As my ADR window is fast approaching (our trip is late August), I’m struggling with my planning around our day at Animal Kingdom. We are traveling with our 5yo son and are planning midday breaks, but we are also staying at Wilderness Lodge which I’ve heard is not the most efficient at getting people to and from AK.
So here is what I’m wondering:
- Has anyone stayed at WL and can give me an idea of travel time to and from AK?
- We’d like to hit up Tusker House, but can’t come up with a good time to do it. Before the park opens is the cost effective and would be nice to get inside early, but we loved Boma’s dinner 10 years ago when we went and have heard Tusker is similar so I kinda want to do lunch or dinner, but also didn’t want to lose time in the park, especially if our travel is unreliable.
- Is there anywhere to get a reasonable “rest” closer to the park? AKL maybe? I’d say we could use the lunch and then find somewhere to relax at the park, but I don’t remember a AK as having much, if any, air conditioned hang outs.
Anyway, any suggestions would be appreciated.
