    Which resort has the animals? Can you get to this resort via bus from Disney springs?

    Hey Howdy Hey Catherine and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you for stopping by with your question on animal experiences at Disney Resort Collections hotels. I will be happy to give you more information on these encounters. 

    The adventurer's spirit will take you on over to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge for the experience of a lifetime taking a step inside the African-themed resort. This immaculate resort is themed to perfection with authentic artwork as well as spectacular views of the lush savannah. More than 200 animals call this home and spending some time just enjoying the resort and watching them is an amazing way to spend an afternoon or a whole day! 

    For the adventurous types, you can even take a safari ride at night to roam the savannah searching for the many animals that call this resort home. You can board an open-sided ride vehicle and be given a night vision device so you can see all who dare roam these lands at night on the Starlight Safari at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. This safari does come with an added cost and is available for all Guests of Walt Disney World Resort and not just those staying at the resort. 

    You are correct Cathrine that you can hop aboard a bus from Disney Springs to the resort. Resort Transportation is complimentary for those visiting Walt Disney World. Just know that transportation to and from Disney Springs usually stops operations to Disney Springs at 11:00 PM. If you are thinking about your Starlight Safari experience, you may also want to have a backup form of transportation available such as rideshares or Disney's Minnie Van Service

    All Disney resorts welcome visitors for the day so you can feel free to drop in and roam around at your leisure. If you have any other questions, please feel free to let us know, we are always happy to help!

    Have a Magical day,
