PHOTOS: Disney Confirms Expansion of Hollywood Studios Parking Lot

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Last week, we reported about the possibility of a parking garage being added at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It appears we had the location wrong, but a parking structure may still be in the long-term plans for the park down the road. In the meantime, Disney has confirmed an expansion of the parking lot in some internal communications this week.

We also noticed that an entire mass of trees adjacent to the Hollywood Studios parking lot was removed just last week:

These photos were taken when driving in from the World Drive entrance of the park.

Behind this fence once stood hundreds of trees, all of which were removed in one day last week.

Currently, Disney is constructing a temporary conveyor structure across World Drive to shift soil across the road and into the park. Disney has stated that this is a multi-year project and they will be sharing more information on this project soon. Now, whether this simply means that the parking lot will grow or that a parking garage is coming remains to be seen, but we will keep you in the loop as best we can.

We do know that a new car entrance will be built somewhere on this site, as Disney revealed those plans some time ago.
