Parking at the happiest place on Earth should be easier the find in the future.

Disneyland has released details of a long-proposed parking structure, a transportation hub and a new pedestrian bridge on the eastern end of the theme park resort.

The project, located east of the resort near the 5 Freeway, includes a 6,800-space parking structure and a transportation hub where buses, shuttles, taxis and other vehicles can drop off park visitors. A pedestrian bridge over Harbor Boulevard connects the resort to the parking structure and the transportation hub.

The structure, along with the 14-acre Star Wars Land expansion project under construction, is part of a $1-billion investment promised to the city of Anaheim in exchange for a 30-year exemption on an entertainment tax. Construction of the project, dubbed the Eastern Gateway, will begin next year.
