    Hi, we will be staying at the art of animation hotel next month and I am wondering how long of a bus ride it is to the magic kingdom? with stops included

    Hi Colleen,

    I've got good news for you: The buses from Art of Animation go directly to each of the four theme parks. No stops along the way. It's one of the things I love about Art of Animation and about Pop Century, which is adjacent.

    The last time we stayed at Art of Animation, I timed the rides. From the time the wheels started rolling at the resort to the time the bus stopped in front of Magic Kingdom, it was 18 minutes. The time to Animal Kingdom is similar. Epcot and Hollywood Studios usually will take less than 15 minutes each.

    You will find all the bus stops in front of Animation Hall, which is in the center of the resort and also holds the food court, gift shop, arcade and reception desk. Buses depart for each park about every 20 minutes.

    I hope that helps. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you as you make your plans. You are going to love Art of Animation with its beautifully themed sections. Enjoy!
