Downtown Disney Advisory: Access Update Starting Dec. 1

As Downtown Disney continues to transform into Disney Springs, parking access will continue to fluctuate and change to make way for future expansion. Beginning December 1, work will start on Town Center and the East parking garage, which will require them to close parking lots A-G in the Marketplace and Pleasure Island areas. This particular phase of the Disney Springs project will have impacts in other areas of Downtown Disney.

Parking closures: Lots A-G
Guest parking will remain available in other locations including:
  • Parking lots O, P, Q
  • New parking garage on the West Side
  • Team Disney, Casting and SunTrust (as needed during peak times)
  • Hess Station lot (as needed during peak times)
Entrances 1 & 2 closures for vehicular traffic
As a result of the parking lot closures, Entrance 1 (across from Casting/SunTrust into the Marketplace) and Entrance 2 (across from the Hess Station) into Downtown Disney will close.

Guests may continue to use Entrance 3 (across from Team Disney) and Entrance 5 (across from Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park) to access the property.

Entrances 1 & 3 for pedestrian traffic
Hotel Plaza Boulevard, Entrance 1 (across from Casting/SunTrust) and Entrance 3 (across from Team Disney) are the only crosswalks available for pedestrian traffic.

Bridge updates beginning Dec. 1
- Bridge 2 closing
  • Guests will not be able to enter/exit through Bridge 2 (near Raglan Road) to access the Pleasure Island area.
  • The only access into the Pleasure Island area will be through Bridge 1 (by Riverboat Square) and Bridge 5 (formerly Bridge 4; main walkway between Pleasure Island and the West Side).
- Pedestrian boardwalk near Paradiso 37
  • The pedestrian boardwalk along the waterway near Paradiso 37 is closing. Guests may use the new walkway from the Marketplace to the West Side as an alternate.
During this expansion work, the Walt Disney World Resort will continue to adjust operations. The Downtown Disney team continue to be creative and diligent to create the best experience for Guests. Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility during this time of change.
