    We have dining reservation at AK Rainforest Cafe at 5:30. According to the calendar AK closes at 5 that day. We will be able to catch a bus back to CSR? We are driving down so we will have our car. Will we have to pay for parking if we drive to AK?

    Hi Pamela!!!

    Thank you for your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!!

    Disney Bus Transportation will usually run about an hour and a half to two hours after a park closes.  There are many people that will linger around in a park once it closes so they take this into account when scheduling the bus times.  My guess is that the last buses from Disney's Animal Kingdom will pull out around 6:30-7:00.  I think that you would be alright and be able to catch a bus back to Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, but I can understand if you would be concerned about missing the bus.  

    Since you are staying on Walt Disney World Property you will be allowed to park for free at any of the four theme parks.  All you will need to do is have your parking decal in your window and you will be allowed to park for free.  Since you can park for free this might provide you with a bit more peace of mind to make sure you have a ride home after dinner if you drive to the park. 

    I hope that you have a magical trip!!
