    I need to pick my daughter up in the bus parking area at Animal Kingdom. Can I do so without out having to pay to enter the parking lot? We will be continuing our vacation so she is not returning to Ohio with her high school band. Any advice is appreciated

    Hi there Joyce!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I have fond memories of visiting Walt Disney World Resort with my high school band (many years ago!)

    I am happy to let you know there is a drop-off/pick-up area at each Walt Disney World Theme Park, including Disney's Animal Kingdom.  As you enter the parking lot, let the Cast Member at the parking booth know that you are picking up a guest.  They will direct you to the pick-up location.  You will not be charged a fee to enter.  The pick-up location will be near the front entrance to Animal Kingdom.  If you or your daughter need help finding the correct spot, just ask a friendly Cast Member for assistance.

    I hope that helps!  Please feel free to visit the Moms Panel again if you have additional questions.

    Have a wonderful vacation.
