    We are going to WDW this weekend as a last minute trip. We are staying off property and want to get an Uber/Lyft to go to and from the parks. Question is, how early can Uber/Lyft drivers drop us off? Thank you in advance.

    Hi Nina! Welcome to planDisney!

    What a fun last-minute trip you have coming up! My family has done a few spontaneous trips to the Walt Disney World Resort and had the most fun every time. With summer on its way out and fall beginning soon, your trip will be the perfect way to transition into the new season. I'm so happy for you!

    The parking lots open at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks about 45 minutes before each theme park's opening hours. I've used a ride-sharing service to get to the theme parks a few times this year and each time we arrived about 50-55 minutes before the theme park was scheduled to open and had to wait a little bit before the lots opened. A handful of times they opened just a couple of minutes early, but mostly it was right at 45 minutes before the theme park opened. As soon as the parking lot opens, ride-sharing services can enter and they will head to the passenger drop-off area which is usually close to the entrance. You'll also get picked up in the same area, so take note of the location before heading into the theme park.

    I hope this helps, Nina! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
