    How soon can I load a bus at art of animation to get to dining reservations for 8:10 at contemporary resort? What time does the buses start running from art of animation?

    Hiya, Brittany! Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question today.

    Ka-chow! Let's talk about transportation options at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. There are a few ways to get to Disney's Contemporary Resort from Art of Animation. 

    • Disney Bus Transportation: Buses typically begin arriving to pick up guests 45 minutes before the theme parks open. It's important to note that the buses do not take guests from resort to resort. The easiest way to get to the Contemporary would be to ride the bus to Disney's Magic Kingdom and walk to the Contemporary (it is a short distance). You can also walk to the Monorail from Magic Kingdom to the Contemporary if walking to the Contemporary is too much.
    • Minnie Van Service: This is your quickest way to get to the Contemporary directly from the Art of Animation. What I love about Minnie Vans is that they provide up to two car seats if you have Mouseketeers who use one, in-car entertainment, and charging cables for all your devices. Download the Lyft app to use this service. 
    • Other ride-share services: You can take an Uber or regular Lyft to the Contemporary if Minnie Van is not an option for your family. 

    Brittany, I hope you enjoy your stay at Art of Animation. There are many magical elements here, from Little Mermaid to Finding Nemo. Make a splash at Big Blue Pool, and enjoy Campfire fun near Pride Rock in the evenings. I love that resort guests can use Disney's Skyliner to get to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question, and reach out to us again with other questions you may have. 

    Magic Awaits!
