Disney intends to construct a transportation hub, a massive parking structure and a pedestrian bridge over Harbor Boulevard connecting them with Disneyland and Disney California Adventure ahead of the opening of “Star Wars” land in its signature theme park.

It sure works at Universal. This is a good thing for visitors.
The first time I went to Disneyland it was a trip down a busy street full of various businesses and hotels to get to the auto entrance. The second time most of that was gone. There was a second gate, different parking, and the resort area seemed better planned around itself. Really, it was nothing like I remembered.
It's interesting to learn how they've managed over time to aquire properties and shift things around to expand the area.

Back when, I remember hearing of grumblings by neighbors and business owners in Anaheim. Something about Disney sucking up everything in the neighborhood as they make improvements. I wonder if that's still the case?

I saw grumbling about how far it was from the entrance without a tram or peoplemover. We usually stay a little further up the street at Motel 6 and walk the 20 minutes to the entrance. If you do not have mobility issues, it isn't too bad, especially when you look at the total time you will spend being mobile in the park. I wonder if they'll host a scooter rental outlet at the new garage? In any case, I'm guessing the walk won't be much more than the walk from Mickey and Friends to the tram added to the walk from the tram stop at the entry plaza to the entrance.
