    I am planning a trip to WDW for March 2018. This will be the first "official" trip for my then 4 year old daughter. How much of a hassle is it to get from Art of Animation to the parks? Does the bus take a real long time? Thanks Cary

    Hey Cary!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us such a great question about Walt Disney World Resort Bus Service.

    As a Florida Resident, I often travel to Walt Disney World Resort in my own vehicle. However, I always use the Walt Disney World Resort Bus Service when visiting the theme parks, water parks and Disney Springs. Using the Walt Disney World Resort Bus Service saves my family time and money. It is complimentary, convenient and reliable!

    You will be happy to know that it is not a hassle to travel from Disney’s Art of Animation Resort to the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. In fact, it is quite simple! Walt Disney World Resort buses operate at approximately 20-minute intervals. Once a bus arrives it will take you approximately 20 additional minutes to travel to your destination. Travel times vary depending on traffic, weather and season. Occasionally, buses arrive even sooner! I always choose to use the bus service when not staying one one of the Disney Resort hotels with monorail or boat service. As a Guest of Disney's Art of Animation Resort, bus service will you your best option.

    Cary, for your personal reference please keep the following information in mind:  
    •    Bus service from Disney Resort hotels begins 45 minutes prior to park opening and ends 1 hour prior to park closing.
    •    Return service to Disney Resort hotels ends 2 hours after park closing.

    If you have any additional questions, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again. We are always here to help you plan your travels around “the World”!
