    What is the best way to get to Downtown disney from contemproray hotel and how long does it take? Would it be better to go to downtown disney from animal kingdom ? Is that a shorter ride?

    Hi Shilpi,

    Downtown Disney is easily accessible from any of the Disney resorts utilizing the Disney buses. You can take a bus from either the Contemporary Resort or Animal Kingdom Lodge bus stops to either the Marketplace stop or Pleasure Island.

    The ride is approximately thirty five to fifty minutes depending on traffic, the number of stops the bus makes and the loading and unloading of guests. Honestly the ride is very close in length from either location and I would plan on leaving from whichever location or resort you are at or  closest to at the time.

    Hope this helps!
