    We will be driving to the contemp and will be taking our own van to AK and HS. We have handicap parking for our son and was wondering how long of a walk will it be from the handicap parking. We have dining resv at both parks and wonder how early to leave

    Hi, Tara!

    The Handicap Parking areas at both Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom are at the very front of the parking lots.  Make sure the cast members see your permit so they direct you to the best parking available.  From these reserved spots, you should only have a walk of 5 - 7 minutes to the front gates of the parks.  Allow about 20 minutes drive time, plus time to get to your restaurant.  (I always allow myself about 45 minutes to an hour in total, I prefer to be early and not rush!)

    Wishing you and your family a wonderful stay at Walt Disney World!
