The Construction at Downtown Disney is Not an Expansion but Just Parking Lot Maintenance
Construction around the Downtown Disney area at Disneyland is leaving visitors and locals wondering what might be going on. The OC Register ran a piece this afternoon highlighting the fact that the area where construction walls have gone up is in a location previously identified as the future home of a potential Disneyland Resort expansion.
The site in question is a parking lot area next to Downtown Disney. However, as the Register tells us, its not time to get too exciting just yet.
Disneyland is apparently removing trees from the Stitch cast member parking and resurfacing the asphalt. The Stitch parking lot will reopen at some point later this Fall and will still be used for Cast Member parking at the moment.
So why all the excitement over parking lot repairs? As we previously reported here at MickeyBlog, the Stitch parking lot along with additional land near Downtown Disney, Disneyland Hotel and Paradise Pier Hotel has been the focal point of a theme park expansion plan. However, the project, at least for the time being, is on hold due to continued negotiations between Disney and the city of Anaheim.
Previously talked about plans for the area includes a theme park expansion and other projects designed to make the Downtown Disney area as well as the links between the three Disney Resort properties more cohesive.
However, the DisneylandForward project is still on hold and the work on the parkling lot is nothing more than routine maintenance.
This is a story that we will continue to follow closely. Readers are encouraged to keep following along with us for further Walt Disney World news and updates.
