Animal Kingdom Entrance and Tram Drop Off to be Reconfigured

310 is reporting that Disney has filed with permits to reconfigure the entrance of Disney's Animal Kingdom. The changes would call for a modification to the existing parking lot tram drop off area that would shift guests further away from the park. The plan would also result in the bag check area moving further out to the existing tram drop off area.

The below photos (used with permission from show the nature of these changes.

This shows the existing tram drop off area with the new layout overlayed and highlighted.
