    Hi I'm spending a day @ Animal Kingdom and have later dining res in Disney Springs. Is there a direct way from Animal Kingdom to Disney Springs or must I take the bus back to the hotel(ASMovie)to go to Disney Springs. Thank you,and have a magical day!

    Hi there, Cynthia!

    Thanks for your question and welcome back!

    To make it to your dining reservation, you will need to take a bus from Disney's Animal Kingdom to a resort. At this time,, there is not a direct bus from this theme park to Disney's fabulous shopping district. 
    The closest resort is Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and from there you can take bus to Disney Springs.

    Disney's Old Key West Resort, Disney's Saratoga Springs, Disney's Port Orleans Resort French Quarter, and Disney's Port Orleans Resort Riverside offer river boats to Disney Springs. You can take a bus from Disney's Animal Kingdom to any of these resorts and catch a boat to Disney Springs.  

    Another option would be to take a cab or Uber to Disney Springs, if you are in hurry to make you advanced dining reservation on time. 

    Happy planning!

    Have a magical day!
