    Best transfer available to get from Magic Kingdom to Animal Kingdom. Can you suggest how to get my family there quickly. Thx Casey

    Hiya Casey,

    Welcome to planDisney! At Walt Disney World Resort, I always ensure we maximize our time. From purchasing Disney Genie+ so we spend less time waiting in lines to mobile ordering so we can schedule our snacks, and every time we hack in between, we use them all! Transportation to and from each park is another excellent way to ensure you spend your time wisely.

    Casey, the most direct complimentary way to get from Magic Kingdom Park to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park is via the Walt Disney World Resort bus transportation! Once you exit Magic Kingdom Park, head to the bus depot area to the left of the entrance and locate the bus heading to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. But Casey, you mentioned wanting a quicker way to get to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. In my experience, bus transportation can be fast, but not always. For this reason, we prefer to use the Minnie Van Service! What we love about the Minnie Van Service is that we don’t have to worry about the bus being too full, finding a place to sit, or collapsing our toddler’s stroller. It is perfect for families! They are also driven by Cast Members, so they know all the tips and tricks to make your trip even more magical. If you have car-seat-aged Mouseketeers, Casey, you will love the Minnie Van. Minnie Vans have two car seats that accommodate both rear and forward-facing Mouseketeers. One thing to note, Casey, is that, unlike the bus, the Minnie Van service is not complimentary; however, I find that the benefit of ease outweighs the cost.

    I hope this helped Casey and that you have all you need to continue on your planning journey. Please come back and see us if you need anything else!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
