    We have a reservation for Chef Mickey’s. We will be checked out of our resort. We are interested in looking at Art of Animation for our next visit. Can we visit Art of Animation, take the skyline to Epcot then the monorail to the Contemporary?

    Yellow there, Lisa! Welcome to planDisney. 

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will surely draw you in with its bright and colorful details! --I’ll try to hold off on more puns, but I can’t make any promises. It's just that I’m so excited for you to see all the various scenes from some of our favorite classic Disney animated movies! They’re sure to make you feel like you’re a part of Ariel’s world, be wheely impressed by the Cars Family Suites, swim with Nemo and his friends, or relax and feel all the Hakuna Matata vibes like Simba! Overall, this Disney Resort hotel is full of fun; I’m sure your party will love visiting, and I’m not lion! —Okay, now I really am done. 

    Lisa, I wouldn’t recommend taking the Disney Skyliner from Disney’s Art of Animation Resort to then taking the Disney Monorail from EPCOT to make your dining reservation. You see, the Disney Skyliner will drop you off near the International Gateway entrance of EPCOT, which is on the opposite end of the main entrance. The main entrance is where you’ll find the Disney Monorail. Additionally, to get from one entrance to the other, you must go inside EPCOT and walk towards the front of the park. You would need valid admission, and although this is a great way to work up an appetite for your dining reservation, I have another suggestion that may be easier!

    Instead, from Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, I recommend taking the complimentary bus transportation to Magic Kingdom Park. From there, you can take the pathway and walk to Disney’s Contemporary Resort (this takes about 10-15 minutes) or take the Disney Monorail! 

    Chef Mickey’s is such a fantastic dining experience! It’s a great way to meet your favorite pals without waiting in a queue. Plus, you get to enjoy a scrumptious meal! 

    I know there are so many incredibly magical Resort hotels to choose from, so to help you decide if Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is the perfect one for your next visit, check out Disney’s Art of Animation planDisney Pocket Guide!  

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Lisa!
