    Hi Moms -- Thanks so much for all the great information! What is the best way to get from Animal Kingdom to Downtown Disney for dinner at Raglan Road, and how long do you think we should allow? 17 days and counting!

    Hi Judith,

    I would say that your best bet would be to to either:-

    1/ Take a bus to Disney's Pop Century Resort and then transfer to a separate bus heading to Downtown Disney

    2/ Take a bus to Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and then from there, take the boat or walk to Downtown Disney.

    I always like to allow at least 1 hour when using Disney transportation as you have to factor in wait time as well as the journey time itself.

    For future reference, there is a fantastic transportation wizard tool which I like to use available at It allows you to enter where you will be travelling to and from within Walt Disney World and then provides details on the best route(s) to take as well as giving an indication of the amount of time that the journey will take. I would add an extra 20 minutes onto each estimated time to allow for the time which may be spent waiting for your designated mode of transport to arrive.

    I hope that this helps with your planning and wish you a magical trip!
