    Our departing flight leaves Orlando on our last day at 6:22 pm. But we'd like to spend part of our last day at Animal Kingdom. When should we leave AK to get back to our resort to catch the Magical Express and (unfortunately) our plane home.

    Hi Mark,

    Planning a WDW vacation is part of the fun except for that day of departure. At least you'll be easing your way back to the real world by venturing to Animal Kingdom in the morning.

    Disney's Magical Express will arrange pick up at your resort approximately three hours prior to your flight. Therefore, you'll want to be back to your hotel by approximately 3:00 p.m.

    Since I'm not certain which resort that you are staying at, I would leave an hour for transportation so you don't have to worry about missing your bus.

    I would leave the Animal Kingdom by 2:00 p.m. unless you are at a very nearby resort such as the Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    Enjoy a wonderfully planned vacation and I hope your transition from Walt Disney World back to reality goes well!
