ANAHEIM, Calif.—Disneyland Park goers will no longer have to walk nearly a mile from their cars to the front gate as the theme park prepares for the return of the parking trams on Feb. 23, according to an announcement by Disney on social media.

The theme park announced the news on Feb. 10 with an Instagram post saying, “Going into February 23 like…” and an attached video of the beloved tram moving through the parking garage.

After months of having to walk back to their cars after a long day at the park, Disney fans—some referred to the walk as “brutal” on social media—were instantly ecstatic for the trams’ long-awaited return.

“Yesssss!” Jorae Hernandez wrote on Instagram. “Nothing worse than walking the tram route at night after a long day. It’s like the walk of misery!”

The parking trams transport visitors from the Pixar Pals and Mickey and Friends garages to Downtown Disney—an outdoor shopping center and a short walk to the front gates of the theme park.

While Disneyland fanatics have been missing out on the trams since the theme park closed in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, visitors can expect a few updates.

Work on the trams has not been idle as theme park workers have installed new sensors in the pavement and repaved the loading zone, according to MiceChat, a news outlet specialized in Disney-related news and events.

For those who enjoyed the extra steps, the walk to and from the parking structure will still be accessible.
