    I will be taking Uber or Lyft to the Animal Kingdom to stay at Jamba Village. Will I be able to get dropped off there?

    Hey There, Hi There, Ho There, Cathy!

    You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney.  Can you believe your upcoming stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is just around the corner? You're going to be checking in before you know it!  Since your arrival is only a few weeks away, it's the perfect time to finalize those last-minute vacation details.  If you haven't already done so, be sure to schedule your theme park reservations via the Disney Park Pass system, that way you won't miss a moment of the magic during your trip.  Now is also a great time to book advance dining reservations at your favorite Walt Disney World restaurants, including exciting new dining experiences like Space 220 at EPCOT and Steakhouse 71 at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  YUM!!!

    I've got great news, Cathy –– rideshare services like Uber or Lyft can drop-off right at the lobby of Disney Resorts Collection hotels as long as you are a Guest of that Resort or have a confirmed dining reservation at one of the Resort's restaurants.  When you arrive at the Animal Kingdom Lodge security gate, a Cast Member will ask to scan your MagicBand or Disney MagicMobile pass to confirm your reservation before sending you on your way.  It's quick and easy!  If you're traveling between Disney Resort hotels or don't want to wait for Walt Disney World transportation, rideshare services are also a great option for getting from place to place –– just be advised that theme parks and Disney Springs have designated drop-off locations that may not be directly in front of the entrance.  

    Thanks for visiting planDisney, Cathy!  If you think of any questions as your vacation approaches, please feel free to stop back by –– we're always glad to help!

    See Ya Real Soon,
