    what is the distance from parking lot to the park ? Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom park

    Hi, there!

     Raquel, I'm so excited to see you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few days. There's no place I'd rather be, that's for sure! 

     I'm pleased to tell you that the parking lot at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is right next to the park itself. Depending on how early you arrive, the walk to the park entrance may only take you a few minutes! At most, you can expect a 10-minute walk. 

     The distance from the Magic Kingdom Park parking lot to the park entrance is quite a bit farther than those of the parking lots for the other three theme parks. When you visit Magic Kingdom Park, you'll park your vehicle at the Transportation and Ticket Center. Once you're parked, you'll walk to the Transportation and Ticket Center gate. Again, depending on how early you arrive, this could be a very short walk or a bit longer of one. From the Transportation and Ticket Center, you'll need to hop on either a ferry boat or the monorail to get to the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park. Both modes of transportation can take between 10-15 minutes. To be sure you have plenty of time, I recommend allowing yourself about 30 minutes total for travel time between your parking spot and the park entrance. 

     Don't forget to download the My Disney Experience mobile app before your visit. It's magic at your fingertips! This handy tool has lots of cool features, but one in particular that you may find especially helpful is the Transportation feature which highlights all your transportation options at the Walt Disney World Resort.

     Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Raquel. I'm wishing you a Disney visit that is practically perfect in every way!
