    I have reservations at a resort hotel specifically Animal Kingdom Lodge and am staying at the Polynesian Resort. How do you get to the resort? It seems there are only busses to the parks.

    Hello Gail!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.   I hope you are having a blast planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.   I have a trip coming up in a few weeks and I am bouncing around my house like Tigger with excitement.  I'm sure you will be too, when your trip gets closer. 

    If you plan on using Disney's complimentary transportation you would need to transfer at either a Theme Park or Disney Springs in order to get from Resort to Resort.   The quickest way to reach Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is to take the Resort Monorail over to Magic Kingdom and then head to the bus depot.   At the depot hop on the bus heading to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.   

    Another option is to use Disney's Minnie Van Service, this service works in sync with the Lyft ride sharing app.  Once you arrive at your Disney Resort Hotel a Cast Member can help set it up.  A Minnie Van would pick you up directly at the main lobby of your Resort and take you directly to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.  The price for using a Minnie Van is currently $25 per trip per vehicle and you pay using the Lyft app.  I have used this service quite a few times when I have had early morning breakfast reservations and it was very quick and convenient.  

    I hope this has helped, Gail.  Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you.  It's always a pleasure to help out a fellow Guest.
