    How far is Disney Springs from Disney World? We are staying at the Double Tree Suites by Hilton and have one day to spend in Disney World. What do you suggest? Our girls are 8 and 10.

    Hello Jan and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 
    How wonderful for you and your 2 lovely Princesses to be planning a magical day at Walt Disney World Resort, I can just imagine how excited you all must be! 
    DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Orlando is a Disney Springs Area Resort Hotel close by to Disney Springs and looks to be a really beautiful choice of Resort. DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Orlando provides Guests with a continuous bus shuttle service to all Disney Theme Parks which will be a fabulous travel option for you to utilise. I've had no personal experience of using this bus shuttle service, but I would imagine the same rule of thumb applies as when using Disney Complimentary Resort Transportation - I allow for up to 1 hour transfer time between Disney destinations, after all when on vacation no one wants to stress about travel times! 
    If I had just 1 day at Walt Disney World Resort I'd spend it at the Magic Kingdom Park and I'd be sure to make FastPass+ selections via My Disney Experience for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and perhaps Meet Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theatre as no visit to the magic is quite complete without meeting the Big Cheese himself! 
    Have a great Disney day.
