    Can you please tell me what the approximate ride time (on the Disney buses) between the Pop Century Resort and each of the theme parks? I am wondering how much time I should set aside for getting to the parks each morning. We are coming 7/2-7/7

    Hey Tasha-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We love Disney’s Pop Century Resort with the Hippy Dippy and Computer Pools, giant Rubix Cubes and the fantastic food court, Everything Pop. You are going to have a retro-rocking time.

    Getting around Walt Disney World Resort is really special. You have so many modes of transportation (monorails, ferries, trams and buses) and they are all complimentary for Guests. In general you should allow Mickey’s transportation experts about 45-60 minutes to get you from place to place even if the actual travel time seems very short because loading and unloading passengers and traffic can vary. It’s always better to arrive early than late for anything Disney, just ask the White Rabbit. Some routes are direct like from your resort to the Magic Kingdom Park while others may require a transfer such as getting from one resort to another for a meal. Here is the quick on how long it should take once you get on the bus from Disney’s Pop Century Resort. These are the estimated bus travel times from Disney’s Pop Century Resort to each theme park.

    •22 minutes - Magic Kingdom Park
    •15 minutes - Epcot
    •15 minutes - Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    •20 minutes - Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park
    •20 minutes - Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
    •15 minutes - Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park

    Here is some other great information about the complimentary transportation you may find around the World. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to make your vacation more special.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
