  • Are the Trams expected to return soon?

    Just curious if the trams will be coming back soon? I've got reservations for the end of August. It looks like by then, most everything will be operating.

    By then I think it will depend on how often they are meeting capacity. The security check at the parking garages is a huge choke point, and major backups across multiple days from people needing to walk to the park every day might drive them to bring them back. However, I don't know if the parks will regularly reach a high capacity without the usual APs there to fill them out. Could be hit or miss depending on how things are going. And if they can save money on labor by not running the trams, they definitely will.

        As someone who recently broke their leg, I now understand why trams are important, LOL.

        I think trams benefit the elderly and disabled. If anything, they should be brought back for those groups in particular.

            That's a smart idea too! Even a bus would be nice.

              Sorry to hear about your leg they should honestly have like wheelchairs ready to rent from the parking lot. End-to-end service would go a long way, though I suppose plenty of people would take undue advantage of that.

                IMO_Not a bad Ideal .........Long with the special BUS........
                But Disney would have to keep the service , near the gate as well........
                That would be great benefit for the elderly and disabled.
                Concept Disney should think about ?

                  Based on what I have seen, my guess would be yes. I'd bet by the end of June, mid-July at the latest.

                    There is no logical reason to not operate the trams at this point. Anyone who has been vaccinated isn't at risk anyway. No reason to wear a mask either.

                        I consider the tram the first ride of the day at Disneyland. I've always liked the narrator in particular. Just ahead is the Downtown Disney District, with exciting shopping, dining, and live entertainment. Just beyond it is Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa—inspired by the famed Arts and Crafts movement in California.

                          The DL website states there is a rental facility at the Pixar parking structure. I also wasn't aware the rental facility is OUTSIDE the turnstiles, but I guess it is:

                          "Rental Location
                          ECV and manual wheelchair rentals are available outside the theme parks, just east of the Disneyland Park Main Entrance and at the Pixar Pals parking structure."

                          https://disneyland.disney.go.com/gue...chair-rentals/


                          I'm not planning to visit until the Fall and I hope the trams are running by then as I have a mobility impairment. Not severe, but enough that I have to 'conserve' every step I can and the trams are invaluable for that.

                          At WDW they weren't running either, but they have 'saved' parking that is NOT the 'blue placard' lot but parking spots nearest the entrances for those with very temporary issues (thus no blue or red placard). Saved our behinds as DH blew out his knee just before we left. He could manage to hobble from the overflow parking to the entrances but we rented an ECV for him for the rest of the day.

                            That's good to hear. Despite all the bloggers and content on Twitter, I had never so much as seen a picture of where to rent the wheelchairs at Pixar Pals. I'm curious where they ended up putting it, as the last I saw the ground floor seemed to be exclusively for security/loading. I do hope the trams return soon once capacity restrictions ease.

                              I don't see Chapek providing services, that have traditionally been available for free, making a return under Bob Chapek. Possibly they will come back in the future but for a fee. Chapek could say they are bringing the tram back for older folks and the those with disabilities, but they need to charge a fee to discourage the masses from limiting those who truly need to use them. Win Win for Chapek. Limit tram usage and maintenance, limit employee costs all while making a profit off of something they provided for free in the past. Kind of like Disney World's Magical express bus in Florida that use to take Disney World resort guests for free from Orlando Airport directly to their Disney World resort. Chapek discontinued that a few months ago but is making it available again, for a fee per person now.

                              Nickel and dime folks.

                                can be true..........the way Chapek is running the company imo

                                  Bingo. Upcharging for previously free services is another of the many reasons that the Chapek regime is called Pressler 2.0. Paul was notorious for it. Anyone remember the outrage when he not only 'wayyy increased the price of souvenir hats and Mouse ears, but added an extra charge if you wanted to have your name stitched on your hat?

                                  And yet people got used to it, and consumer demand for the Parks continued to grow. That's why the Chapek regime will continue increasing prices and upcharging for previously free "extras" like tram service.
