    How early do I need to leave Animal Kingdom theme park to make it to a 9:00 showing of La Nouba at the end of Januray?

    Hey, Shontelle!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so glad you asked this question because you want to be early for any pre-show activity when seeing La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil at Disney Springs.

    If you are going directly from Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to Disney Springs it will take you approximately 25 minutes once your Walt Disney World Bus Service motor coach departs. You may have to wait for the bus as they run every 20 minutes. To be safe I would budget 90 minutes of total travel time as Disney recommends and you should leave the theme park around 7:00 p.m. In August of 2016, bus service began carrying Guests from the theme parks directly to Disney Springs.

    Personally, I would leave around 5:00 p.m. and schedule a 5:45-6:00 p.m. dinner at any of the magnificent restaurants at Disney Springs such as STK Orlando, Morimoto Asia or Chef Art Smith's Homecoming.

    Disney Dad Tip: The "Get Directions" feature on the My Disney Experience Mobile App is the easiest method to find your way between any two Walt Disney World locations whether they be theme parks or between attractions.

    Shontelle, enjoy making many Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort.
