    Is there complimentary transit between the water parks and disney parks? How long would it take to get from Epcot to Animal Kingdom via transit? What time of day is best to see Epcot?

    Hi, Michelle!

    Disney buses can get you anywhere you wish to go on property, but it sometimes requires a bus transfer. Routes change depending on times of the year and crowds. Your best option is to speak to your Lobby Concierge for current bus route information, or chat with any Cast Member near the bus depots in the theme parks to ask for your best route options when heading to a water park. 

    If you are at Epcot and wish to transfer to Disney's Animal Kingdom, you can hop on a bus that will zoom you over in about 20 minutes. When planning transportation time, always factor in wait time for the bus to arrive. Most wait times should be less than 20 minutes. 

    And your final question: Best time of day to visit Epcot. My family likes to arrive at Epcot around 3pm. We hop right on Spaceship Earth, then have a FastPass+ reserved for Test Track after that. Then it is off to World Showcase where we will have a dining reservation booked for one of the fantastic restaurants. The rest of the night can be spent strolling World Showcase, or enjoying attractions such as Soarin' Around the World or Living with the Land. Each night at Epcot is topped off with Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. A perfect magical afternoon and evening!

    Have a great visit to Walt Disney World!
