    How can my relatives pick us up at the AofA Resort?We have family that lives in the area and are not staying with us at the resort. Will they need a parking pass or just our name and hotel room number to be able to park at the resort?

    Hello Marisela, and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question.

    I have to say that I had to do a little research to find the correct answer for you since I typically use Disney’s Magical Express and Disney’s complimentary bus, boat and monorail transportation while staying on Disney property. I actually spoke to a Cast Member at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort to get the correct procedure for you. First, you will want to alert the front desk that you will be having family or friends who are coming to the resort to pick you up. Next, you will want to make sure whoever is picking you up has the resort reservation name and room number in order to gain access to the resort. Your family will be able to meet you with that information.

    If you leave Disney property with them or visit Disney Springs or a theme park, upon your return, you will tap your MagicBand to gain access to your resort again. This would also be the same process if you were to use a ride-sharing service like Uber or Lyft during your visit. I hope that helps to answer your question. If not or if you need any more help before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
