Beginning December 1, work will start on Town Center and the East parking garage, which will require Walt Disney World 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.
Guest parking will remain available in other locations including the New parking garage on the West Side and parking lots O, P, Q. During peak times the Team Disney, Casting, SunTrust and Hess Station lots will be available.
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.
Hotel Plaza Boulevard, Entrance 1 (across from Casting/SunTrust) and Entrance 3 (across from Team Disney) are the only crosswalks available for pedestrian traffic. 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). Also, 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.
