    Hello, is there away of working out times and transport methods before going. I am going to be staying at the animal kingdom lodge and plan to make full use of the early entry to the parks- is there a way I would be able to see the timings of the buses?

    Hi Karina!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, with rooms perched on the savannah offering you sightings of zebras, giraffes, and antelope, is fabulous! You will love the  soaring lobby, marvelous restaurants, and beautiful zero entry pool.

    Getting a jump on attractions with Early Entry is one of my favorite perks for Walt Disney World Resort guests. Using Walt Disney World transportation, you will have no problem arriving in time to hit the theme parks to take advantage of this benefit. Buses typically begin running one hour before the official opening time, but my family has found buses are often on the go a bit earlier. Expect a bus to arrive about every 20 minutes. In the mornings, if you want to see the time for the next bus, check your My Disney Experience app. On the home page, click on "Resort Hotel" on the right toward the bottom. Then click on "See Bus Times".

    Wishing you a wonderful visit to see Mickey!
