    We are staying off of Disney property. We are going to drive to Animal Kingdom and take Disney transportation to Epcot. What is the best way to get to and from Epcot from Animal kingdom? What time does the transportation start and end?

    Hi Emily!  Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel again!

    Sounds like you are planning to Park Hop.  That is a great way to experience several of your "must-do" attractions in the same day.  Complimentary transportation from Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to Epcot is by bus.  Just head out to the bus loop at the front of the park and look for signs indicating the designated waiting area for the bus to Epcot.  Another option would be Minnie Van transportation, for a fee.

    Emily, if I were you I would simply drive to Epcot.  It is about a 10 minute trip, and roadways are well marked making it easy to get to.  You will not need to pay an additional fee to park at Epcot; just show your original parking receipt when you arrive.  This option eliminates the need to return to Animal Kingdom to retrieve your vehicle.  Depending on park hours the day of your visit and how late you choose to stay at Epcot, you may find the bus route back to Animal Kingdom has ceased operation for the day.

    I hope that helps!  Please feel free to visit us again if you have additional questions.
