    Hello! We will be making our first trip to WDW next month (2 wks to go yay!), we are staying in art of animation resort and have a reservation at royal table at 9am, how early should we catch the shuttle to make our way to magic kingdom?

    Hi Mereia! You will love the new Art of Animation resort at Walt Disney World! The decor in all the different areas is amazing and they have added some new technology making it a very sought after reservation now.

    You will not need to go to Pop Century to catch a shuttle and it is frowned on if you do. Art of Animation will have their own dedicated buses to all parks so this is the best solution for you when traveling throughout the property. I would catch the bus no later then 7:30am as you will need to not only get to the park but then head through early and walk to the castle. It is always good to check-in about ten minutes early if possible. I always prefer to be early then rushing to try to meet a reservation time and be stressed by the time I get there.

    Have a great stay and it sounds like you have done some nice planning!
