    I’m dropping off family members at Epcot on January 9, 2022. Where do I drop them off.

    Hi Thomas!

    Thank you for visiting us here at planDisney! During our family vacations to the Walt Disney World Resort, dropping off some of our group to the parks has become a norm. Everyone has their own specific must-do attraction, so we've become well versed in drop-off and pick-up spots around the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Thomas, it is very easy to drop off guests at the theme parks.  When you arrive at the parking gates to EPCOT, you can indicate to the Cast Members present that you are dropping off your family members and will not be staying in the parks.  They will give you instructions and ask you to follow clear markers that indicate the drop-off area.  This will be the same area in which you will pick up your guests, should they require a ride later in the afternoon/evening.  There will be Cast Members located throughout the parking lot should you need further assistance. Should you decide to park and enjoy the parks alongside your family, parking is at an additional cost. If you are an Annual Passholder, parking at the theme parks is an included perk. 

    EPCOT Planning Tip: Be sure to have your family take a photo of the drop-off spot or parking area if you are parking later during your visit. It makes it easier to refer to at the end of a day of merriment, and they won't worry about where they need to meet you, or where you might have parked.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
