    We are staying at Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista in Disney Springs the night before we go check in at AOA. How far is the nearest Disney bus stop from this hotel so we can use the Disney Bus to transport to AOA?

    Hello there Kelsey!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for sending your question to us as you prepare for your magical Walt Disney World vacation. I'd be delighted to assist you today. Let's talk about arriving for your stay at Disney's Art of Animation Resort.

    The Wyndham Garden Lake Disney Springs Resort Area is just outside Disney Springs and is only a 20-minute walk to the resort bus stops. Unfortunately, luggage is not allowed on any Walt Disney World bus, so you cannot use bus transportation to travel to your new resort. I recommend using a ride share service like Uber or Lyft to go directly to Disney's Art of Animation Resort from your Disney Springs area hotel.

    If you have little ones in your party, there are a few options for riding with a child seat. In Orlando, you can select "Uber Car Seat" to locate a driver whose vehicle will meet your needs. My family and I often did this to travel between resorts when our Mouseketeers were small.

    Alternatively, you could send one member of your party and all of your suitcases in a standard ride share or taxi to Disney's Art of Animation Resort. At the same time, another adult would walk the children to the Disney Springs bus transportation area and take a motor coach to the resort. Remember, you won't be able to catch a bus from Disney Springs until midday when the shops and restaurants open.

    Finally, depending on the size of your group, you could walk to Disney Springs (with your luggage), open the Lyft app, and request a Minnie Van™. These adorable vehicles, driven by Disney Cast Members, accommodate up to six riders and are equipped with two child seats. A Minnie Van™ will take you directly to Disney's Art of Animation Resort from Disney Springs.

    I hope this has been helpful, Kelsey! Best wishes for a memorable stay, and if there is anything else we at planDisney can do to make it even better, don't hesitate to write back. You've got a friend in me!

    Have a magical day,
