Disneyland Officials: Parking Lot Project Not Start of DisneylandForward Theme Park Expansions

    According to a report from the OC Register, recent work on the Stitch Cast Member parking lot near Downtown Disney is not the start of the Disneyland Forward theme park expansion project. Disneyland Forward, which has not been publicly announced to have been approved by the city of Anaheim, aims to expand both Disneyland theme park and Disney California Adventure theme park in the coming years. Here’s a look at concept art released by Disney of their Disneyland Forward vision.

    The Disneyland theme park expansion appears to take over the Stitch parking lot. When crews began demolishing parts of the parking lot, rumors swirled that the work could be early work for the Disneyland Forward project.

    Here’s a look at the parking lot in question (left half of image below).

    As it turns out, Disneyland officials say that they are just removing some trees and repaving the parking lot. The tree roots had reportedly been impacting the parking lot and Disney is starting fresh.

    1. Just noticed this and have to ask, where are the handicap spaces and parking for Downtown Disney going to be when this gets underway? Last time we were down that’s the lot we were directed to for handicap parking.
