    Would like to know how far of a bus ride to the Parks from Animal Kingdom, Jambo House? And if we took a cab about how long?


    You are going to love the excitement of Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House! This is one wild Disney Vacation Club Resort with unique dining, entertainment, and of course, the exotic animals of the Savanna. 

    While this particular Resort hotel appears to be located far from the action of the theme parks, the bus service is, in my experience, the most reliable at Walt Disney World Resort. We have never waited more than just a few minutes for any bus that we needed to reach our destination, which is fabulous!

    You can expect about a 20-minute journey to Magic Kingdom Park, Disney's Hollywood Studios, or Epcot. If your plans involve a visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you should plan to arrive in about 10-minutes. Considering using a taxi service? Your travel time will be approximately the same, but keep in mind that we budget an additional 20-minutes to account for the time we might wait for our bus to arrive to whisk us away. With a taxi, that is unnecessary. I strongly recommend using complimentary and convenient Walt Disney World Resort bus transportation to Magic Kingdom Park since it brings you directly to the entrance to the theme park rather than the Transporation & Ticket Center, where a taxi would drop off.

    Come back and visit us, Kara!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
