    How often does the Toy Story parking area shuttle run back and forth from the parks? What is the average wait time for it to return? Thank you!


    Welcome to planDisney, Bailey, you’re my favorite deputy! The planDisney Roundup is here and ready to help answer your questions.

    First off, I’m thrilled to see that you will be visiting the Disneyland Resort very soon and riding like the wind in no time! After parking in the Toy Story Parking Area, your wait times for a bus will vary. Sometimes I’ve been lucky enough to hop on a bus instantly, other times I’ve waited about 5 to 15 minutes for one! It really isn’t that long of a wait, it’s just the anticipation of being minutes away from The Happiest Place on Earth that makes it seem longer than what it is.

    On the way back to the parking structure is when I feel like the wait varies even more. We usually close out the park so we tend to leave during the busiest time of the day. In the evening, we have waited anywhere between 5 to 30 minutes for a bus. Sometimes if both kids are asleep in our double stroller my husband and I usually “take one for the team” and just walk back to the Toy Story Parking Area. It allows our kids to sleep longer and we don’t have to juggle two sleeping zombies, bags of souvenirs, and folding the stroller. So if you’re up for that and don’t feel like waiting, the walk isn’t too bad. I will tell you though, your feet will probably be a little tired.

    I hope all this helps, Bailey! Have a fantastic visit and please be sure to let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help with.
