    Please tell me a little about the transportation at AOA. Does this resort share a bus with another resort? Is there a long travel time from resort to parks by bus? We usually stay at delux resorts due to better transportation options for small children.

    Hi, Claire!

    The brand new Art of Animation Resort has been getting rave reviews from guests.  From the pool to the food court to the beautiful rooms, this resort has been a hit!

    Art of Animation does not share a bus for going to the parks. There is just the one bus stop at AoA then it is off to the parks!   You might share a bus when using the Magical Express airport transportation depending on the number of guest being transported, but this will happen regardless of where you stay.   Count on 15 - 20 travel time on the buses to any of the parks, give or take a few minutes.  

    While you won't have the luxury of walking to Epcot like you would from the Beach Club or taking the Monorail to the Magic Kingdom from the Grand Floridian, I always find the bus transportation to be efficient.  I think you should give it a try, I think you might enjoy this awesome new resort!   Good luck deciding.
