TTC Magic Kingdom Parking Lot Trams July 13 2021
Posted: Tuesday July 13, 2021 1:43pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Transportation operations Cast Members were accompanied by maintenance crews at the Transporation and Ticket Center this morning as preparations appear to be underway for a return of the tram service at the Magic Kingdom.

The trams remain out of service at all four Walt Disney World theme parks since they reopened in July 2020 due to physical distancing requirements and labor shortages. Guests are required to walk from their cars to the main entrances.

At each of the parks and TTC, the trams have mainly sat untouched for more than a year.

Sorry - my post was sarcasm. They actually ARE charging the same as the other lots, despite having reduced amenities and less overhead to operate these. Glad you want cast in the parks but that has nothing to do with the price you pay to park when one of the things that supposedly justified that price in the past is taken away - especially, when it's not done consistently, despite maintaining consistent pricing among the properties.

Perhaps you could, that doesn't mean that everyone can and not everyone with mobility problems have handicap parking or parking availability.

Agree. Rather have them in the park than the trams for sure. Epcot the parking is not that far away that you can’t walk. Only place is the first lot on the right all the way on the end as you can’t cut through. Ada parking is right in front and the tram always took so long to load. I don’t miss it nor did I use it when it worked. I could walk faster.

He gets it, right out of his Econ 101 textbook. Things are always great in Theoryville.

Garages are a great idea and would be a convenience for the guests. RCID can float the bonds to build them............................ Oh crap, RCID is going away. Thanks Bob2 and Ronnie. Scrap that idea. Normal Guest parking just went up to $50 to pay for them.

That's not even what I was saying, here. I know you don't get it but it's cool. πŸ‘

I don't get it? You don't reduce prices just because your costs decrease. You reduce prices because the market isn't willing to pay your current price. If your costs decrease and the market is still willing to pay your current price, its winner winner chicken dinner time.

Personally, I'm just glad they recognized that this lack of service in these two lots standing in stark contrast to the other two was a good enough reason to reduce the price of parking for Epcot and Hollywood Studios until such services are eventually restored. I mean, presumably, that was what some of that higher parking fee was going towards, right?

Which is what mothballs are really supposed to do. Why does grandma's place smell the way it does? Probably because she has something in encased in mothballs to protect it.

A garage would take up a smaller footprint thereby reducing the amount of solar panels that could be installed over the parking. An enormous amount of energy would need to be used to build the unnecessary garage. There may be some kind of incentive to put solar panels over the parking lot but there must be a reason that none of the on property solar farms were built over any lot.

Oxford dictionary defintion :) stop using (a piece of equipment or a building) but keep it in good condition so that it can readily be used again.
