    How long does it take to get to the parks & Downtown Disney from AoA? Thank You!

    Hi Lora!

    You are going to love the new Art of Animation Resort! It is located closest to Disney's Hollywood Studios Resort and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, but it is conveniently located near all of the parks. It will only take approximately 10 minutes to get to Hollywood Studios and Epcot and slightly longer, 15-20 to get to Animal Kingdom and closer to 20 for Magic Kingdom. The time really depends on traffic, but the resort is only about 3 miles away from Hollywood Studios and Epcot, 5 miles away from Animal Kingdom and 7 miles away from Magic Kingdom.

    It will take approximately 20 minutes to get to Downtown Disney using the Disney Transportation.

    One of the great perks of staying on site is that you can use the complimentary Disney Transportation from AOA to all of the parks, resorts and Downtown Disney so you can sit back and relax while planning your day!
