    How would I get from AoA to the Grand Floridian & how long will it take? Where is 1900 Patk Fare located there & then how do we set to the Electrical Water Pageant? I've never been to the Grand Floridian before.

    Hi Lora!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    The best way to get to the Grand Floridian from the Art of Animation Resort is to take a bus to the Magic Kingdom.  Don't worry!  You won't actually be entering the Magic Kingdom.  Instead, when you get to the Magic Kingdom, walk to the Magic Kingdom Monorail Station.  Be sure to get on the resort monorail to the Grand Floridian.  Buses run about every 20 minutes and it takes about 15 minutes to get from the Art of Animation to the Magic Kingdom; it is about a 5 minute walk to the Monorail Station and then about a 5 to 10 minute wait for a monorail.  The trip to the Grand Floridian on the monorail is very short as it is the first stop.

    Once you get to the Grand Floridian Monorail Station, just walk downstairs to 1900 Park Fare.  1900 Park Fare is a great place for character interaction and the food is good; I think you made a great choice!

    After dinner, just head outside to the beach to watch the Electrical Water Pageant.  Just check on the time when you first get to the Grand Floridian.  Just stop by the front desk before going to dinner to get the latest time.

    Afterward, you can reverse the whole process or just take a taxi back to the Art of Animation resort.  You won't have any problems getting a taxi from the Grand Floridian.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
