    Is there a cost for picking up and dropping off family members at the park's designated drop off/pick up areas?

    Hello Gary! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I have never had to use the designated drop off when driving Family or Friends to Walt Disney World Resort myself, I can never seem to resist the urge to enter the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks when getting so close.

    For those who are able to escape the allure at the "House of Mouse" each of the 4 Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks accommodate drivers with a complimentary and easy-to-use designated drop off system. 

    When you arrive at the Cast Member at the Parking Gates for the Theme Park in question, simply inform them that you are dropping off Guests and they will direct you to follow the signs leading you to the convenient Drop Off areas. There is no charge to those dropping off Guests for a day of Endless Magic who are not joining in the Endless Magic.

    Once on property, all Guests are free to use the Complimentary Resort Transportation provided by Walt Disney World Resort, if the Guests you drop off require to reach any further destination or you would like to arrange an alternate meeting spot for pickup. 

    Remember to plan a meeting spot with the Guests you drop off at the Pick-up area to make it easy to find them after their Disney day.

    Good Luck!
