    If I hopper from animal to magic and want to stay after Hopper stops running at 8:30, but I stay at magic until 11:00, how can I get to my car at animal???

    Welcome to planDisney, Vickie.

    I'm so glad that you chose to be our Guest. We love nothing more than helping fellow Guests plan their Walt Disney World trips. Oh boy! I think you've got a magical day ahead of you. I love going to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park in the morning. I always find that this is the best time to experience Kilimanjaro Safaris. A knowledgeable Cast Member once told me that early mornings are when the animals are most active. They were correct! Also, on my most recent visit, I really enjoyed watching the new show, Disney KiteTails. There are a few different, but unique viewings each day. I highly recommend it. 

    I'm also a big fan of using the Park Hopper Option to hop to Magic Kingdom Park. You'll be able to do this after 2:00 p.m. (subject to availability). I bet you can't wait to see Cinderella Castle in all its EARidescent majesty. Get the camera ready! I also have some exciting news for you: the Festival of Fantasy Parade has just returned! You can even get a special spot to watch it by using Disney Genie+. And you simply must experience Disney Enchantment

    Vickie, if you're planning on parking your car at Disney's Animal Kingdom in the morning, then when it comes time to hop parks, I'd encourage you to drive your car to Magic Kingdom Park. I personally wouldn't use the Disney Bus Transporation Service. Since these buses generally run until about an hour after the Theme Parks close, you'll likely have trouble getting back to Disney's Animal Kingdom if you stay at Magic Kingdom Park until 11:00 p.m. The good news is that Guests pay one fee for a parking pass. And that pass is good all day at all four Theme Parks. You'll just need to keep your receipt and show it to a Cast Member when you park at Magic Kingdom Park. Hakuna Matata!

    I hope that's helpful, Vickie! As we say in Liverpool, I hope you have a "proper boss" trip.
