    Hi Gail!

         Downtown Disney is one of our all time favorite ways to kick off our Disney Vacation!  You can count on the bus ride from the Animal Kingdom Lodge to take around 30 minutes.  I bet that your kids would love the larger than life stores and restaurants that populate Downtown Disney.  Two of our favorite eateries here are the Rainforest Cafe and the T-Rex cafe, both table service restaurants.  If you are looking for a quick bite, we LOVE Earl of Sandwich.  You can't leave this area without checking out the World of Disney Store - good luck leaving without buying a couple of souvenirs!    Finally, we always wrap up the night letting the kids play in the Lego building area; however, be warned that they may not want to leave.  Be sure to get a great night's sleep and have a fabulous trip!  

    Much pixie dust,
