Parking trams

The ongoing saga of parking trams continues after what will be three years in March of theme park shut downs due to COVID-19. Though Disney Parks brought back bus and monorail transportation fairly swiftly, many were baffled when parking tram transportation continued to be unavailable, even as other parts of the Walt Disney World resort opened up. 

It was in December 2021 that parking trams returned to the Magic Kingdom and it was promised that they would return to the remaining three Walt Disney World theme parks by the end of 2022.

Well, on May 27, 2022 parking trams returned to Disney's Animal Kingdom. The trams once again transported guests from the parking lot to the park entrance and then back again at the end of a long day in the park. This was certainly welcome news for guests at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

But, now at the start of 2023 parking trams have still not returned to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios and we are not quite sure why? We are hopeful of a return at EPCOT due to new signage being installed which includes reference to parking trams. As of yet, Disney has not confirmed a new timeline for the returnn of parking trams to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios but we are definitely expecting news in the coming weeks.

We will keep you posted on our news and Facebook pages. Do you miss parking trams at EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios or have you simply got used to life without them? Let us know your thoughts by leaving us a comment below.
