    How long does it take to walk from Illumination at Animal Kingdom to Artist Point Restaurant at Animal kind Lodge? We have the dinner reservation at 9 pm.

    Dear Lan-Phuong,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great planning question about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort!

    You are going to absolutely love your magical dinner at Artist Point at Disney's Wilderness Lodge! I highly recommend the charcuterie plate there, just delicious!

    If you are planning to view IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, which is at Epcot, you would then board a resort bus to Disney's Wilderness Lodge in order to make your Advanced Dining Reservation. I am not sure of the time of IllumiNations on the date that you are planning to go, but it is possible that the time might be quite close and you may not be able to do both. I would give yourself at least 60 minutes from the bus stop at Epcot to being seated at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, since you can never quite be sure what time the bus will arrive and how long it will take to load and arrive at the destination. 

    I recommend that you download the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device. You'll be able to click on your desired destination and the app will tell you exactly what transportation to use and how long it will take you to get there. It's so convenient!

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
