    We are considering a tour behind the scenes at Animal Kingdom. We have to be there before park opening. What is the best way to get there?

    Hi Barbara! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    How adventurous! I have always wanted to take one of Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Tours! I have only heard rave reviews! I assume by your question that you do not have access to a vehicle and are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and are relying on Disney’s Complimentary Resort Transportation. If this is the case, there are a few options for you! You will want to arrive at least 20 minutes ahead of your scheduled tour. There are a number of complimentary “breakfast buses” that start running before the regular transportation for Guests with Dining Reservations before Theme Park opening. This may be an option for you- I suggest consulting the Lobby Concierge at your Disney Resort hotel before determining if this is the best option for you, as it is always subject to change. Another option would be a private vehicle transfer or a taxi, both of which your Lobby Concierge can arrange. Don’t let the early hour deter you from an experience of a lifetime!

    Have a wild time!
