    Hello, Is there a place at Epcot to pick up a family member without having to pay for parking? Thank you😊

    Hi Kathleen! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy! Only one more day until you arrive for your magical Disney vacation! I'm excited that you'll be spending some time at EPCOT and enjoying the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival that is currently taking place! This festival is packed with delicious outdoor kitchens and beautiful topiaries of your favorite Disney characters. 

    I have great news for you, Kathleen! You can certainly have a family member pick you up from EPCOT without having to pay the parking fee. In fact, this can be done at any of the four theme parks. When your family member arrives at the parking plaza, they'll need to explain to the Cast Member that they are only there for a pickup. The Cast Member will direct them where to go, which is typically where the ride-share services drop off and pick up. This area tends to be closer to the entrance, so Guests will not have to walk too far to get to this spot.

    In addition to all the festival activities taking place, you can't miss Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, which opened last year. This thrilling attraction has been a welcomed addition to this park and is a personal favorite of mine. This attraction is currently utilizing the Virtual Queue System, which you can enter starting at 7 AM each day. You can do so using your My Disney Experience App which you can download on your mobile device. If you happen to miss it at 7 AM, you'll have another chance at 1 PM to do so.

    Kathleen, I hope you have a magical time during your stay! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
