    Can I use the Pixar tram even though I am not parked at the garage?

    Hello Alexis!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for bringing your question to us! Are you planning a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth? Then you've come to the right place, because we here at planDisney love to help fellow guests plan a magical vacation! 

    I have such fond memories of the parking tram that transports you from the Mickey & Friends and Pixar Pals Parking Structures to the Esplanade! Many guests consider the tram their first and last ride experiences at the Parks. I'm happy to report that you would be able to utilize the tram to ride to the Esplanade even if you are not parking in the Parking Structures. There is a pedestrian access bridge that you may take to enter the parking plaza at the corner of Disneyland Drive and Magic Way. You would then go through the security screening station before boarding the tram on your way to a day of Magic! 

    The tram will deposit you at the Esplanade just outside the Parks, but I would encourage you to take the time to explore the Downtown Disney District at some point as well. There are a lot of exciting things on the horizon for this area and I'm really looking forward to its transformation. You can even take the Disneyland Monorail back into Tomorrowland! 

    Alexis, I hope that was helpful for you. We're here if you have any further questions about planning your stay at the Disneyland Resort and we'd be happy to help you out again! You're always welcome at planDisney! Until next time!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
