  • In Resort Transportation

    Here is my question.
    I have breakfast reservations at the Animal Kingdom Lodge at 7:30am.
    I am staying at Port Orleans French Quarter.
    How difficult is it going to be for me to get from POFQ to the AKL?


    Thanks
    Danny

    Ouch .... my suggestion would be to take your own car or a taxi. I'm not sure is there are buses that early and even if there were, you'd have to transfer in a theme park or Downtown Disney, which would take you an awful long time for a ride which should take about 5 - 10 minutes.

      I was afraid of that answer.
      I guess the Taxi is the best bet.

        My advice would be to talk to the concierge. I'm sure Disney has a provision set aside for this, whether it be a taxi voucher or something like that. I would definetly ask them first, you are their guest, they will do whatever they can to keep you happy.

              WDW runs their normal buses early in the morning specifically for this type of situation.

              If you have an early breakfast reservation in a park, you can take a bus. On average, buses start running about an hour before a park opens to about an hour or so after a park closes. (During the busy summer season, I have been able to catch a bus at 1 hour and 45 minutes after a park officially had closed) Now, the bus' marquee may not say the specific park/place that you would want to go, but more than likely the driver is planning on making multiple pick-ups and stops. Just ask him or her where they are headed. Don't worry, you won't be late for your breakfast.

              Now, if you need "resort to resort" transportation, you could also take a bus and/or monorail from a park if the park's opening time coincides with your breakfast reservation.

              So, depending on the breakfast time and hours of the parks , you might need to take a cab. The front desk can call one for you, but there are usually a few hanging around just outside the main lobby. It costs about 11 or 12 dollars to get around WDW. With a tip of a few bucks, that's not bad.

                While Disney does not have their full scheduleed fleet running early, they do have "Breakfast Busses" for this purpose. I would inquire about it through Disney Dining or your hotel.

                  I found that taking the Disney bus system from Port Orleans to Animal Kingdom lodge was so time-consuming that a cab was almost a must. You can use the bus, but if, like me, you think your time on vacation is precious, this is one move that is probably worth the few extra dollars in cab fare. Less so if you are going to the parks, but even then, Port Orleans to the park has a lot of stops in-between.

                    Be prepared to spend an hour or so if you take the bus. It isn't fun.

                        We go from one resort to another all the time to eat and we like to go from one park to the next or even a water park so we rent a car every visit even though we are staying at a monorail resort.



                        Enjoy your breakfast at Boma. We love Boma for dinner and we tried breakfast for the first time this last December and it was great.

                          The taxi is definitely the best option. You could get there ok with the bus, but it very likely would be a time consuming process coming or going, if not both. You'll be much happier with a short ride over there via the taxi.

                            If taxi is not an option, the buses will start to run at around 6:45am, though check that at the desk as I think it depends on the tours running in the parks. Take a bus to AK and switch from there. But I urge you to check all this with the desk. The trick is to minimize the ride length, as that is all you can control. Ak to AKL is very short.

                              If the buses DO run that early, then you can take a bus to AK and politely ask the driver if he can drop you off at the Lodge.
