At the top of the lot. From the handicapp parking you have to walk, roll, push, under the roadway that connects to the Poly and GF. Then you will have to walk around the tram drop off area and up to the monorail via the TTC.

It is the longest of all the walks from a handicap parking area to the gate/monorail of any of the parks. Then comes the epcot parking, followed by AK then the best location is MGM, which is right in the middle of the resort bus stops loop.

If you are staying at one of the WDW resorts, the bus is the best way to get to MK because it drops you off right at the turnstiles to get into the park.

As pjpoohbear mentioned, the handicapped parking at MK is a long walk to the TTC where you need to catch either the boat (a longer walk) or the monorail (a walk up a steep ramp to the monorail station at 2nd floor level). There are no trams to get from the handicapped parking area to the park entrance. There are some "courtesy" wheelchairs at the handicapped parking areas that you can use to get to the area where you can rent a wheelchair. There is no guarantee that any courtesy wheelchairs will be available in the area when you ge there, though.

If you can walk short distances and step up to get into the tram, you will be better off (less walking) to park in the regular parking lots and use the trams. The parking lot trams drop off and pick up close to the TTC at MK.

You might also want to look into renting a wheelchair or ecv. There is information in the disABILITIES FAQs threadd near the top of this board.

Ask to park next to the tram for medical reasons and they will get you closer to the tram then you probably would if you just parked

Hotel royal is not a Disney resort meaning they drop you off at the ttc only Disney owned buses and vehicles are allowed to enter the mk bus station.
