    does anyone know how long to expect when traveling from downtown disney cirque dusoleil to grand floridian or vice versa and I plan to take the disney bus unless there is another way??

    Hi Jennifer,

    The bus ride from Downtown Disney to Grand Floridian takes about 30 minutes.  You'll want to factor in another 15-20 minutes to account for time spent waiting for the bus and walking to your destination.

    There's a great site called Our Laughing Place.  One of the tools is called Transportation Wiz -- you just plug in your start point and end destination, and it will give you transportation options and estimated travel time.  To access this program, go to  Once at the site, you'll see a menu on the left hand side of the screen.  Select Planning Tools, then select OLP WDW Transportation Wiz.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
