    If we are using Uber/Lyft for an After Hours event, how long does the Transportation Center stay open for Uber/Lyft guest pickups? We want to make sure we have transportation if we are not staying at a Disney resort.

    Hi there Jill, and wishing you a very Royal Welcome to planDisney!

    There's really nothing like experiencing a Disney After Hours event for the added thrills and excitement of the adventures you'll have after dark. If you're anything like us, we enjoy staying right up until the very end to make the most of the experience and close out the park!

    You'll be happy to hear that after our most recent After Hours experience, we let the Transportation Cast Members know that we intended to stay as late as possible and asked a question similar to yours. They let us know that at the current time, complimentary Resort Transportation to the Disney Ticket and Transportation Center typically continues for one to two hours following park closing time at the end of late-night events. In the event that a particular mode of transportation such as the Walt Disney World Monorail System or the Disney Skyliner may end service early, alternate complimentary bus transportation is made available.

    Many fellow Disney After Hours attendees enjoy the freedom to stay at neighboring properties that might not necessarily be a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, and like taking advantage of rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft. In our experience, we find that waiting for rides at the Disney Ticket and Transportation Center may take significantly longer at the end of the night and may leave you exposed to the elements with limited shelter.

    To avoid this, I recommend heading over to the nearby Disney's Polynesian Village Resort or Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for a much more comfortable wait. Whether you need reliable wireless internet access or a visually stunning place to stay out of the weather, we frequently see other guests taking advantage of scheduling their rideshare pickups from many Resort lobbies. (Depending on where you'll be staying, you may experience lower priced rides and perhaps more convenient pickups if you take advantage of complimentary bus transportation to a Resort that is closer to your end destination and set it as your pickup location.)

    As I always say for any evening expeditions: when standing somewhere late at night, search for cover and ample light!

    May you find your way back safely on your adventures after dark!
