    We have reservations for Mickey's Backyard BBQ next week. We are traveling the property via Disney Transportation. We are staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge and need to know how to get back to AKL after Mickey's Backyard BBQ. Thank you!

    Hello Ginger!

    You must be super excited about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World next week.  It will be here before you know it!  After Mickey's Backyard Barbecue, you have a couple of options.  You can take the boat from Fort Wilderness to Magic Kingdom Park.  From there, you will transfer to a bus heading to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.  You can also take a Disney Bus from Fort WIlderness to Epcot Theme Park.  From there, you will transfer to a bus heading to Animal Kingdom Lodge.  Not including wait times for transportation, your journey will take you around 40-45 minutes, Ginger.  Have a blast with Mickey!

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
