    We have reservations for 1900 park fare for 5:50pm will be at animal kingdom that day wanted to take either the monorail or boat to get there wantd to get an idea on how long both would take to get me there and how early to leave the park to arrive on time

    Hi Priscilla,

    Sounds like you have an exciting day planned!  

    Disney's Animal Kingdom (DAK) isn't accessible by boat or monorail.  If you are planning to go from DAK to 1900 Park Fare located at Disney's Grand Floridian, you can take a bus directly from DAK.  Once you've boarded a bus, the trip is around 25 - 30 minutes.  

    I like to err on the side of caution so I'd make sure I was at the gate of DAK an hour before my reservation at 1900 Park Fare. That way you have some time in case it takes a few minutes for a bus going to the Grand Floridian to arrive.  They always recommend checking in for your reservation a few minutes early as well.  It will also give you a few minutes to freshen or check out the lobby of the Grand Floridian which is AMAZING!

    If for some reason you are running late leaving DAK, you may want to grab a taxi to head over to the Grand Floridian so that you won't be late for your reservation.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
