A new parking structure will be built on the Pinocchio Parking lot adjacent to the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure. As part of this project the tram stop will be rebuilt too. The first phase of preparations is now complete, they have re-configured/re-routed the existing tram route to accommodate the construction. For more pictures be sure to visit our full Disneyland Picture Set. For pictures of this project be sure to visit the Disneyland Construction Progress Section The trams now run in the opposite direction on the left side and travel to the right in a clockwise fashion. They drop off guests at two stops near the escalators/elevators. You are not allowed to board here. To the far left in the picture below along the hedge in the old tramway is the temporary walkway to reach Downtown Disney and the parks.
Here is a closer look. On the left the walkway. On the right the metal barriers and cones mark the queue space for the security line.
Here is a look from another angle. They are working on removing the old tram stop still.
A closer look at the new walkway. Notice they put a new path through the hedge near Magic Way.
Moving to the right they are starting site preparations on the former tram stop/security area. Fences and other things are being removed.
Continuing to the right you can see they have removed the asphalt and are working grading already on a large portion of the former Pinocchio Parking lot.
Here is a video over view of the site.
A closer look at the work. Looked like they were preparing to start hauling dirt away.
The items in the bottom/center of this picture appear to be the former security tents and structures.
Back to the earth movers. Only a couple were in action this afternoon.
From ground level the queue for security. They were holding the line outside and keeping short lines at the check points inside.
Guests queued up waiting for a tram on the right. The tram is arriving from the left and circles around. There are two pick up stops but only one in use this afternoon.
The stop on the left was not in use.
