We went to Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney, formerly Disney Village) a couple of months ago to pick up our new passes, and I was most thrilled by the parking garage!  That's not meant to disparage the rest of the site, but I was happy to find some place in America that has adopted this Swiss custom.  (Okay, I don't know if the system is Swiss or not, but Switzerland is where I first saw this useful technology.)

It's a smart parking garage.  Sensors know which spaces are open and which are not, and lighted signs direct drivers to the open spaces.  It sure beats driving up and down all the rows!

I bet Disney Springs didn't adopt the standard size for Swiss parking. I still can't park our minivan between two cars . . .

I feel claustrophobic just thinking about it.

They're putting new sewer lines in our neighborhood, and are actually using Swiss-sized construction vehicles. They're really cute.
