    Which drop off is closer to the parks entrance?

    Hi there, Charles. Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for taking the time to stop by with your question for us.

    I’m delighted to see that you’ll be heading to the Happiest Place on Earth soon. There is so much to see and do at the Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, and I’m excited you’ll get to experience the Disney Magic at the end of the month.

    There are two Guest pickup and drop-off locations available at the Disneyland Resort: Downtown Disney District and Harbor Boulevard. The Harbor Boulevard drop-off is closer to the theme park entrance. However, even if you get dropped off at Downtown Disney District, it’s a nice walk to the theme park entrance as well! I love peeking through the windows of Marceline's Confectionery and seeing all the too-pretty-to-eat creations. There are also two Starbucks locations to conveniently grab your morning Joe before hitting the theme parks.  

    For Harbor Boulevard, you can enter the drop-off area from the right southbound lane on South Harbor Boulevard. This is located between South Manchester Avenue and Disney Way.  

    For Downtown Disney District, you can take Magic Way from Disneyland Drive, then turn left at Downtown Drive. Just follow the signs to the drop-off area. There’s a 15-minute grace period and after that, standard parking rates will apply.

    I hope this information is helpful for you, Charles. Please don’t hesitate to write us again if you have further questions.

    See ya real soon,
