    Hi - For disabled. How far is the walk from the bus drop off from Art of Animation to the Disney World / Magic Kingdom entrance? AND how far is the walk from the monorail drop off from the Grand Floridian to the Disney World / Magic Kingdom entrance?

    Hi there, Amy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We appreciate you taking the time to stop by and ask your Walt Disney World Resort question!

    Walt Disney World Resort does an excellent job providing accommodations and services for their Guests with disabilities! This, of course, includes their Guests with mobility disabilities. As someone that experiences a mobility disability myself, I am also often curious about the distances between specific locations at Walt Disney World Resort!

    According to my own calculations, it looks as though the distance between Magic Kingdom's bus stop area and the main gates is approximately 0.34 miles. The walk from Monorail station to Magic Kingdom's front gates is slightly shorter at approximately 0.12 miles. Keep in mind, these distances are approximations and may vary in person. 

    If you are concerned about walking between the Transportation areas, I would recommend renting an ECV or wheelchair from a Disney Featured Provider. These companies provide mobility device rentals to Guests and are even able to deliver directly to your Disney Resort hotel! By renting through an outside company, you will not have to wait until you get to the parks to acquire a mobility device. 

    I hope this information answers your question and assists you in continuing to plan for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
