    We are staying at Pop Century Resort and I would like to know how long it takes to get to each of the parks from this resort using the bus.

    Hi Fred!

    Pop Century is my favorite Disney Value Resort, and I think it currently has the best bus service on property.  That is because there is only one bus stop at Pop Century and it currently does not share buses with any other resort.

    It is only about 15 to 20 minutes to reach any theme park from Pop Century once you are on the bus and rolling (and even less to Disney's Animal Kingdom).  The biggest issue is how long do you have to wait for a bus in the first place, and will you actually get on the first bus that arrives.  Buses typically run about every twenty minutes and except for very early in the morning or just after a park closes, you can generally get on the first bus that arrives.  However, sometimes you can't.  By the way, during peak times, such as at park closing, Disney does provide extra buses since they know a lot of guests will want to return to their resort hotel at the same time.

    A good estimate is 45 minutes.  When I stay at Pop Century that is what I plan on it taking to get from there to any theme park.  However, that is a conservative estimate because I don't like to be late when I have to go somewhere.  If you want a ball park figure, I would use 30 minutes; of course it could be worse if you just missed a bus when you get to the bus stop.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
