gardenwalk to Disney Way.

                          I was wondering about that, walking through Gardenwalk. Can we walk back through it at night, after the park closes? I have never been to Gardenwalk. Do they close the walkway after hours?

                            I don't think there is a way to "close" it. There might be a security gard keeping punks out.
                            So, leave your skateboards at home and you'll be alright.

                            Also, I think most of those places, the bars/restaurants and the bowling alley, stay open late.

                            You're going to be right next door to it. Might as well check it out.

                              One word of warning: The Villain face characters are the most likely CMs to mug guests who trespass through their territory.
