    Hello, How far is the walk from the Simba Lot to Downtown Disney? Distance and walking time please. I am disabled, so I’d like to know ahead of time. Thank you!

    Welcome back to planDisney, Princess Cynthia!

    Since life is sweet here, you’ve got to be here. Naturally.

    I’m glad you’ve come back while you get your Donald Ducks in a row, preparing for your next visit to the Disneyland Resort. Speaking of Donald, did you know he’s turning 90 years old this weekend? I happen to share a birthday with Mr. Duck (though I am a few years shy of 90 myself), so I’m looking forward to stopping by the Downtown Disney District to pick up a slice of birthday cake from the Hearthstone Lounge on our behalf!

    Cynthia, the Simba Lot is the designated parking lot for the Downtown Disney District. It's conveniently located off Disneyland Drive, between West Katella Avenue and the Pixar Place Hotel, and is just a quick 5-minute walk to the all-new entrance. There are designated parking spaces for guests with disabilities, marked closest to the entrance, for those with valid disabled parking placards or license plates. If you have any specific parking needs, such as additional space for a wheelchair ramp or lift, please inform a Cast Member as you enter the lot for assistance.

    I hope this is the problem-free philosophy you were looking for, Cynthia! Please swing by again soon if you have any more questions! I'd love to hear about the adventures you're cooking up, and I'm always here to dish out some handy tips!

    Hakuna Matata,
