    What is the quickest way to/from Magic Kingdom from/to Art of Animation Resort? (Skyliner>Epcot>Monorail>M.K. or Resort Bus>M.K) I've heard bus timing is very lengthy.

    Welcome back to planDisney, Keri. I'm so glad you ventured out into the big blue world with Nemo and swam your way here today! Life is the bubbles when a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is on the horizon, don’t you agree?

    Keri, you will love Disney’s Art of Animation Resort! My family stayed there for my niece’s fifth birthday trip years ago and had an absolute blast! The Family Suites are incredibly spacious and have everything you need to feel right at home. The over-the-top theming throughout the resort is enchanting, especially the nod to Disney Animation in the lobby. Be sure to stop by the Cars section of the resort for some great photo ops with Mater, Lightning McQueen, and other Radiator Springs friends.

    One of the best things about Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is the variety of convenient transportation options you’ll have access to during your stay. The Disney Skyliner will get you to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT in a real jiffy, but you will need to utilize the bus service to get to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Magic Kingdom Park. The bus stops will have screens displaying the estimated arrival time for the next bus to those parks. I like to check those screens prior to hopping in line. If I have some time until the bus arrives, I’ll head inside the lobby to do a little shopping at Ink & Paint Shop or grab a quick snack at Landscape of Flavors.

    Alternatively, you can utilize Minnie Van Service via the Lyft app to get to where you need to be on property (a fee applies). You’ll be whisked away in an adorable Minnie Mouse-themed vehicle and dropped off right by the entrance to Magic Kingdom Park or whatever destination you choose. In my experience, this can be the fastest method of transportation to Magic Kingdom Park, but it is not complimentary and can book up quickly in the mornings.

    No matter what method of transportation you choose, you’ll be well on your way to magic and memories in no time, Keri. Have a splendid vacation full of joy, laughter, and all the pixie dust your heart can handle!

    Just keep swimming,
