Does anyone know the names of the parking lots (and the actual lots the correspond to)? The chat room members think we got all the names down, just not the actual lots they match up too.

They go in this order from the Employee Entrance to the Toll Plaza Entrance. England (Buses/Preferred Parking) France (Preferred Parking) Germany, Italy, Ireland. Overflow is Scotland and Bavaria I believe.

Yep.
  • England is the one across the bridge, near the Employee entrance.
  • France is the closest to the entrance, IE preferred parking.
  • Germany is the lot on the other side of the main entrance road from France.
  • Behind Germany is the Italy lot.
  • Furthest from the enterance is Ireland.
  • Scotland is the closer to the enterance of the auxillary parking lots.
  • Barvaria is the furthest from the enterance, but is closest to the exit of the auxillary lots.
The loading order for the lots is: Germany > Italy > Ireland > England (I think) > Scotland > Barvaria.

Sometime (early in the season especially) I noticed they skip filling Germany and go right to Italy.

Yeah there are many times (particularly on weekdays during the summer) that no one will be parked in Germany and both Italy and Ireland will be nearly full- I believe this is because Italy and Ireland share a tram drop-off/pick-up spot so it means less stops and less trams need to run.

Yeah I've seen them usually start parking in the farthest lot back (Ireland) and work their way up as needed.

Also, big thanks to everyone who posted the correct names. Helped greatly with the park map being made.

I think that's correct. I've also suspected that they do it to cut down on the foot traffic between the Germany and France lots. That can really slow down the incoming traffic and they often have to staff that spot with crossing guards.
