General Information

Parking for both theme parks, Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, is located in the same areas. These are not separate parking areas for the two parks, as they are so close together. Free transportation is offered from the parking areas to the theme park entrance via parking tram. Theme park parking areas open one hour before the park is scheduled to open.

Acceptable Payment methods include:

  • Cash (Bills up to $100 are accepted)
  • Visa, Mastercard, America Express, Discover, JCB, and Diner’s Club
  • Disney Rewards Visa Card or Disney Rewards Redemption Card
  • Disney Gift Cards
  • Disney Dollars
  • Pre-Paid Parking Vouchers

Preferred Parking is located near the elevators and escalators in the Mickey and Friends parking structure. These spots will reduce the amount of walking for guests and ease the challenge of finding your car after a day in the parks. Upon arrival, purchase Preferred Parking and a Cast Member will direct you to the appropriate parking spot.

Disability parking is available at each available parking location. Those requiring disability parking must have either a hanging disability placard or a disability license plate to park in disability parking. Upon arrival, Parking Cast Members will be able to direct you to disability parking. The parking trams can accommodate some with disabilities, but vans are also available to transport guests to the theme parks from the parking areas.

Electric Vehicle Charging Ports are available at the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure. A Cast Member directing parking will be able to direct guests to the electric vehicle charging areas. These are ChargePoint ports and require a ChargePoint card for use. The ChargePoint website is not controlled by disneyland.com, so different terms of use and a separate privacy policy will apply.
