Permit filing suggests 11 acre expansion to the Magic Kingdom parking lot

Apr 30, 2019 in "Magic Kingdom"

Recently filed permits suggest that the Magic Kingdom will be further expanding its parking facility at the Transportation and Ticket Center.

According to the filing for a new retention pond, "This facility will also provide treatment for a proposed parking expansion within the Magic Kingdom Guest Parking Lot. That expansion is a part of this permit and will remove an 11.4 acre wetland and replace that same area with a paved parking surface." (Thanks to danlb_2000 on the WDWMAGIC Forums for locating the permit)

The wetland area to be paved is in the center of the parking lot, and is currently a forested area. The new large retention pond would be in the place of the existing Mickey shaped pond.

It has only been a few years since the TTC expanded its parking capacity into the former Speedway area, but continual increases in attendance seem to support the need for more parking.
