    How would it be best to get from AoA to Mara and back?

    Hi Lora,

    There is no direct free transportation between the Art of Animation resort and the Animal Kingdom Lodge. This means that to get from AoA to AK, you'll have to make a transfer. Assuming that the Animal Kingdom park is open, the easiest thing to do would be to take a bus from AoA to the Animal Kingdom. Then, at the Animal Kingdom, hop on a bus to the Animal Kingdom Lodge. If the Animal Kingdom park is not open when you want to this, you should take a bus from AoA to Downtown Disney and transfer there to a AKL bus. To return, simply do this in reverse.

    I must also tell you that you'll save lots of time if you grab a taxi from AoA to AKL. This will cost in the neighborhood of about $15, but you may save more than half an hour in travel time.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
