    Hello In wDW have 1900 park fare breakfast at 820 am and we are staying at the Wyndham resort and my first fast pass to animal kingdom is at the lion king show from 1030 to 1045 ... are we going to be able to make it ? can you tell me some traveling tips?

    Hi Altagracia!

    1900 Park Fare is a great breakfast buffet!  Mary Poppins is one of my all-time favorite Disney characters, so I enjoy having breakfast with her any chance I get.

    If you're eating at 8:20, I would anticipate that your meal will be over at about 9:20- 9:30. You may eat faster than that, but since you're wanting to meet all of the characters, in can take about an hour for them all to come around to your table for autographs and photos. Normally, I recommend a travel time of one and a half hours between a resort and a park. You could probably make it faster than that, but I know you don't want to miss your FastPass+ time for Festival of the Lion King (which, by the way, is AMAZING). 

    My suggestion for travel between Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and Disney's Animal Kingdom Park would be to use the Minnie Van Service. These vans can be ordered via the Lyft app on your phone. They can take you straight from the resort to the park. Regular Uber, Lyft or Taxi service would also work, but the Minnie Vans do come equipped with two versatile car seats and are quite adorable! 

    Again, the Walt Disney World Bus transportation system would take you from the resort to Animal Kingdom.  If things ran smoothly, you would be there in time. But, if you factor in waiting for a bus, traffic, walking into the park, getting through the security line and scanning your MagicBand to enter, I would be worried about being late.

    If you need any help arranging a Minnie Van or taxi, simply ask a Cast Member for assistance.

    I hope this helps!
