    We are staying at a different resort , but we have dining reservations at Animal Kingdom , how do we get to animal kingdom from all movies Resort? thank you.

    Hey, Lynn! You have picked a fantastic resort to visit for your dinner! There are lots of spots across Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to see the animals that call the savanna home, so be sure to take some time before and after your dinner to roam out to my favorite such spot – the Arusha Rock Savanna Overlook. You will find cultural representatives who would love to share stories about these animals and their homelands with you.

    To make your way from Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, you have a couple of options. First, Disney provides complimentary transportation between all resorts and the theme parks. You will need to take a bus from your resort headed to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Once you arrive, transfer over to the bus that is headed to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. You will need to check the transportation board at the bus circle to see which numbered stop is designated for that resort. To return to your resort, you will just need to reverse that plan. Note that transportation from resorts to theme parks will continue until an hour prior to park closure, and bus service from the theme parks to resorts will continue up to two hours after the park closes. If you have a late dining reservation, then you will need to check on the timing of the theme park’s closure and make alternate plans to return to your resort, if needed.

    Another option you have is to use Minnie Van Service. This is the most adorable way to arrive at any destination across Walt Disney World Resort. You can use either your My Disney Experience mobile app or the Lyft app to call for a red and white polka dot vehicle to whisk you quickly to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. If you are short on time, then this is the way to go! Also, if you have a late dining reservation and know that you may have issues with the plan home we spoke about earlier, then this is really the best option for you.

    I hope this information helps you plan a roaring great time at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge! Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.

I enjoy giving advice about itinerary and FastPass+ planning, Epcot's fantastic festivals, Memory Maker, and transportation at the Resort. The time I spend at Walt Disney World Resort is distinctive because it is the one place I can forget other responsibilities and focus on having the time of my life with my family!
