    After dinner in world showcase (Italy) what is fastest way to AK? Bus from front of Epcot or walk to Boardwalk and take resort bus? Or other? Thinking catching short night pandora line! TIA

    Hi, Lisa! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your question. I like the way you think! Heading over for a late night ride on the back of a mountain banshee is always a great idea! To make sure you get to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park as fast as possible, you have a few options. I think your best bet is to head to the International Gateway Entrance to Epcot (located between the France and United Kingdom Pavilions) and then walk over to Disney's Beach Club Resort. From there, you can take complimentary bus transportation to the theme park.

    I recommend you check the digital board at the bus stop to see when the next bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is expected. You may be able to save time by using your My Disney Experience mobile app to call for Minnie Van Service. This adorable new transportation option works through Lyft rideshare service to provide quick rides all across Walt Disney World Resort. When you open your My Disney Experience mobile app, you should see a section featuring a cute red and white polka dotted Minnie Van. When you tap it, you will be sent to the Lyft app, where you can find Minnie Vans listed under the "More" tab. Simply input your destination and it will find the nearest ride for you.

    I hope this information helps you fly across the Valley of Mo'ara as quickly as possible! Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
