Earlier this week on a research expedition it was noted that Disney was putting a lot of effort into the tram stations at the Transportation and Ticket Center. The Disney Parks Blog has now confirmed that these changes are part of the work to overhaul the Magic Kingdom parking lots, assigning them new names, colors, and hero or villain themes.
Disney’s photo of a new lot sign:
The new red tram station, pictured below, will be for the Villains Lot, which will have sections named after characters like Zurg, Jafar, Hook, Scar, Cruella, and Ursula.
The blue tram station, pictured below, will be for the Heroes Lot, which will have sections named after characters like Woody, Aladdin, Peter Pan, Simba, Mulan, and Rapunzel.
Final signage should be updated in the parking lot soon. As of today the Villains Lot and tram station are reportedly finished. In theory guests going forward only need to remember if they are in a villain/hero, red/blue, or a particular character name to narrow down the possible lots their cars are in. Parking cast members have reported that the old names caused lots of confusion over which duck, dwarf, or mouse someone was parked in.
The fine folks over at Discussion Kingdom are letting us share the following photos they took today:
