    is there a bus at the resorts that you can take to ESPN sport center like you can to the parks? We just want to look at it, but do not have a car, we are staying at Art of Animation.

    Hi Cathy!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I don't blame you for wanting to check out the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.  It is a sports lover's paradise and I would think even a non-sports lover would be impressed!  

    There is not typically a bus that runs from the Art of Animation Resort. Here is the bus information from the ESPN Wide World of Sports website:

    Bus transportation to ESPN Wide World of Sports is available from Disney's All-Star Sports Resort, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney's Pop Century Resort on a limited schedule:
    Thursday - Monday     5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
    These buses will also run when events are taking place at the sports complex based on the following schedule:
    One (1) hour prior to sports complex opening until 11:00 p.m. or sports complex close, whichever is later.

    So, you have a few options.  1. Check at your front desk to see if any special events are going on that would mean there are more transportation options.  2.  Walk over the beautiful bridge from the Art of Animation to Disney's Pop Century Resort and take one of the regular buses.  (I would confirm that schedule at your front desk, as well, before walking over) 3. Take a bus from one of the parks to Pop Century (and then the sports complex bus) for an evening visit. 4. Take a taxi cab or Uber car from your resort (or anywhere) to the complex.  Your resort is less than two miles, so either ride will be very inexpensive. 

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
