    Hi Wyatt! We will be using handicapped parking in the parks as my brother will be in his w/c. Exactly where is the handicapped lot at the four parks to the entrance? Bringing our plaquard. Thank you😊

    Hello there, Jaynee! Welcome back to planDisney! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop back by and asking another wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation question!

    I’m so excited to share more information with you regarding disability services for Guests at Walt Disney World Resort! I love providing other Guests with all the greatest tips and tricks for traveling with disabilities so they can enjoy their vacations as much as possible! 

    There are designated parking areas across Walt Disney World Resort for Guests with disabilities! This is a great option for Guests that may need a bit more assistance when parking or closer proximity to their destination. For the Magic Kingdom, you will need to park at the Transportation and Ticket Center. You will find accessible parking up towards the front of this area near the path to the various transportation options to the Magic Kingdom. At Epcot, there are two lots located on the East and West sides of the parking lots. Both of these options are the closest lots to the walkway and are a short walk to the entrance of Epcot. With Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the accessible lot again located right near the entrance to the park and is located right beside the walking path to the entrance. Finally, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you will find the accessible lot just past the bus depot.

    I do highly recommend checking in with a Cast Member about the location of accessible parking when you purchase your parking pass for the day! They will be able to give you the most up-to-date information just in case there have been any changes! Additionally, your brother will need his hand tag to access these parking areas so be sure to pack that as well. My final tip would be to arrive as early as possible at your destination! The accessible lots can sometimes reach capacity and, while Cast Members do their best to find a suitable alternative, it may mean a bit more of a distance to travel. 

    I hope this information assists you and your family in planning a magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions along the way!
