    What is the best route to take from EPCOT back to Animal Kingdom after the park closes? I will be driving and leaving my car at Animal Kingdom. We will be park hopping after Animal Kingdom to EPCOT.

    Hey Howdy Hey Noah and welcome to planDisney!

    It sounds like you have a full day of adventure ahead of you visiting 2 Theme Parks during your upcoming trip. This does sound like an amazing time however it also sounds like we have to consider what happens after your Magical evening concludes at EPCOT to get your vehicle. Not to worry Noah, you've got a friend in me to give you the details. 

    Noah, your best option will be to take a rideshare or call Minnie Van Service to transport you directly to your vehicle from EPCOT to Disney's Animal Kingdom. Busing typically stops transportation routes about 1 hour after the parks close and considering Animal Kingdom typically closes first out of the 4 parks, you may not have the ability to take a bus back to Animal Kingdom. Rideshares or Minnie Vans will take you directly from one park to the other so you can get your vehicle and head out for the evening. 

    One super handy tip to keep in mind as you arrive in Animal Kingdom is to use the Car Locator feature in your My Disney Experience app. When you arrive, you can open your app and select the three horizontal lines on the bottom right of your screen for more options. Look for the Car Locator feature and tap on the heading. You can either plug in your information or let your location be viewed by the app to remember where you parked. This should help navigate you to your vehicle faster considering your evening will conclude at EPCOT. 

    I hope you have a Magical time on your upcoming park visit. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach back out and let us know, we are always happy to help!

    To Infinity and Beyond,
