  1. We absolutely LOVE the new parking garages. I’ve bragged about how cool they are. Since using them, we have discovered only one parking garage even “smarter” than the Disney garages. It was in a shopping center in Dallas. They have kiosks near the entrances that allow you to type in your license plate to find your car for you if you’d forgotten where you parked! Those cameras not only tell you when a space is available down the aisle, but can read your license plate!
    I mentioned to my husband that this would not work at WDW with so many rental cars and folks not knowing the rental car plates. He reminded me that the key/fob has the make and model of the car as well as the license plate! 😁

  2. While I love the new look of Disney Springs and some of the offerings, I do miss a little less hectic environment. Our last couple trips we had to arrive early in the day. If you came at night the parking garages were full and we turned around. I am glad for this new garage and direct access to the Marketplace, as sometimes I just want to go there as that area has my favorite stores.

  3. I fondly remember the sleepy little Disney Shopping village. It was a quiet place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of the parks and enjoy the quaint and unique shopping. In fact, many people spent their entire vacation not even knowing it was there. Now it’s just another park with massive crowds.

    1. A sleepy little village with minimal foot traffic = untapped revenue potential. At the time (early 80’s) the Contemporary, Polynesian and Fort Wilderness were the only Disney-operated accommodations- far fewer people on property as well.

        1. Though many elements remains and always will (Cinderella Castle and the monorail, to name a few), WDW circa 1984 holds many fond memories. I recall one morning my sister and I rode Space Mountain 6 or 7 times in a row while our parents enjoyed a leisurely breakfast.

          1. John, Those were good times. I also remember in about 1986 my wife and I were the only ones on the entire Spaceship Earth ride. We also rode thunder mountain 3 times without having to get off. There wasn’t more than 6 people in line. We often would leave the world showcase about 2 hours before closing and ride every ride in Future World. I also have several photos where we are standing at the beginning of Main Street and there is not a single person on the street between us and the castle. I almost feel guilty sharing these stories with today’s WDW fans.
