    What is the easiest way to get from Magic Kingdom to Animail Kingdom without having to return to your Disney resort?

    Hi Jodi,

    I hope you're looking forward to your upcoming visit to the most magical place on earth! It sounds like you have a Park Hopper Option ticket, which will allow you to go wherever you'd like during the day and experience SO MUCH magic and fun!

    I'm happy to let you know that there will be a complimentary bus that will take you directly from Magic Kingdom Park to Disney's Animal Kingdom, so you can just sit back, relax, and let Disney do the driving! When you're ready to leave Magic Kingdom Park and you've exited the gates, simply head over to the left and look for the location number for the bus that's heading directly to Animal Kingdom Park. Buses come approximately every 20 minutes, and your ride should take around 15-20 minutes, but could vary depending on current traffic conditions.

    Since you're heading to Disney's Animal Kingdom later in the day, I'd definitely encourage you to experience Pandora - The World of Avatar after dark. Its beauty is breathtaking, and the attention to detail is incredible. Be sure to listen for the sounds of the out-of-this-world creatures and enjoy the entire land coming to life with the magic of bioluminescence. It's really spectacular!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jodi, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
