Disneyland is launching a rideshare partnership with Lyft just as the reservation-only period for the popular new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge comes to an end and an influx of additional vehicles is expected to stream into the Anaheim theme park resort.

Disneyland announced that the Lyft rideshare partnership will begin today, June 18, just a few days before the Galaxy’s Edge reservation-only period ends June 23. Disney is rushing to complete a new parking structure in time to absorb the anticipated increase in visitors.

Taxis, Uber and other rideshare operators will continue to be able to use the Disneyland pickup/dropoff area on Harbor Boulevard, Lyft officials said. Competitors won’t be able to drop off and pick up riders at designated Lyft locations that will be marked by signs.

“O.C. locals and tourists can say goodbye to the days of parking ‘far, far away’ to visit Disneyland and the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge,” Lyft said in a prepared statement.

The “far, far away” 10,000-space Mickey and Friends parking structure is approximately 1/2 mile by tram from the Disneyland entrance and 3/4 mile by foot through Downtown Disney. The 6,500-space Pixar Pals parking structure is expected to open next door sometime between late June and late July. The Toy Story lot is approximately 3/4 mile by Disney shuttle bus.

Disneyland has designated visitor, taxi and rideshare service pick-up and drop-off areas in the Harbor Boulevard drop-off lot (north of Disney Way) and the Downtown Disney parking lot (with a 15-minute grace period).

In January, Disneyland raised daily parking rates 25 percent to $25, making ride sharing for theme park visitors in central Orange County an increasingly attractive alternative. For a fee, the ride sharing services eliminate the time-consuming hassles of parking trams and garages while offering the allure of a door-to-door driver service at your beck and call.

Lyft has been working with Walt Disney World since 2017 on Disney’s Minnie Van service, which has transported more than 1 million visitors at the Florida resort.

Locally, Lyft has rideshare partnerships with the Honda Center, Hollywood Bowl and Santa Monica Pier. In recent years, San Clemente has partnered with Lyft to fill gaps in bus routes. Nationally, the rideshare company has entered into partnerships with the Cleveland Indians, Hilton hotels and the Denver area’s Red Rocks amphitheater.

The new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge debuted May 31 at Disneyland. During the reservation-only period, Disneyland is restricting visitors to a 4-hour time limit in Galaxy’s Edge through June 23. Starting June 24, Disneyland visitors who want to explore Galaxy’s Edge will need to log into the Disneyland app to secure a boarding pass in a virtual queuing system.
