    How long does it take to travel by bus from the Grand Floridian to Animal Kingdom and the Grand Floridian to Hollywood Studios? What is the average wait time/how frequently do buses run between the resorts and Parks?


    I would give yourself a good 25 to 30 minutes for the trip from the Grand Floridian to Animal Kingdom via bus and 20 minutes or so for the ride from the resort to Hollywood Studios. Disney's official policy for buses says that you won't wait longer than 20 minutes for a bus. I find that to be true the majority of the time, although you can find the occasional guest who has experienced the exception to this. However, I have found that Disney is very responsive to influxes in bus crowds so relax and just let them do the navigating and driving.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
