    Hello! What is the quickest way to get to Sanaa from Shades of Green? *We flew to FL, no car. Open to hearing a few routes in case there is a hiccup.

    Jambo! Kate and welcome to planDisney. Thank you for visiting us with this question about travel within the Walt Disney World Resort for your trip in November. What an amazing time of year to visit. The winter holiday decorations appear overnight after Halloween and some of the Disney Resorts Collection hotels are working on their famed Gingerbread Houses. It will be a festive time.

    The quickest way is by Uber, Lyft, taxi, or Minnie Van Connected by Lyft. All other routes involve multiple stops because there is no inter-Resort hotel Walt Disney World Bus Service transportation. If you want another route then you may take a bus from Shades of Green to the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC). From there take the Walt Disney World Monorail System (Express Monorail) directly to Magic Kingdom Park. The Express Monorail to Magic Kingdom Park is the fastest. Why you may ask because transport between Resots requires a stop at Disney Springs or a theme park. Once there walk to the Bus Depot and catch a bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. That is quite a journey and will take you well over an hour to travel there. It is much faster to hire a rideshare service.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Minnie Van Connected by Lyft is as close to a magic carpet ride as you will get outside of Magic Kingdom Park. With experienced drivers who love to talk Disney history and lore, bespoke music playlists, and the closest access to any theme park compared to other rideshare services, this may be just what you need to get you to  your destination.

    Kate, please write me back directly with any follow-up questions about your enchanted trip this November.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
