Default UBER specific questions

I love using Uber in the World. We have not been to the world in 2 years. Is it still as easy?

Do the drivers have access to all the resorts for pickup and drop-off? For drop-off I used to scan my band which got the driver in the gate with no questions. But for pickup they used to have to talk their way thru. Is this still the case.

Does any resort(s) have more restrictions?

Iíve seen some people report theyíve been turned away from the Contemporary before the gate if they donít have an ADR. Thatís when arriving in the Uber early morning, for example.

Sure....If you are trying to break the rules to walk to MK.

The assumption is that the OP is using uber to get to their resort or to get to an ADR at resort. I based that on the question of scanning the MB when arriving at the resort.

To get around it, people will say they are going to (insert restaurant or lounge) for food or drinks.

I must be missing something here. I know that parking at Contemporary/BLT is verboten for park access. But why would a drop-off be a problem? Not sure what rule is being broken here, even if one were walking to MK.

Cheers.

I have the same question. Can only surmise the guard doesn't trust the honesty of the driver.

If you are trying to walk from BLT or Contemporary make sure you put that location in. At the gate we have had different experiences, a lot of Uber drives show them their "badge" and they say they are dropping off people.

We had an Uber driver try to drop us off in the walkway when the light turned red. Don't do that.
