    We are staying 1 mile outside of the park and have a character breakfast scheduled in Animal Kingdom - how much time should I allow to get into the park? Thanks Tammy

    Once you get to the Animal Kingdom gate, you will still have to park the car, walk through the parking lot, go through security, go through the entrance turnstiles, walk to the restaurant, and check in at the podium there. If you are at the AK first thing in the morning for a character meal, all of this should go fairly quickly, but just to be sure, I'd plan for all this to take 30-40 minutes. You could be quite early, but I always work under the "better safe than sorry" philosophy.
