    WHat is the best way to get to Animal Kingdom from the Wilderness Lodge? We have a Character Breakfast at 8am. What time do you think we should leave??

    On our last trip, we had an 8:05 a.m. reservation at Tusker House in the Animal Kingdom. We were staying at the Grand Floridian which isn't too far from the Wilderness Lodge.

    We got to the bus stop by 7:15 a.m. Our bus didn't even pull up until 7:30 a.m. and we were still at the Animal Kingdom prior to park opening and this was with stopping at the Blizzard Beach water park to drop off passengers.

    The best way in my opinion is via a taxi or your own vehicle. Otherwise just allow sufficient time for travel via bus.

    When you get to the Animal Kingdom, proceed through Security and then to the turnstile at the far right. This is where you will give your name to be allowed in the park for your dining reservation at Tusker House.
