    How long does it typically take for busses to travel from the value resorts to the parks?

    Hi Hannah,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds as if you are considering one of the value resort hotels at the Walt Disney World Resort. How exciting!

    In my value resort experience, I have stayed at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's Pop Century Resort and Disney's All-Star Sports Resort. The bus times to and from the parks, in general took about 45 minutes. To get a more accurate estimation, use the My Disney Experience Mobile App. The app has a nice Get Directions feature that will give you the transit options and estimated transit times from one location to another. Using the search feature, type in the name of the resort hotel that will be your beginning point. From Disney's All-Star Sports Resort, here are the estimated transit times by bus using the mobile app.

    • To Magic Kingdom - 43 minutes 
    • To Epcot - 41 minutes
    • To Disney's Hollywood Studios - 36 minutes
    • To Disney's Animal Kingdom - 36 minutes

    Hannah, when we are relying on bus transportation to the parks, I always allot at least an hour and a half to get to our first Fast Pass+ or a dining reservation in the theme parks. If you are still trying to choose a resort, I will say that Disney's Art of Animation Resort is super cute. The Big Blue Pool is AMAZING!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
