    How long is the bus ride from Epcot to Animal Kingdom? How long does it take to transfer between epcot and Magic Kingdom?

    Hi, Jaime!  Disney Mom Jo told me about a great website you might want to check out.  It is  If you scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, on the very right you will see "transportation wizard."  This will calculate your desired route and let you know an approximate time of travel.

    According to the site, your bus ride from Epcot to Animal Kingdom is approximately 16 minutes.  (Plus allow about 10 minutes wait time for the bus.)

    Your trip via monorail from Epcot to Magic Kingdom (with a monorail change at the Transportation & Ticket Center) is about a 44 minute trip.  (Plus the 10 minute wait time for the monorail.)

    This site is fun because it gives you some alternate routes that might save you some time.  Have fun mapping out your transportation around Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
