    What is the best way to get from Animal Kingdom to Epcot for a dinner reservation on 12/29/17? We had planned on using the express transportation but now I'm not sure what to do.

    Hi, Eletha!

    Hakuna Matata! No worries! To get to Epcot from Disney's Animal Kingdom, simply hop on a bus. Bus stops are clearly marked with their destination, so find your bus stop and a friendly driver will zoom you over to Epcot. You will be dropped off at Epcot at the Main Entrance near Future World. 

    You even have another option. You can take the bus from Disney's Animal Kingdom to Disney's Beach Club Resort. From there, take the lovely stroll to the International Gateway Entrance of Epcot (less than 10 minute walk).  If you are dining in one of the countries, this might be a better option as when you enter through the International Gateway, you will be entering in between England and France, right in the heart of World Showcase!

    With either option, plan to be at your bus stop 60 - 75 minutes prior to your dining reservation. Buses run approximately every 20 minutes, but you are traveling during a very busy time so I don't want you to feel rushed if you need to wait a bit for the bus or if lines are long getting through security. 

    Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World, and wishing you a very happy holiday visit!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
