Jeff Kober provides a good tip over at *Mouse Planet*:
> The area north and west of Cirque du Soleil is really the best location to park. There are usually more spaces available there than anywhere else. And since the marina exists close to House of Blues, you can walk from one end to the other, then return using the boat shuttle from the Marketplace marina near the Rainforest Cafe. No matter what time of day, this is probably your best choice when parking at Downtown Disney, and when wanting to walk the length of the experience.
This will be my plan until construction is completed.[^fn1]
[^fn1]: Unless the boats stop running, of course.
