Disney opened the top floor of the new Disney Springs Orange parking garage this past week, bringing much needed additional parking capacity, and charging stations for electric vehicles.
Unlike levels 2 - 4, the top floor of the garage does not include individual parking space availability indicators, but signs at the entrance to the garage, and on the level change ramps, do include the total availability for the floor.
The access to the top floor is much the same as the others, with elevators, escalators, and a stairwell leading to the lower levels. All access to Disney Springs is via the walkways on level 2, so parking in any other level will result in need to move to level 2.
Without the vertical support columns, the top floor is a vast open space, and gives a better idea of just how large the new garage is.
Unique to the top floor is the availability of electric vehicle charging stations.
There are currently three Level 2 chargers available on the top floor, operated by ChargePoint. The cost to charge is $.35 per kw/h, with a minimum charge cost of $1.50. Like all ChargePoint stations, they are available on a first come, first served basis, with payment via credit card at the charge station, or via a ChargePoint account card, which you can obtain free from ChargePoint.
Disney Springs joins Epcot as the first two locations on Walt Disney World property that allow for electric car charging.
