    How long is the wait for a bus from Epcot to Animal Kingdom and how long is the trip?

    Hi, Marilyn! Sounds like you have a magical trip around "The World" planned soon! The two parks you mentioned are my favorite places to visit while at Walt Disney World Resort. I could honestly spend every day just hopping between them and be absolutely happy. The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is underway currently, so I hope you have lots of time to spend sampling all the delicious tastes while there. While there are SO MANY amazing Global Marketplaces set up around the World Showcase Lagoon, I highly recommend you stop by each of the booths situated right between Future World and World Showcase. Flavors from Fire, Coastal Eats, The Cheese Studio, and The Wine & Dine Studio are, in my opinion, the best of the festival each year!

    Okay, now that I am thoroughly hungry and hopefully have tempted your taste buds today, let's chat transportation! Disney bus transportation is provided between Epcot and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. There is not a set schedule, but they tend to run in about 20-minute intervals. The ride over to the savanna should be about 16-20 minutes long. I hope this timing will fit your plans for the remainder of the day. If you find yourself in a bit of a rush, you could always use your My Disney Experience mobile app to call for a Minnie Van, the most adorable way to arrive at any destination. These pickup passengers right at the bus circle, so keep them in mind if it looks to be a bit of a wait for the bus.

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question and please let us know if you have any others!
