    Our family will be staying at the AOA resort arriving on 4-30-16. As far as transportation by bus, will there be transportation available to get to the parks for the extra magic hours? Will the bus be non-stop to each park?

    Hello Rebecca! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My family absolutely loves Disney’s Art of Animation Resort! In my opinion it is one of the best resort hotels, especially if you have a larger family. It makes for a nice vacation when there is enough room to spread out. We also love all of the different themes. My kids are especially crazy about the Cars section.

    The Complimentary Resort Transportation is a huge perk to staying at the Walt Disney World Resort. This transportation typically begins approximately 45 minutes prior to park opening, and continues to run until approximately one hour after park closing. This also includes bus transportation during Extra Magic Hours. The bus transportation also typically operates until 2:00 a.m. at the Disney Springs (formerly known as the Downtown Disney Area.)

    Bus transportation from your resort hotel does not share any buses with any other resort hotels! However, there are some instances during the day that your bus may stop at a water park to drop guests off before heading to the Theme Park, and on the way back it will stop back at the water park to pick guests up.

    I hope that you have a magical time! Be sure to say Hi! To Mickey Mouse for me!
