    Where would be a good place for dinner that takes DDP after AK closes? We are staying at Pop Century and would need transportation back there. Is it difficult to move from resort to resort in the evening? We weren't excited about a 4:30 dinner in AK.

    HI Kristen

    Three of our favorite restaurants are just next door to the Animal Kingdom at the Animal Kingdom Lodge:  Jiko, Boma, and Sanaa.  Once finished dining, you could take a taxi home or take a bus to Disney's Hollywood Studios or Epcot then transfer to a Pop Century bus. 

    Another option is to take the bus from the AK to the AKL then transfer over to a Downtown Disney bus. At Downtown Disney, there is a wide selection of dining options that are part of the Disney Dining Plan:  Cookes of Dublin, Earl of Sandwich, FoodQuest, Pollo Campero/Fresh A-Peel, Wolfgang Puck Express, Cap'n Jack's Restaurant, Planet Hollywood, Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant, and Wolfgang Puck Cafe (first floor only). 

    From Downtown Disney, you'll be able to take a bus directly back to your resort. 

    Have a great trip!
