    Staying at Arts of Animation 4 adults & 4 & 6 yr old. How long will it take to get to Magic Kingdom Staying for 8 days

    Hey there, Howard. An 8-day vacation to Walt Disney World is a great amount of time to explore all there is to see and do. You are going to have a great time. 

    I'm excited to see that you are staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. I've stayed there numerous times and have always enjoyed it. There are so many fun photo opportunities around the resort, make sure to have that camera ready! From Disney's Art of Animation Resort to Magic Kingdom Park, I'd say it's about a 25-minute bus ride depending on traffic. You'll also want to allow plenty of time to wait for the bus to arrive, for everyone to climb aboard and to make it to your destination.

    Something that I find really useful is that you can now see scheduled bus times on the MyDisneyExperience mobile app. No more rushing out the door in hopes you haven't missed the bus! The app updates in real time so you'll want to check that for the most accurate bus information. Be sure to have the MyDisneyExperience mobile app downloaded on your phone before your vacation. It's a great tool that I use all of the time. Also on the app, you can see wait times for attractions, pictures that Photopass Photographers have taken, make FastPass+ selections, order lunch via the mobile ordering system and even open your resort room door. It makes vacationing at Walt Disney World that much more magical. 

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, I'd love for you to come back and ask me.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
