Just in time for holiday season shopping rush, Downtown Disney will open part of the new Westside Parking Garage to guests in late November. That extra capacity is much needed and I’m sure it will be appreciated.
Some Cast Members who work at Downtown Disney have already started to use the facility. Floors 1-4 will be open for guests starting around the final week of November. Around 1700 spots will be open originally, more will open at a later date.
If you’re heading to Downtown Disney, you’ll need to go to entry signal 3, which is located by the AMC24 and Planet Hollywood, across from Team Disney.
I expect that once all of the Westside garage is open, Disney will begin to close the MarketPlace parking lots to begin construction on the second parking garage. Downtown Disney will officially become Disney Springs when “The Landing” opens in 2015.

Any word if there’s plans to spruce up the outside of the parking garages itself(whatever that would even mean). Perhaps some kind of light designs at night, gigantic images of disney characters, or sign names/logos of the buildings and stores it’s blocking? Just curious, because I always recall how beautiful Downtown Disney was at night, when you could see all the lights illuminating the sky, or even just during the day could appreciate some of grand buildings designs driving by. Now I’m not arguing that the parking garages aren’t need, ive been there enough to know they DEFINITELY are, lol…But just wondering if the muted grey garages are forever going to be the new ‘look’ of disney springs, the first thing you see coming in.
