    I am looking into staying at the Animal Kingdom park and want to know if the Magic Kingdom is easily accessed from there or not.

    Hi Kimberly:

    I love the Animal Kingdom Lodge. So much so, that my family chose it to be our "home" resort when we joined the Disney Vacation Club. I really enjoy the benefits and amenities of Animal Kingdom Lodge, such as the savanna views, the fine dining, and the unique kid and family activities. While the resort is considered to be sliiiightly far away from Magic Kingdom, you can easily access Magic Kingdom from Animal Kingdom Lodge. You best transportation bet would be to use Disney's complementary bus transportation for resort guests. Disney buses are scheduled to run on average every 20 minutes from all Disney resorts. We've found that buses from the Animal Kingdom Lodge run even more frequently and have rarely had to wait a full 20 minutes for the bus. Not counting the walk from my room to the bus station, I budget 45 minutes, including waiting time and travel time, to get from the Animal Kingdom Lodge to the Magic Kingdom, and I usually arrive ahead of schedule.

    You can also drive if you have a car, or take a taxi.

    Enjoy your vacation.
