    What is the best way to hop between Epcot and Animal Kingdom?

    Hello, Nancy!

    I can't believe you arrive to the Walt Disney World Resort to begin your magical vacation tomorrow! Hooray! I'm excited to hEAR you'll soon be visiting with my favorite pal, Mickey.

    There is complimentary Disney Bus Service that goes from Epcot to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park which would be the most the direct route for you. Please be aware that travel between the two can take up to an hour depending on crowd levels and bus service demand. If you are a Guest staying at one of the participating Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, another option would be the Minnie Van Service. This option is convenient and easy, but does cost a little extra. Another option would be to take the monorail. While this one would definitely take some time out of your day, I usually make any excuse to take the monorail and you could enjoy a meal a Disney Resort Hotel prior to continuing your magical day. With this option you'd need to take the monorail to the Transportation and Ticket Center, transfer to the Magic Kingdom Resort monorail and take it to one of the Magic Kingdom Resort Hotels. Here, you could get off and explore a bit before taking a bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

    Safe travels, Nancy, and please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with.

    Magical Wishes,
