  • Annual Pass Parking Locations: A Question and Discovery

    Anyone know why every time a go to the Lion King Lot, they let me in with my Annual Pass Parking benefit even though the website CLEARLY states the only annual pass parking is at the Mickey and Friends structure?

    Why isn't important I suppose. But, YEA! I hate the structure. So those who want to try the Lion King Lot, they have let me in every time in the past.

    Out of curiosity, what don't you like about the M&F structure?

      I think the idea is, they will only guarantee that you can park in the structure (as lion king is not always open). That way people won't complain that they paid to park in lion king, so it HAS to be open.....

        I would be interested to know if any other AP holders have been successful in using their parking pass in the Lion King lot.

          Just wondering, if you know that with your pass youre supposed to park in M&F, why do you try and park elsewhere?

            I have a couple of times when happened to be on that side of the park and didn't feel like driving around. I've also been sent away from the Lion King lot and told to drive to M&F.

              The traffic getting in and out I feel is worse than the Lion King Lot.

              Also, I have the worst experiences with rude visitors on the escalators. :bang: Strollers running me over, kids pushing me, adults invading my personal space.... I know, small things to deal with in the grand scheme of things.

              But, if I have my choice of parking options, I'd pick the big lot over the structures anyday. Besides the reasons mentioned, it just seems calmer. I am always calmer entering the park from the lot as opposed to the structure. The structure stresses me out.

                I just found out today, as of two minutes before I posted, that I was only suppose to park in M&F's. I just got my AP on Sept. 30th.

                Call it ignorance. Although, when I bought the pass at the ticket booth, no one told me the parking rules.

                  Wow, I've never had any of those experiences! That sucks. If I felt like you do, I'd probably want to park in the lot too!

                    If that was the case, wouldn't they just say free parking, and not specify at all where you were to park? All you purchased then was the right to park in one of the Disney parking lots.

                      1) The fact that there aren't nearly enough elevators or escalators, so even before your day begins you are almost guaranteed a very long walk (much longer, on average, than the walk in the old lot to a tram).

                      2) No elevators available, allegeldly, for those other than those with strollers (I hate the escalators)

                      3) At various times it can be much harder to get into and much harder to get out of.

                      Among the top reasons I despise the Mickey and Fiends structure...

                        M&F provides good shelter from thunderstorm downpours and (most importantly) lightning, and prevents your car and its contents from cooking in the 107 degree heat and humidity of July 22-23, 2006. You should have seen all the guests scramble back into the structure from the tram waiting area when the storm rolled through that morning. I was glad I had somewhere to run where I didn't have to worry about getting struck by lightning.

                            You just had to worry about the largest parking structure in the US getting hit by lightning.

                              They let you park in whatever Parking lot is open......they would prefer you just go to the Structure, but you don't have to. I've parked in Lion King quite often.....depending on the direction I'm coming from.
                              Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
                              it's what they are like in their HEART!

                                Odd! I'm 5'3" and I've never had any problems. Never got hit by one of those SUV strollers either. Maybe I'm just lucky.

                                  Just curious. If you don't park in the structure because of the situations you listed, how is it that you survive actually going into the parks, where there is nothing but big crowds, crowd control pushing, strollers, wheelchairs, shoulder-to-shoulder traffic, etc?

                                    I had no idea we were supposed to park excusively in M&F.

                                    I usually go through the Harbor entrance (when it's open) and I park in whatever is available. The only reason I have had to go to the structure is when no-one is parking in Lion King (and that is more than 50% of the time).

                                    When I have the kids and stroller, the only thing I don't like about the elevators is the way they try to slam shut as soon as someone gets on or off. If you have to wait for someone to get out before going in, you'd better get close to the door and stick your hand in front of it.
                                    How much do we have to pay to get MiceChat Old?

                                      We always park in the Lion King lot. I perfer it over Mickey and Friends because it seems faster, getting in/out of the park. Best time to park in Lion King is after 3:00pm when they reopen it from the morning. Usually get front row parking at that time.
