We tried again on a Sunday at around 2 p.m., and although cars were allowed to drive on Magic Way, the entrance to Pixar Pals was blocked off with traffic cones.
Our third time testing this parking tip, however, actually worked! On a Monday at around 8 a.m., the entrance to the Pixar Pals parking lot was open, and we were able to bypass a long line at Mickey & Friends by using the Pixar Pals entrance on Magic Way.
Overall, in our experience, this parking hack is a toss-up. If you get lucky and Pixar Pals is open in the morning when you drive to Disneyland Resort, it can save you a lot of time. But if you happen to drive there and the Pixar Pals parking entrance is closed, then you will spend even more time driving all the way back around to Mickey & Friends.
