    We are arriving a day before check in to AKL. Airport Hyatt is full. I'm struggling to figure out kid-safe transportation from airport to the first night's hotel and then again from that hotel to AKL. My son is still in a car seat.

    Jambo and thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jennie!

    My wife, daughter and I just stayed at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge last June… let me tell you, it was breathtaking! There’s nothing like waking up, grabbing a warm cup of coffee and searching for the 30+ species of African wildlife.

    As you prepare for your Disney Resort visit, I might recommend looking at one of the seven Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels as you’ll be able to take advantage of Disney’s Minnie Van service. The Minnie Van service works within the Lyft app and each vehicle is equipped with two child safety seats that Disney Cast Members are expertly trained to install for you... so it’ll take all your transportation worries away!

    Oh, and as a side tip be sure to pack a pair of binoculars. As animals roam around the savannah, you never know what types of animals you can spot.

    If you have any other questions, please let us know. Have a magical day!
