    Hello, I will be staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Is there any airport transportation to the Lodge?

    Jambo Maureen, welcome to planDisney!

    You have selected a great resort hotel for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!  I make it a point to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge whenever I vacation at Walt Disney World.  I enjoy having breakfast at Boma - Flavors of Africa on the days I plan to visit Animal Kingdom Theme Park.  The buffet offers a wide variety of food offerings and I especially enjoy the Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs, the Avocado, Papaya, Grapefruit Salad, and the Sticky Buns.  Of course, part of the reason that I enjoy the breakfast here is that I'm also able to spend some time before and after my reservation watching the animals on the safari at the observation areas located throughout the resort.  I find Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to be a very peaceful resort hotel.

    Now that we've established that you have selected a great resort, let's talk about airport transportation!  Up until a few years ago, Disney used to offer a Magical Express bus service option.  It was wonderful!  That service has since been discontinued but the company that Disney used for bus transportation, still offers the transportation services to all Disney Resort Hotels.  I almost always use this company, Mears Connect, for my transportation to and from the Orlando airport and I have not had an issue to date.  I find their schedules run like clockwork and their pricing is reasonable. There are also many private car services you can use - a search on the Internet will yield many results.  I have used Happy Limo in the past without issue.  Of course, you can also use Uber or Lyft services as there are plenty of driver's available and willing to take you where you need to go.  Personally, I am most comfortable using Mears Connect.

    Maureen, I hope you find this information helpful.  I truly hope you enjoy your stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. If you have further questions we can assist you with, please let us know!
