    Can I stay at a resort in Animal Kingdom and visit Magic Kingdom park during early hours? Will there be transportation?

    Welcome to planDisney, Naga4India! Thank you for submitting your question to us. I am happy to help!

    As a guest at a Disney Resort hotel, you have magical perks to enjoy, including Early Magic Hours! This is available at select theme parks on select days. As a guest at an Animal Kingdom-area resort, you can get in line at your bus pickup area an hour before Magic Kingdom opens. Disney Bus Transportation begins 45 minutes before park opening. The Disney Resorts closest to Disney's Animal Kingdom Park include:

    Early Magic Hours is my favorite time to begin my day. I love rope-dropping and starting my day at a character meal. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Make an advanced dining reservation at The Crystal Palace, and say hello to Winnie the Pooh and Friends. If a table-service meal isn't something you are interested in, visit Sleepy Hollow and pick up the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich to go and continue your day!

    Naga4India, thank you once again for visiting us! If you have other questions before your visit, send them to me. I am always happy to help!

    Magic Awaits!
