    Suzannah, you gave a great answer about driving directions to the parks from Pop Century. Can you give the approximate time it will take to drive to the parks as well? Time to drive and time to get to the front entrance? Thanks so much!

    Hi Christina! Thank you so much, I'm glad the answer helped and happy you decided to ask me a question! From Pop Century, I'd say it takes about 20 minutes to get to Magic Kingdom (Transportation and Ticket Center) or Epcot and about 15 to Animal Kingdom. Disney's Hollywood Studios is a lot closer and probably only takes about 10 minutes to drive and park there.

    Of course depending on traffic, traffic lights, crowds in the parking lot, time to park, walk to the tram or the front entrance, it could all vary a bit. Also when heading to the Transportation and Ticket Center for the Magic Kingdom, you then have about 20-25 minutes depending on the wait time to get from the parking lot tram to the Ferry or Monorail, to the turnstiles.

    What my family does is usually devote at least 20 minutes drive time, and then at least 15 minutes to get IN the park if we are heading for an Advanced Dining Reservation or something specific like that. Depending on where we park, it's sometimes easier for us to just walk to the front entrance rather than taking the tram, since we have the stroller to unpack and pack and unpack, so we keep that in mind in our travel time too.

    I hope this helps with your planning and please feel free to ask me another question any time! :)
