    Using Disney transportation, what is the most efficient way to get from Animal Kingdom Lodge to Coronoado Springs resort? We'll be staying at AKL and have a dinner reservation at one of the restaurants in CSR. Thanks!

    Hi Danielle!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    The only Disney Transport that serves both Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is the Walt Disney World Bus Service.  However, to travel from one Disney hotel to another you will need to transfer buses at a theme park or Disney Springs, as there are no direct links between the hotels.   As you are based very close to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, I would take a bus to there, and transfer to another bus for Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.  You will need
    to allow around 60-90 minutes for travelling to your destination by bus via Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

    I would recommend using an Uber or Lyft ride as an inexpensive and more time-efficient alternative. You just need to download the Lyft app to your phone which gives you a selection of available cars (with prices and varying pickup times).  You make payment on the app before your ride, so it's really simple to use.  You can also order a Minnie Van via this app if you fancy travelling in style!  

    Dining at other Disney Resort hotels is something I really enjoy, and in my opinion some of the best restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort are located at the hotels.  You can also take the opportunity to explore a little, and maybe find somewhere different to stay for your next vacation! 

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  You can also send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news about events that may be happening during your stay.
