    How do you get from the art of animation resort to the contemporary resort? We're scheduling a night time activity at the contemporary

    Hi Betty,

    Thanks for your transportation question. I'm happy to help you find your way to your fun-filled evening at the Contemporary resort. As you may know, buses do not run directly from resort to resort, but you're in luck. The Contemporary is probably the easiest to access from Art of Animation or any other resort.

    Simply catch the bus bound for Magic Kingdom from the depot in front of Animation Hall. Once you board the bus, travel should take about 20 minutes. (Buses run about every 20 minutes). From the bus station at the front of Magic Kingdom, it's an easy 5- to 10-minute walk to the Contemporary. Just bear right on the brick sidewalk as you exit the bus area.

    When you're ready to return, if Magic Kingdom is still open, you can reverse your course. If Magic Kingdom transportation has halted for the evening, you will need to catch a bus at the Contemporary to Disney Springs and transfer there to an Art of Animation bus.

    I would allow an hour for travel time. It likely won't take that long, but I hate to be rushed or stressed that I am going to be late for my dinner reservation or activity. 

    Thanks again for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Betty. Please let us know if we can help in any other way. Enjoy!
