    Hello -
    We are staying off site but having dinner reservations at Sanaa the day we will visit the Animal Kingdom. We plan to drive and park at Animal Kingdom. Once in the park - is it possible to get to Sanaa (and then back to the park - it has late hours) without moving the car and driving? What would be the easiest option?

    Get on an Animal Kingdom resort marked bus and it will take you there and then back to the park when you're done.

    You don't have to be staying at a Disney property to ride their transportation?

    Everyone is currently welcome to use the whole transportation system. Enjoy the "motor coaches".

    For anyone interested in a little history-Years ago, transportation cast members were suppose to check for resort IDs for everything other than the monorail or ferry from the TTC, for which you needed a valid park ticket. This policy was hit or miss and often they did not check, especially on the buses. If you played by the rules though, if you were not staying on property and wanted to use the transportation system, you were supposed to buy a Transportation Pass for a nominal fee that allowed you access to all forms of transportation.

    From the Disney website:

    https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/faq/transportation/public-complimentary-transportation/

    Q. I’m not staying at a Disney Resort hotel. Can I use the monorails, buses and boats to get around Walt Disney World Resort?

    A. Yes. All Guests have complimentary access to our network of monorails, buses and boats. If you would like to visit multiple parks, enjoy a nice dinner at one of the Disney Resort hotels or shop at Disney Springs, you can leave your car parked in the theme park lot and use our transportation network.

    While there are many ways to get around Walt Disney World Resort, here are several recommended routes that may be convenient for Guests who are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, but wish to visit multiple parks:
