    I have reservation for 8:00 at Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom. I already know it's best to ride the bus to Magic Kingdom. What transportation is best to get to Animal Kingdom to get there on time? Driving or Bus?

    Dear Monique,

    Thanks for reaching out to us here again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I see that your arrival dates are fast-approaching and I'm sure that you are getting super excited!

    I personally always recommend taking Disney transportation because it just relieves so much of the worry for me when I'm traveling around the Walt Disney World Resort. For Disney's Animal Kingdom, the buses drop off nice and close to the entrance so you should have no problem. I recommend giving yourself an hour or so between getting on the bus and arriving at your reservation inside of the park. If you are waiting at the bus stop of your hotel at 7 a.m., you should be good to go!

    Moms Panel tip - Have you downloaded the My Disney Experience app to your mobile device yet? It has point to point times and directions! Just click on your destination and follow the prompts. It's such a great update of the app!

    Have a magical time!
