    How long does it take to shuttle from art of animation to chef mickeys?

    Hi Melissa,

    Will you be staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort during an upcoming visit to Walt Disney World? If so, I expect you will have a fantastic time stepping into the worlds inhabited by some of the most beloved and well-known Disney animated characters. In addition to the fantastic theming throughout the Resort, during your visit you will also have access to the largest Disney Resort hotel pool on property - The Big Blue Pool. This zero-entry pool, which was inspired by the movie Finding Nemo, even boasts its own underwater speakers!

    Melissa, if you are looking to travel from Disney's Art of Animation Resort to enjoy a delicious buffet meal at Chef Mickey's at some point during your stay, in most cases your best option would be to take Disney's complimentary bus transportation to Magic Kingdom. Upon arrival at Magic Kingdom, you will then be able to take the monorail to Disney's Contemporary Resort, or simply take a short walk across the street using the convenient walkway from the Magic Kingdom bus drop. 

    If you haven't already done so, I recommend downloading the My Disney Experience Mobile App to your mobile device. The "Get Directions" feature will provide step-by-step directions between any two locations on Walt Disney World property after calculating the fastest route taking into account all forms of Disney's Complimentary Resort Transportation.

    Wishing you a MAGICAL upcoming Disney vacation and a delicious experience at Chef Mickey's. Be sure to say hello to the "Big Cheese" for me!
