    We have a 9:40 am FP for the safari at AK. What time should we leave the grand Floridian?

    Hi Kristen!

    I absolutely love staying at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. With its beautiful Victorian-style architecture, it is like staying in your very own castle, surrounded by friendly Cast Members and every amenity one can imagine! :-) It sounds like you're also going to 1 of my top 3 attractions at Disney's Animal Kingdom: Kilimanjaro Safaris

    If you are taking the complimentary Disney bus, I would leave 2 hours before your FastPass time, to allow yourself enough time to get on the bus, travel to Animal Kingdom, get off the bus, go through the park entrance, and then get to the Safari FastPass entrance in time.

    If you plan to take an Uber or catch a taxi, I would slim that time down 30 minutes to 1 and a half hours.

    The key is to allow yourself as much "wiggle room" as possible. I've been in situations where we got to the Park right near the end of our FastPass+ time frame, running to the attraction just to get there on time, which isn't much fun.

    Best of Luck and have a Mickey Magical Day!
