    Hi - Would we have enough time to go to Aninal Kingdom in the AM, then get back to EPCOT for 3:50 dinner at Coral Reef followed by 6:45 Candlelight Processional @ Epcot. If so, what time should we head for the bus at Animal Kingdom. Thanks!

    Hi Kara:

    You've planned a busy but exciting day, and I see no reason your plan won't work.  There is no direct Park to Park bus transportation, so you'll have to transfer at a Resort to pick up a bus for Epcot.  Ideally you can catch catch a bus to Animal Kingdom Lodge, since that is the closest Resort to Animal Kingdom.  Alternatively, any of the All-Star Resorts, Pop Century, and Coronado Springs Resorts aren't all that far from Animal Kingdom Park.  Make a bus transfer at the Resort to an Epcot bus.  Another idea is to take a bus from Animal Kingdom to the Beach Club Resort where you can walk through the Resort to the "back" entrance of  Epcot and then walk through the World Showcase area to get to Coral Reef (warning, there will be significant walking with this route, but you'll skip the bus transfer).

    I'm an early bird, so I would allow up to 90 minutes for transportation from Animal Kingdom to Coral Reef.  If you arrive early, you can always spend time exploring Epcot.

    Enjoy your vacation.
