    Hi. Looking only at busses, which DVC is easiest to get around WDW - Animal Kngdm lodge, Sarasota Spgs, or Old Key West? Want to know re # shared busses, #of stops before getting to parks, etc. First choices are booked & these are alternates. Thx

    Howdy Leslie!!  What a great question!!

    While transportation schedules can change, I can tell you how the busses are currently running and then give you info based on my prior experiences.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village shares with Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House. The busses for Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa don't share with other resorts.  However they have five stops once they arrive at Saratoga Springs. Disney's Old Key West Resort is similar.  No sharing with other resorts but there are multiple stops within the resort.  

    We have stayed at all of them and really - there aren't too many differences with regards to transportation.  Old Key West and Saratoga Springs give you a few more options just because you can walk or take a boat to Downtown Disney. 

    If, however, you feel like you may spend a great deal of time at Animal Kingdom, Kidani Village would be a great choice for you.

    Sorry - I don't know that I am providing much help.  We have noticed some vast improvements with the bus transportation over the past few years.  Yes - there are still glitches at times but, overall, things seem to run rather smoothly.  We plan accordingly and have never missed or been late for anything.

    If there are any other factors you would like to consider, please let me know.  I would love to know what you decide.  Any of them would be great and I know you will have a magical time regardless of the resort you choose.
