    What is the fastest way to go from Art of Animation resort to Magic Kingdom? and from Art of Animation to Animal kingdom?

    Hi Lidia!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Complimentary Disney buses will take you to the theme parks from Disney's Art of Animation Resort and will start running around 45 minutes before park opening times.  If you are visiting Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios, your quickest option is the new Disney Skyliner, giving you an amazing view as you travel along.  For the fastest option to Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, I would highly recommend using the Disney Minnie Van Service for an efficient and magical start to your day!  Driven by knowledgeable and friendly Disney Cast Members, these vans can be ordered by using the Lyft app on your smartphone, where you can also see the cost of using this service, and make your payment.  These vans can accommodate up to 6 Guests (including 2 child seats if required).  You can also order regular Lyft vehicles by using the same app.  It is worth noting that the Minnie Vans are the only cars permitted to bring Guests to the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park.  All other cars must drop off at the Transportation and Ticket Center where you will transfer to a ferryboat or monorail to take you to the entrance of the park (therefore adding extra travelling time).  

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news and updates on any events that may be happening during your stay.
