    We are going to Disneyland and are getting dropped off. Do we have to pay for parking to get dropped off?

    Hi Natalie! Thanks for dropping by planDisney.

    I have good news for you: There is no cost associated with dropping a Guest off at Disneyland Resort. You can be dropped off at Downtown Disney District or by the Main Entrance to the theme parks. I can walk you through the process.

    To be dropped off for Downtown Disney District take Magic Way from Disneyland Drive. You'll turn left at Downtown Drive and simply follow the signs to the drop-off area. When it comes time to be picked up, be aware that if your driver is waiting in this area, it's free until after 15 minutes when standard parking rates will then apply.

    If you'd prefer to be dropped off or picked up by the Main Entrance, you'll be using Harbor Boulevard. The drop-off area is on the right southbound lane of South Harbor Boulevard located between South Manchester Avenue and Disney Way. Again, while briefly waiting in this area is allowed, parking is not, so you'll want to time your pickup so your driver isn't waiting for too long or they'll have to move.

    Your visit is right around the corner and I'm sure you're getting excited! As you're planning your day, check out the Disney Parks Blog for all the official updates on what's new in the parks. There are bound to be some fun seasonal treats or merchandise that you want to snag while you're there. You'll be arriving right as Tiana's Palace Restaurant is opening! Maybe you'll want to be one of the first to enjoy the new menu and inspired design in New Orleans Square at Disneyland Park.

    Have a magical day!
