    Does the AoA share buses with any of the other resorts and about how long does it take to get from the resort to the theme parks?

    Welcome Courtney,

    I bet you are excited to stay at the new Art of Animation resort. It is so much fun and the attention to detail is phenomenal.

    I have great news, the Art of Animation does not share buses with Pop Century or any other resort for that matter. Once you board that bus, you are headed right toward the magic of the theme parks, water parks, or Downtown Disney!

    A great tool I like to use to determine the best route to take between locations on Walt Disney World property is the "transportation wizard" at Once you go to this website, simply click on the link in the upper right hand corner and from there you can enter your starting point and ultimate destination on property. It will give you estimated travel times and alternate routes, if there are any! Keep in mind that the times they provide are travel times only and do not include waiting times at the bus stops/boat docks/or monorail stations.

    I took the liberty of looking up a few estimations for the parks from your resort. Magic Kingdom will take about 22-25 minutes, Epcot will take about 15-18 minutes, Hollywood Studios will take about 15-18 minutes, and Animal Kingdom will take about 20-23 minutes. Again, remember these are travel times only and purely estimations!  

    Have a magical stay at Art of Animation and enjoy making memories in the parks.
