    hi please can you tell me easiest way to get from A.k lodge to disney springs market place last time we got lost and never got further than the big shops. the bus stop seems so far away now. i want to book a meal but worried we may not find it.

    Hi Sandra,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question. Disney Springs has become such a great destination, and I want to help you get there easily!

    The Marketplace neighborhood in Disney Springs is the area closet to the big Rainforest Café volcano, located in the northeast part of Disney Springs. On the Disney Springs web page, there is an interactive park map located in the blue Hours box in the right-hand side of the page. Looking at the park map, it’s the area on the top right. Sandra, I always get lost in Disney Springs, and I find that the friendly Cast Members at Guest Services, or the employees in the stores, are wonderfully helpful in pointing me in the right direction.

    The easiest way to get to Disney Springs from Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is using the adorable and convenient Minnie Van Service. The Cast Members at your resort’s front desk can help you set up Minnie Van access through the Lyft app, and then all you’ll need to do is request a Minnie Van and you’ll be on your way. Tell your driver which restaurant you’re going to and he or she will drop you at the closest taxi stand and may even be able to give you directions. Minnie Van service currently costs $25 per ride.

    If you prefer free transportation, Walt Disney World bus transportation will drop you off near the Coca-Cola Store. From there, walk in the opposite direction of the movie theater and you will be heading toward the Marketplace area, which begins when you reach the World of Disney Store.

    Enjoy your time in Disney Springs. There is so much to see and do, and you’re not lost if you’re having fun!

     Wishing you a magical vacation,
