    How long does it take from Animal Kingdom to Epcot? Which way is quickest? We are not driving Thank you

    Welcome to planDisney, Denise! 

    You'll be arriving at Walt Disney World Resort just in time for the grand opening of TRON Lightcycle/ Run. I cannot wait to "enter the grid" and experience this new attraction. You'll also be there for the return of Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT Forever at EPCOT. Oh, boy! You've really lucked out, Denise!

    But "let's get down to business." Probably the quickest way to get from Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to EPCOT is by taking a Disney Minnie Van or using a rideshare service like Uber. The Disney Minnie Van Service works with the Lyft app. All you would need to do is follow these steps:

    1. Open the Lyft app within Walt Disney World Resort, and enter your destination (e.g. EPCOT).
    2. Confirm your pickup location (e.g. Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park) and tap “Select Minnie Van". If the Minnie Van service doesn’t immediately display, scroll through vehicle type options until it appears.
    3. Track your vehicle on a map provided by the app. You’ll also see the vehicle number to help you spot your car.

    If you'd rather use the free Disney transportation, your best bet is to take the bus to Disney's BoardWalk Inn. You then have a fairly short walk to the International Gateway entrance of EPCOT. Buses come every 20 minutes or so and the bus ride takes around 12 minutes. 

    I hope that's helpful, Denise! Thanks for stopping by planDisney. Have a wonderful trip.
