The new pedestrian bridge passing over Magic Way connects the outdoor shopping center to the new 6,500-space Pixar Pals garage and the 10,000-space Mickey & Friends parking structure.
>>Disney plans to open a new pedestrian bridge that will make it easier for visitors traveling by foot between the main entrances of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure and the parking garages.
The new Magic Way pedestrian bridge and the landscaped walkway connecting the two parking structures to Downtown Disney will open Friday, Sept. 13, according to Disneyland officials.<<
>>New digital signage on both sides of the bridge will be used to direct drivers arriving and departing to and from Downtown Disney and the Disneyland Hotel.
The project makes financial sense for Disney because the new pedestrian bridge will reduce the number of passengers using the parking trams and increase the number of potential shoppers passing through the Downtown Disney shopping district.
Disney expects the bridge to improve pedestrian safety and traffic circulation at Disneyland Drive and Magic Way.
The tram unloading area next to the garages is being reconfigured as part of the construction project.<<
