    Confirmed

    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.
