If she's on your reservation, she should also be able to use the MagicBand "guests entrance" at the toll booths if you've already checked her in. Just tap and the gate goes up.

Thanks for that tip..

Google maps also routes you correctly into the correct lanes for the bypass, I used it to get to CCV last week.

Waze has been updated also to include the temporary bypass.

At the CR/BLT Guard Shack, they can scan her MB to verify she is listed as a resort guest and will allow her to park at the resort.

I wish I would have had this map a couple weeks ago. My parents drove from DAK to VGF and missed that exit and it ended up taking them over an hour to get from DAK to VGF. DW, DDs and I took a minnie van, and even with waiting 10 minutes for it to come, we still beat them to the resort.

Will your daughter need a florida sunpass transponder for the tolls?

Asking just in case. You can get it beforehand.
