    What is the best way to get from the Polynesian resort to the Animal Kingdom resort?

    Hi Kathy!

    The easiest way to get to Animal Kingdom Lodge (AKL) from the Polynesian would be to take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom and then a bus to AKL. When riding the resort monorail from the Poly, the Magic Kingdom is the second stop. I would allow at least 45 minutes to complete your trip.

    You could also take a bus from the Polynesian to Blizzard Beach or Downtown Disney and then transfer to an Animal Kingdom Lodge bus. This method could save you a few minutes, but it all depends on how long you'll have to wait for a bus both times. If you arrive at Blizzard Beach and have just missed the AKL bus, you could spend up to 20 minutes waiting for the next one.

    Of course, if time is an issue, you could always take a taxi which would be an added expense, but will be less hassle and only about a 20 minute ride.

    I hope this gives you some ideas! Have a great vacation!
