    We are coming to WDW in late June 2017 and staying at the Beach Club. We are using the Disney bus transportation for the first time. If we go from Animal Kingdom to Disney Springs for dinner, do we have to go to our hotel first or can we go directly to DS

    Hi Diane,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. It sounds like you have a great day planned. A visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Park followed by an evening at Disney Springs will be so much fun! Be sure to check out the new Pandora - The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. It is lush and beautiful.

    I have good news for you. Direct bus transportation is available from all Walt Disney World theme parks to Disney Springs beginning at 4:00 p.m. If you need to leave the theme park earlier than 4:00 p.m., you would need to take a bus to a resort hotel and then catch a bus to Disney Springs. For the trip you are taking, I would suggest that if you do need to leave before 4:00 p.m., hop on a bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and then catch a bus to Disney Springs from there.

    At the end of the evening, simply take the bus back from Disney Springs to Disney's Beach Club Resort. The buses from Disney Springs back to the Disney resort hotels run until 2:00 a.m.

    Please do let us know if you have any further questions, Diane!
