    What time does the parking lot open at AK? Would it be better to take the first bus or drive to get there for early dining reservations.

    Hello Erik!  

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is one of my favorite theme parks at Walt Disney World.  You have to visit Pandora- The World of Avatar, it is amazing.   

    Typically the parking lots at the theme parks open thirty minutes before the first breakfast reservations in the morning.  My family utilizes the Disney transportation from our Resort hotel just because it makes coming and going a lot simpler.   You don't have to park and walk all the way to the front of the theme park.  The Disney bus will drop you off near the entrance of the park.   At your Resort hotel ask what time the first bus will be running to Disney's Animal Kingdom  Theme Park, sometime it is earlier than you would think and would give you plenty of time to make your reservation.

    I hope you have a wild time at Disney Animal Kingdom Park.   If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask.
