    I'm splitting a stay between AKL/Pop. The night I switch I will go to Extended Evening hours at Magic Kingdom. Since it ends at 1:00 I am unsure how to get back to Pop? I'm a female traveling solo so not comfortable with uber/lyft.

    Welcome to planDisney, Madison!

    What a fantastic trip you have coming up! You're staying at two of my favorite Disney Resorts. I've actually just returned from a stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort. It's so great taking Disney Skyliner to the theme parks. As I recently mentioned to some folks, it makes you feel like Peter Pan flying off to Neverland.

    I've stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge more than any other Disney Resort. Everything about this hotel is magical. The music, the décor, the ambiance, the smell, the cuisine, the pools, the animals, the people, the lobby... I love it all! One of my dreams is to take my children here at Christmastime. The majestic lobby has a spectacular Christmas tree that needs to be seen to be believed. 

    One of the benefits of staying at a Deluxe Resort is being able to take advantage of Extra Evening Theme Park Hours. This is my absolute favorite time to enjoy the parks, Madison. Recently, my family was able to enjoy an extra two hours at Magic Kingdom Park and we experienced SO MANY attractions. It was amazing! You'll be pleased to know that you can even enjoy this benefit on the day you check out of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Don't worry about getting to Disney's Pop Century Resort at 1:00 AM. There are plenty of buses that make sure all the Guests can get back to their hotels. Disney won't leave you stranded at the theme park (although, sometimes I wish they would!). You might also be helped to know that there are lots of Cast Members around and it's pretty well-lit in between the park exit and the bus stops. There'll also be a decent amount of other Guests around too. So I trust you'll feel safe!

    I hope that's reassuring, Madison! Have a great time and thanks for visiting planDisney. Come and see us again.
