Check out location of parking areas and the 3 entry gates before traveling to the venue. Handicap parking is at the main gate and closest walk to the entry gate.

Many restaurants to dine at Westfield Mall, Santa Anita which is across from The Arboretum. Make reservations for an early dinner if your Moonlight Forest entry time is 7:00 PM

Make sure to allow extra time for parking - it's crowded and took us about 30 minutes of waiting in line to enter parking lot and find someone leaving. If you can park elsewhere and walk over (maybe the mall?), it would be a better option.

Go early (like 4-4:30) to park nearby. For later arrival overflow parking is at Santa Anita racetrack and buses transport you back and forth. We didn’t know where to go and ended up driving around for an hour. When were finally told, it was easy.

Parking was easy. We were going to eat elsewhere but ate there - they had 4 food trucks and all were different. Food was good but a bit pricey and picnic tables to sit on. Be sure to ask for a map!
