  • Katella Lot

    This probably isnt a really good idea but than again I think it would be necessary to add two automatic gates, One for entering k-lot and the other gate to exit but upon exiting you have to swipe your castmember ID for the exit gate to open. This will discourage guests/patrons or employees from other buisnesses from trying to park inside k-lot . good idea/bad idea?:blush:

    way too time consuming and would cause traffic jams onto the street
    Is this haunted signature
    actually
    stretching?

      Good point! To eliminate the supposed traffic jam, the entrance can be left open, but there needs to be more than one security guard to throughly look for hang tags.

        If I was installing gates, I'd only do it at the entrances, the way the TDA parking structure is now. The exits have spike strips with accompanying signs that say "DO NOT BACK UP SEVERE TIRE DAMAGE." Katella Cast Member Lot already has the signs installed, although it would appear that the spike strips have been removed. If everyone coming in had an ID, I don't think it'd slow things down too

          curious about the RFIDs are they just given out if you ask or only specific people can get them?

            They are only issued to Cast Members that need them. Some areas have doors that require an RFID card to access, and only certain Cast Members are allowed in those areas under normal circumstances. You may hear some Cast Members referring to their IDs as a "proxy." This is because we use HID Prox cards, information on which can be found at http://www.hidcorp.com/technology.ph...1&subcat_id=10. (As a side note, this annoys me ever so slightly. I personally refer to them as a Prox cards, or the more generic term, RFID cards, but never "proxy.")

            I do have to admit that having one does make things slightly simpler. At Harbor Pointe or the H5 gate, I don't have to take my ID out of the plastic case to scan it. I just show the guard my ID, in its case, and use the RFID reader.

                Eh. The security shack kinda already accomplishes this. All they have to do is note what car comes in without a tag or ID and note it. Another security guard then goes after them.
                I would not be for swiping IDs. With large numbers of cast coming and going at the same time, I don't want to be stuck behind someone swiping a card when I want to leave. It is a very inefficient system.

                  I would certainly not be an advocate of scanning an ID to leave. What's the point? And as far as scanning an ID to enter, each of the shuttles would have to be equipped with a mid-range transponder like the FasTrak system to keep things moving efficiently, since it wouldn't make much sense to have the driver fumble with an access card. In order to keep things moving as quickly as they have to, especially during peak traffic times, RFID would be a necessity, not just a convenience. I doubt the company would want to deal with the time and expense of issuing new IDs to Cast Members that don't already have RFID chips in their ID cards.

                    Ugh... when someone goes to try and get in at TDA and their badge doesn't work and they have to hit the call button to get access, the line of cars backs up all the way to Ball Road. I can't imagine that working for K-lot... not to mention that all ID cards would have to be updated to allow K-lot access, since K-lot is the overflow for B-lot, and B-lot itself is the overflow for TDA.

                        where? Theres 4 lots for CMs, Simba(serving Hotel/Paradise pier CMs) Ball(serving North/east CMs), TDA structure(serving TDA ppl) and K-Lot(serving everyone else that doesnt need to park in other lots)

                        Simba is located on Katella southwest of Paradise pier, Ball is located North of the structure, TDA is located on Ball rd and 5 freeway, and k lot is located on clemente and katella.

                          Hello Everyone, I'm new to the site & I would love to catch up with everything going on. That's funny! for those of "us" that remember K-lot, KCML or whatever else you want to call it. And what about the therapy bus? I remember those days & shuttles. I used to be a shuttle driver. Does anyone remember Mickey & Friends Lot? When the cast members had to park get picked up & taken over & under the Grand California Hotel (underground)? that was fun, but so long ago. And what about the T.D.A. van?

                            If you take a look at the gates to Katella Lot, you would notice that they are auto gates. This method was used a while back, but like it was said before it caused traffic jams and other concerns.
                            Well Secluded, I see all!!!

                              old school goofy, you provided info that I needed. the parking lot that I was referring to obviously was just one of the parking areas for one of the hotels then.
