    We are traveling to DW at the end of January 2014. We plan to spend a day at Animal Kingdom and then have dinner at Raglan Rd in Downtown Disney. How long will it take by bus to get from AK to DD? Are they still trying a direct bus?

    Hi Kathryn!  

    My mouth is watering as I think of the Shepard's Pie at Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant.  Great dinner choice!  I love the food and the atmosphere.

    Unfortunately, Disney has stopped the test route that was taking guests directly from the Animal Kingdom to Downtown Disney.  The easiest route to take would be to jump on the first bus to any of the other resort hotels, and then transfer to a Downtown Disney bus from there.  Disney Transportation normally advises leaving yourself 90 minutes to get from one location to another.  You may have some time to wait before your reservation, but what a wonderful place to spend it.  

    I hope this helps and please let me know if there is anything else that I can assist you with.

    Magical Wishes,
