    Update - the large multi storey parking is now open. They are only using the ground and half of the next floor up at the moment. Congestion is a pain getting into the area until they get some more groundwork completed. We spoke to someone outside the car-park, who says they hope to have that done by christmas.

    Nice feature inside the car-park (when it's working) is there are some lights above each parking space, which will show red when the space is occupied and green when it's available.

    The old nightclub area is mostly fenced off and it will be next year before all of this is completed.

    One new feature (when it's completed) they have built a "bridge" to connect the rain-forest cafe end of the area back to the lego/T-Rex restaurant.

    One feature that Sarah is disappointed with - the free Ghiradelli chocolates that they hand out, are now the "mini" size.

    Do you think there'll be a charge to use the car park?

    I wondered about that or a time limit, as I think some people park all day and use Disney transport to the parks (via hotels) to avoid paying at the parks. When we first went to Florida about 14 years ago, it was easy to find a space at Downtown and it is really only in the last 5 years that parking has become difficult.

    Good call on the 5 years. There were 46.6 million visitors to Orlando in 2009 and it has increased steadily to 59 million visitors in 2013. All those extra millions looking for parking spaces!
