    Where can I park for downtown Disney?

    Hiya, Jamie! Welcome to planDisney and thanks so much for sharing your question with us. I'll be delighted to share some information about parking near the Disneyland Resort!

    If you're planning to visit the Downtown Disney District, you'll find parking at the Simba Lot, located on the corner of Disneyland Drive and West Katella Avenue, near Pixar Place Hotel. This is a surface lot and the first hour of parking is $10, with additional hours charged in 30-minute increments. You can enjoy an additional 3 hours of same-day parking with validation and a minimum purchase from any Downtown Disney location. Or, if you book a reservation at a Downtown Disney District table-service restaurant, you'll have up to 5 additional hours of same-day parking with validation! You can see more details about parking lots at the Disneyland Resort, including the Simba Lot, on the Guest Services page.

    I'm not sure if this is helpful to you, Jamie, but you might also be interested to know that there is a designated Downtown Disney District Guest Pickup and Drop-Off location and these areas are often used by taxi and rideshare services.

    Finally, if you are parking I recommend using the Car Locator feature within the official Disneyland mobile app. You can find this by tapping the '☰' on the app home screen and scrolling down to "Car Locator." This complimentary feature will allow you to use your mobile device's location services to find and save your parking details digitally, for ease of reference when you're ready to head home at the end of your day. No more wandering the lot, wondering where you parked! 

    I hope this is helpful advice for now, Jamie. If we can lend any other personal recommendations for your upcoming visit, please feel welcome to reach out to planDisney with your questions. We'd be so honored to help out!

    Wishing you Wondrous Journeys,
