by Leap on June 30, 2021 7 Orlando

Guide to Animal Kingdom Transportation - PinterestDisney's Animal Kingdom has a variety of really fun transportation vehicles ... a time rover, a safari truck and everything in between as you explore through jungle landscapes, river rapids and tropical trails. We just can't get enough! Luckily for our frog legs, Disney's Animal Kingdom complimentary transportation makes getting to the park easy and simple for everyone. You won't be stranded in the wilderness after a long day!

Whether you're hopping back to your Disney Resort hotel or to another park, Animal Kingdom complimentary transportation will get you where you need to go. Though limited in options, you can always count on the bus system. Here is our overview of Disney's Animal Kingdom complimentary transportation.

Our Guide to Disney's Animal Kingdom Transportation

You can connect almost any two points within Walt Disney World with free transportation, especially if you're staying on-site at a Disney Resort hotel. Even if you're staying off-site and have a Park Hopper ticket, you can utilize the complimentary buses, monorails and more to make the leap from park to park. Animal Kingdom does have the most limited transportation options directly to and from the park itself. But don't worry: It's still just as easy to get there and back! (Transportation options may be limited during Disney World's initial reopening phase. For more information about what you need to know when visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom, hop to our full guide here!)

The perks don't stop at free transportation for Walt Disney World Resort guests ... there are tons of other benefits too! Check out our favorite reasons to stay on-site at Disney World.

Animal Kingdom Complimentary Transportation - Bus

*Note: Most areas throughout Walt Disney World Resort, including Disney theme parks, Disney water parks, Resort hotels and the Disney Springs area, are accessible by bus. Some bus routes may require transfer from one bus to another. If you are looking to head straight to Disney Springs from Animal Kingdom, there is no direct route, so you'll need to go to a resort and then transfer from there.

Do you have information on each Disney Resort regarding how you get to each theme park from that specific resort? Thanks!

Hi Marie!

We have other guides to transportation for Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and EPCOT (in addition to this Animal Kingdom guide). These guides follow a similar format and also include the resort hotels. Animal Kingdom is unique because the only mode of transportation available is by bus, but the others will list all of the different forms of transportation, such as Skyliner, monorail, bus or boat.

Keep hopping!

I've never heard of a bus from DAK to TTC or vice versa. Buses from MK to other parks depart from the bus depot at the parks, no?

Hi there!

You are correct - this was the old way of operating, and buses coming from another park to Magic Kingdom will go to the bus depot rather than the TTC. We've adjusted our post accordingly. Thanks for bringing it to our attention! :)

Keep hopping!
