    We have reservations in December to go to the Rain Forest Cafe at 6:00 pm right after the Animal Kingdom Park closes. Do we have to worry about alternative transportation back to our Disney World resort?

    Hi Alan!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Dining at the Rainforest Cafe at Disney's Animal Kingdom is a great way to end your day at this amazing theme park, and making your reservation for the time the park closes will ensure you can squeeze every moment out of the park without missing anything while you dine!   Typically the Walt Disney World Bus Service will continue to offer a return service to the Disney Resort hotels for up to 2 hours after park closing. Please ensure you give yourselves enough time to walk to your bus stop, which isn't too far because Rainforest Cafe is located right by the entrance to the park.   You can refer to this Guide Map of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to familiarise yourself with the location of everything.  If you find you are enjoying your meal and don't wish to hurry, you might like to consider using the Minnie Van Service.  These are driven by knowledgeable and friendly Disney Cast Members and can accommodate up to 6 Guests, and will provide a door-to-door service.  Bookable by using the Lyft app on your smartphone, this will also display the cost of using this service.  Other Lyft vehicles can also be booked by using the same process.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
