    Hi! Where is the drop off area at Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ethan!

    It really couldn't be more convenient to be dropped off by a friend or a rideshare service at one of the theme parks. There is a lane of traffic in the parking lots dedicated to drop-offs and it will lead you straight to where you need to go. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, the guest drop-off location is right up front next to the brand new Disney Skyliner station, just steps away from the security screening area. You'll tell the Cast Member at the parking booth that you're being dropped off and they will direct you to stay in the right-hand lane. Follow that lane and follow the signs and you'll be led straight there.

    The parking lot at Disney's Animal Kingdom is currently under construction to make it easier and more convenient for guests to get to and from their parking spots so the drop-off location may change when construction is complete, but at the moment, you'll follow pretty much the same procedure as you would at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Let the parking attendant know that you're being dropped off and they will direct you to stay to the right, which will lead you straight to the drop-off area. From there, it's a short walk to the front gate and your security screening! If you want to be picked back up at the end of the day you can exit to the left when you're leaving the theme park, but if you decide to take a bus instead, you will exit to the right.

    I hope this answers your question, Ethan, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
