I am mostly worried about how this would have gone if a family was walking up to those steps. With you being low, and the car being high, visibility would have been obstructed. I hope they put in a rail for the future.

Very relieved i don't see any reference to injuries.

I agree. It could have been serious. I know that Iíve walked up those steps more than once.

I do not -- I try to visit briefly whenever I can.
In recent years that's meant taking a boat from MK.
A couple years ago I stopped by the DVC desk in the WL lobby just to say hi, and got roped into a tour of CCV, including a 1BR and a Cabin!
Totally sweet!

Iíve thought about this since I first heard about it. Iím sorry. No way that was a stupid mistake. Stupid, yes. But very impaired cognitive functioning for some reason. Itís not even confusing an exit ramp for an entry ramp or going down the left fork instead of the right fork.

Itís a blatant, hard dog-leg turn. That was one confused driver for some reason.

Now the story would have really had a twist if they had valet parked.

Distracted? Texting and driving? Using a map app and got confused?

I honestly think one would have to be like alcohol impaired to do that. Seriously. I keep picturing this in my mind and that's the only thing I can think of.

Doesn't mean I didn't laugh when I saw it though

Probably just following GPS instructions. Seriously, thatís a likely possibility.
