This is the week! Our Rock Your Disney Side 24-hour event is almost here. Today I’ve got a special message for those planning to drive to the Disneyland Resort on May 23.

On May 23, you’ll have more reasons than using the HOV lane to carpool. During the “Rock Your Disney Side” 24-hour event, we will offer the following incentives for cars with four or more passengers who are parking at a Disneyland Resort parking lot:

  • All guests and Annual Passholders without pre-paid parking will receive a discounted parking rate of $8 (for a standard vehicle) when arriving with four or more passengers.
  • Annual Passholders with pre-paid parking will receive one voucher per vehicle for one free popcorn scoop and one bottled beverage, redeemable at any Disneyland or Disney California Adventure park outdoor vending cart. At least one passenger in the vehicle must be a valid Annual Passholder with pre-paid parking privileges.
  • All Annual Passholders and their passengers can also receive a special Toy Story commuter button. At least one passenger in the vehicle must be a valid Annual Passholder. And don’t be late – button quantity is limited and will be given while supplies last!

Remember – each car must contain at least four passengers, oversize vehicles are not eligible for a carpool discount, parking is subject to capacity and these benefits are subject to restrictions or change without notice. Start finding your carpool buddies now, and come Rock Your Disney Side with us on May 23!

Does each valid Annual Passholder with pre-paid parking in the car get the Popcorn and Drink voucher, or is it just one per car?

 

Erin Glover on May 19th, 2014 at 4:05 pm

Good question, Hastin – It will be one voucher per vehicle. I’ve clarified the bullet above. Thanks for catching that.

Thanks, Erin! My cousin and I have been anxiously waiting for this info. (We’re button fiends). Any chance the design will be released beforehand?

 

Erin Glover on May 19th, 2014 at 2:29 pm

I don’t have that at the moment, but I’ll see what I can do!

Dinah on May 19th, 2014 at 1:41 pm

Oh, and I love the extra, new incentives for this year. Thank you!

Theresa on May 19th, 2014 at 1:47 pm

Thanks for the carpool information! If only I had three other people coming with me…

Is camping out overnight going to be an option this year, if we want to avoid the morning traffic altogether?

 

Erin Glover on May 19th, 2014 at 4:06 pm

Yes – guests will be able to line up beginning at 12 a.m. on May 23. We’ll have more details soon!

UPDATE: We’ve posted line information here!

Will there be any incentives for people who walk to the resort for the event?

 

Erin Glover on May 19th, 2014 at 4:58 pm

I’m sorry, but only carpool incentives will be offered.

Bob on May 19th, 2014 at 1:59 pm

Smart! I’m sure parking is at a premium during popular events such as this. I wish I was going to be there!

DeAna on May 19th, 2014 at 2:22 pm

Great incentives for people to carpool and good looking out for our Earth! :) But what about “undersized” vehicles? I own a very practical Smart Car which only seats two people, will I still be eligible for the incentives?

 

Erin Glover on May 19th, 2014 at 4:59 pm

Sorry DeAna, but this applies only to cars that contain four or more people.

DeAna on May 19th, 2014 at 2:34 pm

After re-reading the original post, I realize this is more of a parking space issue than a environmental issue. I got a little too environmentally excited reading the line “you’ll have more reasons than using the HOV lane to carpool.”. In any case, I would understand if “undersized” vehicles do not qualify for the incentives. They are great for the Earth-not so great for maximizing parking spaces. {Unless as a driver, you are fitting into that tiny tiny space that no other man made car could possibly fit into!} :)

Norma from CA on May 19th, 2014 at 3:00 pm

Hi Erin, are there any incentives for pedestrians? Or guests at your the Disneyland Resorts or good neighbors hotels checking in the day before the Rock you Disney Side 24 hour event?

 

Erin Glover on May 19th, 2014 at 5:00 pm

I’m sorry, Norma. We’re only offering carpool incentives.

Kevin on May 19th, 2014 at 3:20 pm

This may seem a dumb question, but it may be helpful to clarify whether 4 passengers actually means 4 occupants or 5 occupants in total (1 driver plus 4 passengers!)

As written, it literally means 5 people per car, but it could be easily assumed that 4 people per car is good.

 

Erin Glover on May 19th, 2014 at 5:00 pm

Good question, Kevin – I meant four people total, including the driver. Sorry for the confusion!

11

Gregory on May 19th, 2014 at 3:26 pm

Just like last year – those of us who save Disney parking spaces by driving to the area and taking a bus to Disneyland get nothing.

12

Gregory on May 19th, 2014 at 3:35 pm

And, “four or more passengers” is actually ambiguous – think it means at three passengers in addition to the driver.

 

Erin Glover on May 19th, 2014 at 5:01 pm

That is correct – four total, including the driver. Sorry for the confusion.

13

Dinah on May 19th, 2014 at 3:42 pm

Awesome, thanks for checking!

14

Dan on May 19th, 2014 at 4:52 pm

I ride my bike and take my bus to the park. :(

15

Francis on May 19th, 2014 at 6:07 pm

Does it count if it’s me, my wife and 2 kids under 3 years old?

 

Erin Glover on May 19th, 2014 at 7:42 pm

Yes, they count!

 

Erin Glover on May 19th, 2014 at 8:30 pm

Yes, they count!

16

Joshua on May 19th, 2014 at 6:23 pm

So excited for this! Thanks for sharing this Erin!

17

Dustin on May 19th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

Just seeing the title of this post made me laugh, since I’ve heard how horrendous traffic gets at the 24-Hour events at DLR. Good thinking Erin!

18

Janelle on May 19th, 2014 at 8:23 pm

Is there going to be more information on when and where to park if we are camping out the night before?

 

Erin Glover on May 20th, 2014 at 11:58 am

Coming soon, Janelle!

19

Linda on May 19th, 2014 at 8:23 pm

any tips for someone arriving after midnight on Friday night/Saturday morning for the last 6 hours of the 24 hour event?

 

Erin Glover on May 20th, 2014 at 11:58 am

Stay tuned, Linda – I’ll have those details soon.

UPDATE: We’ve posted line information here!

20

Janelle on May 19th, 2014 at 8:23 pm

And where would we wait if we are camping out the night before?

 

Erin Glover on May 20th, 2014 at 12:00 pm

Details coming soon, Janelle!\

UPDATE: We’ve posted line information here!

Daantje on May 19th, 2014 at 10:03 pm

What time does the parking structure open on Friday May 23rd?

 

Erin Glover on May 20th, 2014 at 1:29 pm

Mickey & Friends will open at 5 am. If you plan to arrive before 5 am, please park in the Simba lot.

22

Brandy on May 20th, 2014 at 8:20 am

HOW EARLY WILL Toy Story & Mickey & Friends Parking OPEN for the big day?
Especially if there are those who are planning on getting there super early.

 

Erin Glover on May 20th, 2014 at 1:28 pm

Lots will open at 5 am, but guests arriving before 5 am should park in the Simba lot.

23

Marisol on May 20th, 2014 at 7:21 pm

Will guests that wish to return at 9am on Saturday have to leave the parking lot that they were parked in during the 24 hour event?

24

Sierra on May 20th, 2014 at 10:02 pm

Will there be any carpool incentives at the Orlando park?

25

Bernadine on May 20th, 2014 at 11:30 pm

Does this offer apply to motorcycles or motorcycles with 2 riders? Also, why is motorcycle parking the same price as a full size vehicle, but there are special smaller parking spaces for motorcycles?

26

shauna on May 21st, 2014 at 12:48 pm

As an Annual pass holder I have parking on my pass, but what I am trying to understand and get an answer to is we still have to pay additional for parking? If so, how do we pre-purchase parking for the event? Thank you.

27

L Nathan on May 21st, 2014 at 5:30 pm

Where is the Simba Lot? Is it near the Pumba Lot or by the Mickey & Friends Lot?

 

Erin Glover on May 21st, 2014 at 7:02 pm

The Simba lot entrance is located on Disneyland Drive, near Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel.

28

Juliana on May 21st, 2014 at 9:14 pm

I didn’t think there was handicapped parking in the simba lot. Where can I park before 5am if I am handicapped?

29

Amanda on May 23rd, 2014 at 1:46 am

Even if you are AP pass holder do you pay parking?

30

Diana on May 23rd, 2014 at 5:59 pm

Are there enough commuter pins to last about 9pm?
