    Hi Rema!

         Staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge is an amazing experience that can only be had in Walt Disney World! The Disney buses typically run every 20 minutes. The Animal Kingdom buses are located to the left as you exit the Animal Kingdom Lodge.  I will list for you approximate times from the Animal Kingdom Lodge to each of the four Theme Parks and Downtown Disney. Keep in mind that the times that I am giving your are travel times once you are on the bus.

    Animal Kingdom: 5 minutes
    Epcot: 10 to 15 minutes
    Hollywood Studios: 10 to 15 minutes
    Magic Kingdom: 20 to 25 minutes
    Downtown Disney: 15 minutes

    I hope that your stay in Animal Kingdom Lodge is truly magical on your next Walt DIsney World vacation!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
