    We are staying in off disney resort. Is it better to drive my rental car to Animal Kingdom? Or is it better to take a rental cab like Uber? Also, what time does the ferry/monorail service start from parking lot of magic kingdom?

    Hi Rakesh,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    The best answer may depend on how far from Disney's Animal Kingdom your resort hotel actually is. I suggest that you compare the cost of an Uber to and from the park to the cost of parking. My guess would be that driving and parking would be more cost effective, but check the Uber prices from your resort hotel when you arrive.

    With Walt Disney World® Water Transportation, the operating hours could vary depending on water and weather conditions, so we always check when we arrive. The Walt Disney World® Monorail Transportation starts 30 minutes before the earliest park opening to one hour after the last park closes. You can check the park hours online or in the My Disney Experience Mobile App.

    As you continue to make plans, make sure you have Disney Park Pass system and advanced dining reservations. Even though my family does use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, we prefer having guaranteed dining times. Also make sure you have the mobile app downloaded so that you can make, modify, and cancel plans on the go! 

    Rakesh, we are so excited to welcome you to the magic!

    Magic and memories,
