    I cannot decide between ARA or PMovies, my husband is worried that the bus transportation to and from the parks will be a nightmare during open/close. I heard ART has its own buses and does not stop anywhere else....which would you recommend?

    Hi Andrea!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm assuming you're asking about the Disney Bus Transportation from Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's All-Star Movies Resort. I always enjoy letting someone else do the driving on vacation.

    You're correct that the buses to and from Disney's Art of Animation Resort do not share with another Walt Disney World Resort hotel. That's one of the reasons I recommend it to others.

    At park opening and closing, Disney's All-Star Movies does not usually share buses with other resorts, because it's busy. Buses at park opening at both resorts are generally efficient, with buses coming at more regular intervals.

    At park closing, right after fireworks, or after a nighttime spectacular, then all of the Walt Disney World Resort hotel buses are extremely busy. Sometimes you'll get lucky and catch a bus pretty quickly, but other times there so many guests trying to exit the park and return "home" that it will be congested. It also depends on the time of year you visit.

    I would give a slight edge to Disney's Art of Animation Resort, but I recommend choosing the theme that appeals most to your family. 

    If you have any other questions, please come back and see us real soon. Have a magical vacation!
