I was able to secure a reservation for my family at AKL- kidani for May 2022. We will be starting off at royal pacific for a night so I can get my roller coaster/HP fix in
It will be me, my husband and our two boys who will be 5 and 2 at the time. Typically, I rely on Disney transportation but the travel times to parks on the touring plans site seem a bit excessive (50 mins to MK?). In theory, the youngest takes an afternoon nap though I remember it was borderline impossible to get back to a resort before my oldest inevitably fell asleep in the stroller. Except on my animal kingdom day. Naturally, he was wide awake the whole time and was a mental toddler when momma wanted to stroll the gorilla trails! Toddlers man.
Those who have stayed there- is it worth it to rent a car to make it to the parks in a reasonable amount of time? Or are the busses not that bad? My kids are up before 6 am everyday (why?? Why are they always up so early??) so it won’t be an issue being at the bus stops early am for rope dropping!
It just seems like such a hassle to travel with car seats/boosters, not to mention a significant expense, but if it will save us hours per day then I’m game.
If the bus system is sufficient, can anyone recommend a good company I can use for the transfer from airport to universal/universal to Disney?
Thanks so much for your input! I really appreciate it!
