    Art of Animation transportation...does it share a bus with another resort? We have a 2 and 4 yr old...would like a suite, but would also like to be close to MK...WL or Art of Animation??? What is the difference in times for transportation??

    Hi Kris,

    The Art of Animation is a new resort. We've been given the word that it will have its own bus line!

    The bus travel times to Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and the Animal Kingdom will be somewhat similar from the AoA and the WL. However, it will be MUCH faster to get to the Magic Kingdom from the Wilderness Lodge than it would from the Art of Animation. You'll save about 20 minutes of travel time.

    These two resorts will give you a very different experience. The WL is a deluxe resort with feature pools and multiple table service restaurants. Even though AoA is new, it will only have a food court and a basic pool.

    Personally, I'd go for the WL for the convenience factor. If you're look for a two-room experience, you may want to consider a villa-style room at the Wilderness Lodge. A one-bedroom villa would be very similar to the family suite (but with the addition of a full kitchen and a washer/dryer), but also has the great proximity to the Magic Kingdom.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
