  • Hi Mark,

    In order to get from Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to the Downtown Disney Area, your best bet would be to catch a bus from Animal Kingdom to Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and then from there, you could either walk, take a boat or bus to the Downtown Disney Area.

    There is a fantastic transportation wizard tool available at which I like to use to assess what is the best route to take and how long it will take to get from one place to another whilst at Walt Disney World. This might be of help to you when planning how to get from A to B during your visit. (I would recommend that you add an extra 20 minutes for each journey in order to allow for time which will be spent waiting for the next bus/boat to arrive.)

    As a general guide, I would always recommend allowing at least an hour when travelling from one place to another at Walt Disney World.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
