    How early do the buses from Magic Kingdom to Animal Kingdom start? On my departure day I was able to get an 8am reservation at Be Our Guest, but would like to spend as much time as possible in Animal Kingdom before my 3:30 Magical Express pick-up.

    Hi there, Rochelle! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Just like you, I always try to soak up every bit of magic that I can before my journey home. The complimentary Walt Disney World Resort transportation makes it so easy to take advantage of park hopping to squeeze in that last bit of adventure before I return home and begin planning my next Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I have always found the buses from Magic Kingdom Park to Disney's Animal Kingdom to be running quite early. It should be operating when you finish your delicious breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant, but I would ask a Cast Member when you are leaving Magic Kingdom Park just to be sure. If for whatever reason it is not running yet, you can simply walk over to Disney's Contemporary Resort, or take the monorail (my favorite ride in all of the Walt Disney World Resort!) to Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort or Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and hop on a bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom from there. All these options would take a little more time, but really wouldn't set your schedule back too far. They're all quite convenient!

    Enjoy your upcoming vacation, Rochelle! It will be here before you know it!
