    I am visiting the Catal Restaurant at downtown Disney. The walk is very difficult for my elderly mother from the Simba Parking lot. Are there other closer options? If I drop her off at downtown Disney drop off, is it a shorter walk?

    Welcome to planDisney, Tracy! We're glad you're here!

    Catal Restaurant in Disneyland's Downtown Disney District has an American/Mediterranean menu. Fan favorites include the Crispy Calamari, Marinated Skirt Steak, and the Paella. I'm getting a "Rumbly in my Tumbly" just thinking about it! Here's a planDisney tip: ask for a balcony table if you are dining on a nice night when Disneyland Park has fireworks scheduled- just don't forget to bring a sweater!

    The Simba Parking Lot is the Downtown Disney District parking area, which is the closest parking to Catal. Unfortunately, there is no separate drop-off location. However, if your mom has a handicap-accessible parking placard, you can park in any available disabled-marked space—subject to space availability.

    If you're also planning to visit the parks, the easiest option is to park at the Mickey & Friends/Pixar Pals Parking Structure. From the structures, you'll be able to utilize the tram service. Trams will drop Guests off near World Of Disney (also close to the Main Entrance Esplanade of the parks). From there, it's a short(er) walk to Catal.

    I hope you and your mom have a lovely night out, Tracy! See ya real soon!
