    Hi. I love this panel. Thank you for the great information. Can you tell me about how long it takes to get to each park from the Contemporary Resort? Thanks.

    Hi Lisamarie,

    Thank you for the compliment, we all love answering your questions!

    Staying at the Contemporary Resort means you are incredibly close to the Magic Kingdom, you can either take the resort monorail which will take about 20 minutes due to the park being the last stop (but it means that to get home will only take a few minutes as the Contemporary is the first stop) or you can take the walking path which takes about 5 minutes.

    To get to Epcot take the resort monorail 1 stop to the Ticket and Transportation Centre and transfer to the Epcot monorail, this should take approximately 30 minutes.

    For Disney's Hollywood studios and Animal Kingdom you'll need to take a bus, the journey to the Studios is roughly 20 minutes and for AK is 25 minutes. Remember though that you may need to wait for the buses or monorail to arrive so be sure to allow extra time for that.

    I like to use the Transport Wizard tool on to help me plan my journey's. Hope that helps and you have a great trip,
