    Dear PDP, This is our first Disney World visit and wanted to know how long does it take to get from Art of Animation to the magic kingdom? Will there be some Halloween decorations in October or only The 50 anniversary decorations

    Warm greetings from the Sunshine State, Nicholas! Welcome back to planDisney! We're always happy when our friends stop by to see us again!

    My family has a stay at Disney's Art of Animation planned in October, too! We're so excited! The Family Suites are amazing, and we love exploring all the larger-than-life figures in the themed courtyards. They make for some great photo ops!

    When it comes time to visit the theme parks, Disney's Art of Animation Resort features direct bus service to the Magic Kingdom Park. Your actual travel time is about 15-20 minutes, but be sure to build in some wiggle room in case you have to wait in line for the next bus to arrive. Also, there's a really handy feature in the My Disney Experience app on your phone that tells you what time the next bus is scheduled to arrive at your Resort hotel. It shows you bus schedules in real time, so you can see when the next bus is due before you even leave your room!

    And of course, when you're traveling to EPCOT or Disney's Hollywood Studios, you get to ride on the Disney Skyliner! It's not only a super convenient way to get around, it's also a whole lot of fun!

    Nicholas, it was a pleasure answering your question today. I hope it helps you have an "artful" vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks again for stopping by, and we'll see ya real soon!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

    Kathy K.

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
