    Do you still offer bus service if i book at animal kingdom lodge

    Hello Jamie!

    Welcome to planDisney! Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is a family favorite, and we have stayed there many times. Where else can you start your morning off by enjoying your coffee with a view of the zebra and giraffe having their breakfast? From the soaring lobby and views of the savanna, to the vast collection of African art the exotic and delicious dining, this resort has something for everyone.

    All Disney Resort Collection Hotels offer included transportation between the resorts and the theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs. Throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, you’ll find a variety of transportation options depending on the route, including buses, water transportation, Monorail service, and even the Disney Skyliner! From Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, you’ll have bus service to all destinations. My family prefers to leave the driving to Disney and so we always take the bus. From Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, it is about a 20-minute bus ride to Magic Kingdom, 10 to 15 minutes to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and 5 to 10 minutes to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

    If you are asking about transportation from Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort Collection Hotel, that depends upon your arrival date. For Guests like you that are arriving in 2021, Disney’s Magical Express Service will give them included round-trip transportation between the airport and their resort. For Guests with stays beginning January 1, 2022, Disney’s Magical Express is being retired. Those checking-in beginning in 2022 may wish to consider the new Mears Connect Service, taxi, ride-share, or car rental.

    I hope this helps to answer your question, Jamie. Wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Have a Magical Day!
