    Hi again panel, What is the fastest way to get from the Animal Kingdom park to the Downtown Disney area?What is the last bus from Downtown disney to the pop century resort?Your all the best for all the advice you give us all. So thank you all very much:)

    Hi Anna,

    Thank you for your question, I'm so happy we've helped you in the past!

    The quickest way to get to Downtown Disney from Animal Kingdom is to use a cab, they are available outside all resorts and parks. If you're anything like me though you'd rather use Disney transport and not have to spend anything so here's how to do that. Unfortunately there is no direct bus from AK to Downtown so you will need to do a transfer. The closest Disney resort to Downtown is Saratoga Springs Resort, so hop on a bus to there and depending on how energetic you're feeling you can either walk, catch another bus or use the boat to get to Downtown. I like to use the transport wizard at to help me plan my travel.

    The next part of your question is slightly harder to answer because it will depend on what time Downtown closes during your trip. As a rough guide though the buses will keep running for between 1 and 2 hours after everything closes and I've heard from several people that Disney will never leave their guests stranded and will get you back to your resort somehow which is very reassuring!

    Have a great trip,
