    Hi! We are staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani Village and have dinner reservations at the Yacht Club. What is the best way to get from one resort to the other?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jenny!

    Can you believe your Walt Disney World Resort vacation begins tomorrow??? I'm sure you must be so excited to take part in The World's Most Magical Celebration!

    I think you have made a great choice in planning to dine at Disney's Yacht Club Resort.  Both Ale & Compass Restaurant and Yachtsman Steakhouse are excellent choices, and favorites among the planDisney panelists.  The most efficient way to travel between Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas and Disney's Yacht Club Resort is to drive.  Guests with confirmed dining reservations are welcome to park at the resort hotel while enjoying their meal.  If you will not have a vehicle with you, you might consider using a ride-share service.  Traveling between Disney Resort Hotels using complimentary resort transportation will often require a transfer.  My recommendation would be to take a bus from your resort to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  From there, it is a pleasant 20-minute walk to Disney's Yacht Club Resort.  Boat transportation is also available if you prefer not to walk, or you could also take the Disney Skyliner to the International Gateway station at EPCOT.  (Walking is the fastest option.)  Allow 90 minutes to reach the restaurant.  If you happen to arrive earlier than expected, enjoy some time strolling along the path around Crescent Lake, soaking up views of Disney's BoardWalk -- it is so beautiful in the evening!

    Be sure to check park hours for your return trip.  Typically, transportation to Disney Resorts Collection hotels is available up to 90 minutes after park closing.  If it is late, you might need to transfer buses at Disney Springs.

    Did you know, you can find transportation directions in the My Disney Experience mobile app?  Use the search button on the home screen to type in your destination, and then choose "Get Directions"  You'll be able to enter your starting point, and the app will show you what your travel options are.

    I hope that helps!  If you have any additional questions, please feel free to stop by planDisney again anytime.  Enjoy your stay!
