Disney’s Animal Kingdom Testing New Stroller Parking and Pick-Up System Starting Tomorrow

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Beginning June 1st, guests with strollers who visit select shows and attractions at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will participate in a pilot program designed to improve upon the stroller parking and pick-up system by breaking the parking zones into 3 sections each.

As part of the test, new 3-section stroller parking zones will be introduced at:

  • Kilimanjaro Safaris
  • “it’s tough to be a bug”
  • Kali River Rapids
  • Finding Nemo – The Musical
  • Festival of the Lion King
  • Wildlife Express Train
  • Rivers of Light

Guests who are renting a stroller at Animal Kingdom will receive a specialty tag at the time of rental and those who bring their own stroller will receive a tag when they visit their first show or attraction that is a part of the program. Tags will be colored to correspond with one of three newly-designated parking zones at each attraction listed above.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • I am not a parent, but if I just paid $100 to bring my child into the park, I do not feel that the 3 parking areas I may receive are enough or spread throughout the park enough for a family

    • Children under 3 are free. I would guess that’s the bulk of kids in strollers. When we last went to animal kingdom in December, it seemed like they were doing something relatively similar to this by Kilimanjaro Safaris and it worked out really well. It may have actually been nothing like it, but they took our stroller for us at the beginning of the line. Just nice in the hustle and bustle of everything.

  • Disney REALLY needs to start charging admission for all ages, infants included. The place is too crammed full, every inch counts, and no kid 2y/o and under are going to enjoy it there, nor remember it. If they charged something, the stroller issue would be helped, or Disney might feel they have enough money to expand some areas to accommodate the masses.

    • It’s all about crowd dispersal, they can let in more people if they are parents and kids with strollers because they will likely be spending less time at the most in demand rides, but still spending money at the park. If you change the pricing structure you’ll have less people at the Tea Cups and way more at Space Mountain, etc that already have massive lines,
