    How long does it take to get to Magic Kingdom from the Riviera resort? (By courtesy shuttle, etc)0

    Hi Julie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm excited to hear that you will be staying at Disney's Riviera Resort. This brand-new Disney Resort hotel is beautiful and will be the perfect place for your vacation "home". Not only will you be able to enjoy luxurious accommodations and fantastic dining, but you will also have convenient access to Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and other Disney Resort hotels using the Disney Skyliner!

    One of the nice perks of staying at the Disney Resort hotels is access to complimentary transportation. If you are using the buses to travel from Disney's Riviera Resort to Magic Kingdom, I recommend that you allow 90 minutes for your trip. This will ensure that you have plenty of time to wait for a bus and travel to the theme park. In my experience, the trip can be quicker, but I like to leave plenty of time for transportation so we aren't ever rushing during vacation!

    If you would like to travel faster to Magic Kingdom, you can take advantage of the Minnie Van Service. This service offers private, direct transportation throughout Walt Disney World Resort. If you will be using a Minnie Van to get to Magic Kingdom, I recommend that you allow 45 minutes to one hour of travel time. I love using Minnie Vans because it's quick and easy transportation that works particularly well when you are traveling to an early morning dining reservation!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
