    How much time should we allow to get from Animal Kingdom to eat at Chef Mickey's for dinner? Also, what transportation should we take there and then back to the Pop Century after dinner? Thanks & love the panel!

    Hi, Angie!    If you are spending the day at Animal Kingdom, you can simply get on a bus from the theme park over to the Contemporary.   Plan to be at the bus stop about 45 minutes prior to your reservation to allow for any wait time for the bus.   When you get to the Contemporary, take the elevator up to the 4th floor where Chef Mickey's is located.  

    After dining with Mickey and his pals, walk over to the bus stops in front of Magic Kingdom.   From the Contemporary, this is about a 10 minute walk.   Hop on the Pop Century bus and you will be back at your resort after a quick ride!

    If the night is still young after dinner and you are looking for a little more magic, hop on the monorail to visit either the Polynesian or the Grand Floridian.  Both are beautiful resorts and you can even take a walk on the beach at the Polynesian for a great view of the fireworks!    To get back to the bus to get you to your resort, just get back on the monorail and exit at the Magic Kingdom.   

    Have a magical WDW vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
