    We have several reservations for breakfast and dinner and I was wondering about how long it will take to get there and which is the best way. We are staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and going to Chef Mickey, CRT, and Crystal Palace.

    Hello Katerina!  All of the great restaurants you have selected are in the Magic Kingdom area. The actual bus ride is approximately 15-20 minutes but I would recommend  you plan on being at the bus depot 45-60 minutes prior to each of your reservations.  This will provide you plenty of time to wait for a bus and commute over to your destination.

    For Cinderella's Royal Table and Crystal Palace, you'll want to board a bus headed to Magic Kingdom.  Both restaurants are located inside Magic Kingdom.  For Chef Mickey's, you'll also want to board the bus headed to Magic Kingdom and transfer to the resort monorail to Chef Mickey's. (Note: if you have a very early reservation for Chef Mickey's, let your bus driver know.  If his/her schedule permits, he/she may drop you off at the Contemporary.)

    Have a wonderful vacation and let us know if you have follow-up questions.  Diane  :)
