    In the Sinba parking lot, are there any electric car charging stations that can be used while visiting Downtown Disney, Anaheim, CA.

    Hi there, Christopher, and thanks for stopping by planDisney! 

    It sounds like you’re planning a visit to Downtown Disney District soon, and I’m so excited for you to experience a piece of the magic once again! You’ve picked a great time to visit, with Downtown Disney District extending into Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure Park starting November 19! 

    I did some digging, and found that yes, there are electric car charging stations available in the Simba Parking Lot! Even though these charging stations aren’t listed on the Parking page, I recalled seeing them on my last visit, so I checked on Google Maps, and was able to locate 23 dual-plug ChargePoint Charging Stations, with a total of 46 parking spaces in the Simba Parking Lot. According to the PlugShare website, these stations feature J-1772 plugs. You can find them near row “G”. In order to use one of these ports, you’ll need to scan a ChargePoint card. Lastly, keep in mind that parking in the Simba Lot is complimentary through November 18, but will begin charging a daily parking rate of $10 per car on November 19. 

    If you’re planning a visit on a Friday or a weekend, I highly recommend making a dining reservation ahead of time. A reservation will give you priority access to the Simba Parking Lot, even when parking is temporarily paused. Here’s a list of the dining options that are currently available in Downtown Disney District, along with which restaurants are currently accepting reservations

    I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to stroll down Buena Vista Street, munching on a churro, while taking in the sights and sounds of my happy place! Please stop by with any additional questions you have as you prepare for your visit… we’re all EARs!
