    I am being dropped off to either Disney Springs or the TTC at 8 a.m., but I need to get to Animal Kingdom at that time. What would be my best transportation option from either of those locations? Thank you!

    Welcome to planDisney, Dylan! I'm so glad that you came to us to ask your question about transportation today. It's a great idea to think about how you're going to get from point A to point B before you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort so let's chat about your options for getting to Disney Animal Kingdom.

    Dylan, you will not be able to be dropped off at Disney Springs at 8:00 a.m. as it does not open until 10:00 a.m. With that in mind, let's plan for you to get to Disney's Animal Kingdom from the Transportation and Ticket Center. Complimentary bus transportation runs between parks approximately 45 minutes prior to park opening, but these buses aren't as regular in the early hours of the day as they are when park hopping hours start in the afternoon. You can take the monorail or ferry boat from the Transportation and Ticket Center to Magic Kingdom Park and pick up a bus from there, but the quickest route will be to use a rideshare service. Once you arrive at the Transportation and Ticket Center, request a car from your favorite rideshare service, and they will be able to take you right up to the entrance of Disney's Animal Kingdom. If getting there as early as possible is important to you, I recommend doing it this way!

    Have a magical day, Dylan!
