    Does art of animation have an internal bus to get from the main lobby to the little mermaid section?

    Hi Michelle,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    It sounds like you are planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with a stay at Disney's Art of Animation Resort! I love the theming of this resort! As you clearly know, this resort is expansive. At this time, there is no internal bus. So, I suggest that you make a room location request. Take a look at a resort map online to see which Little Mermaid rooms are closest to the main building. We always make room request when we do Online Check-in and if we cannot make our specific request through Online Check-in, I call to ask a Cast Member to note that request on our reservation. Although not guaranteed, we have often had our requests fulfilled. 

    When I have stayed at this resort in the past, the walk from my room to the main building were not bad. I did, however, have to remember to allot myself 10 minutes to get to the bus stop in the mornings. If you purchase refillable mugs, I would also suggest that you take those mugs with you so that, when you return to the resort in the afternoon or evening, you can refill them on the way back to your room.

    As you prepare for your trip, also make sure you have downloaded the My Disney Experience Mobile App. We just returned from a trip on Christmas eve and used the mobile app for almost everything including Disney Genie and Genie+ service (making Lightning Lane selections). We also always appreciate being able to use Mobile Dine Check-in for our advanced dining reservations.

    Michelle, keep planning! Remember to make advanced dining reservations. Currently that dining reservation booking window is 60-days prior to your visit if you have not made any already. We are delighted to welcome you to an Incredible Disney visit!

    Magic and memories,
