    I was wondering how long it would take using Disney transportation to get from Animal Kingdom (around closing) to Epcot for a dinner reservation? What's the best way to get there? Just trying to make sure I have enough time and the quickest way.Thanks

    Hi Kim! For the convenience of guests wanting to park hop, buses run directly from Animal Kingdom to Epcot. The ride itself takes only about 15 minutes, but you'll need to factor in time to wait for the bus (and perhaps a second one if lots of people have the same idea at park closing) and time to enter Epcot and walk to a restaurant. For this reason, I'd recommend you make your reservation at least an hour and fifteen minutes after you plan to leave the Animal Kingdom. If you're planning to dine at a restaurant in the World Showcase, you may find it's quicker to take a bus from the Animal Kingdom to the Beach Club resort and then walk to Epcot from there. You'll enter at the International Gateway near France and would have a shorter walk to some restaurants than if you use the main Epcot entrance.

    Hope this helps! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions!
