    What is the quickest and easiest way to get from Epcot to Animal Kingdom?

    Hey there, Ashley, and welcome to planDisney. One of my favorite challenges is planning the routes from one place to another at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    The quickest and easiest way is driving your car or taking rideshare like Uber and Lyft. This will be the most direct and rideshare will drop you off close to the Main Gate of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Another option is the Disney Minnie Van Service Connected by Lyft. I love this option because you get a custom music Disney playlist and the opportunity to ask a Cast Member questions about Walt Disney World Resort history.

    The complimentary Walt Disney World Bus Service has a direct route between the theme parks and is ideal if you are not in a rush. You could wait 20 or more minutes just for the bus to arrive at the EPCOT bus depot. Disney recommends you plan up to 90 minutes of travel time between destinations but we have never waited that long.

    Ashley, during your trip, be sure to walk the EPCOT World Showcase to see all the amazing topiaries, jam out at the Garden Rock Concert Series, and eat all the delicious treats offered at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival.
