QUICK parking help needed!

A friend is in SoCal and just decided to visit DL tomorrow! They will be coming from the south, traveling north on I-5... where do they park?? I have never parked, always stayed at a hotel.

Help please!! The website directions are sending them to a lot off Harbor? Not Mickey and Friends (isn;t that the one by DLH?)

Also, when do the parking trams start? It's a 9am open, they are planning to get there by 8 I hope (DCA does have early hours at 8, but only for on-site I guess).... are parking trams running then? Too far to walk I think right?

THANK YOU!!!!

Kim

Hi Kim,

You can park in the Toy Story Parking Lot
Exit Orangewood turn left or West
Right on Harbor
Parking lot will be on the right side, across from the Hilton and Convention Center, before you get to Katella

You can Park at the Mickey and Friends Parking Lot
5 north exit Disneyland Drive, follow Theme Park parking signs

It sounds like the directions are sending you to the Toy Story lot, which I believe is easier to get to when approaching the resort from the south. The Toy Story lot has buses and is oftentimes a little faster than the Mickey and Friends parking structure. Both parking lots open one hour before park opening, so you should be fine.
