    Where is pick up and drop off for Magic Kingdom?

    Greetings, Janet, and welcome to planDisney! As a fellow Floridian, I'd like to thank you for stopping by. It looks like you plan to visit Magic Kingdom Park soon, so let's talk about transportation and drop-off areas for this theme park.

    While Magic Kingdom Park isn't an island, it is nestled among some beautiful lakes. This keeps the park in its enchanted bubble but adds a layer of transportation to maneuver. And since there are many modes you can use to get around Walt Disney World Resort, let's break it down.

    First, the parking lot for Magic Kingdom is at the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC). This is also a hub for the monorail, buses, and boats. If you drive yourself, you'll park here and take either the monorail or a ferryboat to the theme park's entrance. This is also where taxis and rideshares will drop you off for a day of fun. Picking up guests is the same; if you're retrieving a friend from Magic Kingdom, you'll be directed to the rideshare waiting area at the TTC. 

    If you utilize the complimentary bus service, your bus will drop you at its designated terminal close to the theme park entrance. It's a short walk from the bus stop to the Magic Kingdom scan-in points.

    If you opt to pay for Minnie Van service, these whimsical vehicles typically drop guests near the bus stations, too. The advantage of being dropped at the bus area is bypassing the monorail or boat across the lake. 

    I hope you get a chance to hop aboard the monorail during your visit. Riding this sleek train always makes me think of Walt Disney and his vision for his theme parks. I think he'd smile at the thought of guests utilizing this futuristic mode of transportation around Walt Disney World.

    Janet, thanks again for this great question. Please come back to planDisney, and have a fabulous visit!

    Magic awaits,
