    I want to pick up my friend that is visiting from out of town that is staying in the epcot resort. Would I have to pay for parking to just pick him up then bring him back later because i know there are designated pick up/drop off areas but i have no clue

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Allen. I'm so glad you stopped by!

     How wonderful that you'll soon be seeing a friend from out of town. I'm happy to tell you that you won't need to pay for parking at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks or hotels when dropping off or picking up your friend. Simply tell the parking lot attendant your plans and you'll be directed where to go. 

     If you're looking for something unique to do with your friend, I suggest heading to Disney Springs. With incredible options for dining, entertainment, and shopping, it certainly fits the bill. The Edison, a brand new restaurant in Disney Springs, is the perfect place for you and your pal to catch up over delicious appetizers and drinks.

     Wishing you the most magical visit with your friend!
