    My husband and I have a trip coming up this August to Disney World. We made a fastpass for Avatar Flight of Passage for 3:30 and we have reservations for Mickey’s Backyard BBQ at 5:30. Will we be able to make it in time? What is the best way to get there?

    Hi Cynthia!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel to ask such a great question about transportation at Walt Disney World Resort.   I am so happy to be able to help you out today.

    You are going to be amazed by Avatar Flight of Passage.  When I first rode this attraction it took my breath away, it is definitely a MUST DO in my book.  Disney FastPass+ selections for this attraction are also hard to get a hold of, as the attraction is so popular so I wouldn't want you to cancel yours.  I suggest you arrive for your Disney FastPass+ selection directly at 3:30. This should have you finishing the attraction around 4. You will then need to take the bus from Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort.  Once at the Resort you will need to transfer to an Internal Shuttle and head to Settlement Hall. From here you will follow the signs to the pavilion where Mickey's Backyard BBQ will take place.   You will be cutting it very close on time, but it is not impossible.  Another option to make travel a little quicker would be to use the Minnie Van service. Minnie Vans can pick you up outside of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and drop you off directly at Settlement Hall which will save you a little time.   

    I hope you enjoy your trip and please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you. It's always fun to be able to help out a fellow Guest with their travel plans.
