Why is it that more parks do not invest in parking garages, to allow for expansion of attractions? plus, nice to have cars in the shade.
For Disney? Nah, about 2-3, I'd say. Remember the exorbitant fees Disney Parks and Resorts have to pay Disney for the use of IP, so that a ton of money can be transferred between divisions as tax-exempt expenses and not as profits.Yup, Disney's last big multi level parking cost about $100,000,000.
That is a lot of wacky worms.
Fun Spot Orlando's 'master plan' map they have posted in the arcade showed them eventually adding a small one in the lot across the street from their main lot. Will it happen? Who knows. Myrtle Beach Pavilion had one (RIP).Outside of Disney and Universal, does any park even have them? Maybe Lotte World?
When I was at Discovery Kingdom a few years ago they were adding Solar Covers in their lot, had like 1/3 done. Legoland FL has them too, I was shocked Disney World hasn't added them during all their parking lot make overs they've done in the last few years, although they do have 2 massive solar farms (one on property next to Epcot and one a little out of the way behind AK)
This though. The solar potential for sprawling parking lots is massive, not to mention providing common courtesy of sun/rain shade for guest’s cars.
This would be amazing, especially at my home park SFFT. My reason for bringing up a parking garage was because they seem to be running out of room for major rides. However, I would be super happy to see some shading in the current lot with solar panels.
