    Hi, my birthday is this Sunday, I have a day ticket & wanted to have brunch with my extended family at TangaroaTerrace. They are not going to the parks & will need to park somewhere. What is the most cost-effective way for them part and attend?

    Hi, Barbara! 

    Welcome back to planDisney, and thanks so much for sending us another question. I’m so glad to hear you’ll be celebrating your birthday at the Happiest Place on Earth-- there’s no better place to spend a special day, and brunch at Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill sounds lovely! I enjoy starting my morning there with a delicious order of Tangaroa Toast and a cup of Hawaiian Kona coffee when I stay at the Disneyland Hotel.

    I think the best bet for your family is to plan to explore the Downtown Disney District before or after your birthday brunch and use Downtown Disney District Parking at the Simba Lot, which is located off Disneyland Drive near Pixar Place Hotel. The first hour of parking currently costs $10, and they can enjoy an additional three hours of same-day parking with a minimum purchase of $20 from any Downtown Disney District location. They just need to be sure to let the Cast Member know they need parking validation at the time of their transaction. If they decide to stay and explore the area until later in the day, they can get up to five additional hours of parking with validation from any Downtown Disney District table-service restaurant. Please keep in mind that parking in any lot at the Disneyland Resort is subject to availability and rates can change at any time. 

    I hope this information is helpful, Barbara, and that your birthday celebration is pixie-dusted to perfection! I hope to hear from you again as you plan your next Disneyland Resort visit.

    Wishing you magic,
