In anticipation of the large crowds Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge will be bringing to the Disneyland Resort, the Anaheim Planning Commission agreed to allow Disneyland to add an additional 455 parking spots to the Toy Story Lot located off Harbor Blvd. This will bring the total number of parking spots to 5,378.

According to the Orange County Register,

As part of the agreement with the city, Disneyland will replace 6-foot walls separating the parking area from nearby apartment complexes with a 16-foot-tall, sound wall made of masonry blocks and will landscape with rows of Canary Island Pine trees. Disney plans to add new lighting for the parking lot and a ramp that would connect to its tram depot.

The extra space at the southeastern corner of the parking lot will serve only as an overflow parking area, otherwise it will continue to be used as a storm water detention basin. On the days it rains, guests will not be allowed to park in that section.

This news comes not long after the planned Eastern Gateway project was put on hold due to concerns from neighboring businesses and hotels. That plan was vital to preparing the Resort for the crowds expected, but now it is unclear as to when that infrastructure might be built.
