    We'll be having lunch with Cinderella at her royal table at noon on Friday. Is there time to go to Animal Kingdom before lunch? We'll have spent the day at MK the day before.

    Hi there Lorri,

    You don't mention when you are visiting Walt Disney World, so I can't look up park hours for a specific day.  However, if Animal Kingdom happens to have Extra Magic Morning Hours on the day you are having lunch at Cinderella Castle, and you head over when the park opens, you would have enough time to enjoy quite a few attractions before having to head over for lunch.  Click HERE for the park calendar to determine what time it opens on the date you are planning to visit.  I would allow a bit over an hour to get between parks.  Using Disney Transportation, I would recommend taking a bus from Animal Kingdom to the TTC (Transportation and Ticket Center) and taking a monorail or ferry boat to Magic Kingdom.  (There are no direct buses between the two parks).  You could also take a bus to a resort and then switch to a Magic Kingdom bus, monorail or boat (depending upon which resort you go to.)

    Have a great time!
