    How long should I allow to get from the Magic Kingdom to Downtown Disney by bus?

    Hi Shannon:

    I would take the walkway from the Magic Kingdom to Contemporary Resort (about 10 minutes) and take a bus from Contemporary to Downtown Disney.   Buses are generally scheduled to depart every fifteen - twenty minutes, give or take.  The bus ride itself should only take about fifteen to twenty minutes.   So it could take up to 50 minutes to get to Downtown Disney, but it could take a shorter amount of time.  I'm a crazy early bird, so I would budget 60 minutes and enjoy strolling around the shops if you arrive early.  Alternatively, you could take the monorail from Magic Kingdom to Polynesian and pick up the bus from the Polynesian to Downtown Disney.  That option shouldn't add too long to your trip.

    Enjoy your vacation.
