    WE are starting in animal kingdom and ending at magic kingdom. can i park i magic kingdom in the AM and take a bus to animal kingdom? we are afraid of not getting parking if we have to move our car mid day.

    Hiya Karen - it's your pal Ryan, again!

    I just saw that you also asked this question, so I wanted to make sure it didn't go unanswered. I stand by my recommendation that you park at the Theme Park you want to start at and then move your car with you when you're ready to hop to another park.

    Because Guests aren't currently able to hop between the Theme Parks until 2 p.m., bus service between the Theme Parks doesn't usually begin until about 1:30 p.m. each day - it won't be available in the morning. Bus service between the Resorts and all four Theme Parks runs throughout the day, but service between Theme Parks lines up with park hopping hours.

    So, even if you were able to park at Magic Kingdom Park in the morning, you would need to transfer from the Transportation and Ticket Center to a Resort via the Monorail, and then take a bus from the Resort to Animal Kingdom - that's a lot of effort in the morning and you should be experiencing all that Animal Kingdom has to offer instead!

    You know, Karen, the animals tend to be most active in the morning hours, so I recommend getting to Animal Kingdom as soon as you're able to and starting your day with an exhilarating Kilimanjaro Safaris adventure!
