    Hi there! You're planning some great meals during your Walt Disney World vacation! I love Tusker House and Via Napoli! It's easy to travel from the Animal Kingdom to Epcot; just catch one of the buses than runs directly between the two parks. The trip takes about 15 minutes, but you may have to wait 10 minutes or so for a bus to pick you up. Once you arrive at Epcot, you'll need to walk to Via Napoli at the opposite side of the park, so I'd budget 30 minutes or so to do that. (You could reduce your walking a bit by taking a bus from the Animal Kingdom to the Yacht & Beach Club and then walking or taking a boat to Epcot. From these resorts you can enter Epcot at the International Gateway, which is closer to the restaurants in the World Showcase. While you'll walk less with this route, you'll still need to leave Animal Kingdom at least an hour before your dinner reservation to give yourself enough time to get there.)

    Both the buffet at Tusker House and the pizza and Italian food at Via Napoli are hearty, satisfying meals, so you may want to move your Via Napoli reservation a little later to make sure you have an appetite that's big enough to do the yummy pizza justice.

    Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We're always happy to help!
