    How much time do I actially need to get from Art of Animation to cape may cafe using Disney transportation. Do I really need to alot 1.5 hours???


    I agree, an hour and a half to get from the Art of Animation to Cape May seems like far more time than you might need! Let me give you a route and time estimate that might make more sense.

    Because you are staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, begin by hopping on the Disney Skyliner. When you arrive at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort Skyliner station you will have to switch over to the Skyliner route that heads towards EPCOT, and that will take you the rest of the way. The first leg of your Skyliner journey will take about 6 minutes, and the second will take about 14.

    After arriving at the EPCOT station, your walk to Cape May Cafe, located in Disney's Beach Club Resort, is about 1/4 of a mile (2/5 of a kilometer), so that means about a 10 minute walk.

    All told, your trip could take as little as 30 minutes. But you must consider the added time needed when waiting to board the first and second legs of your Skyliner journey. Often, I have walked right onto a car, with no wait at either station. But if you are traveling at an extremely busy time the waits can get longer, so plan accordingly. I would suggest that the day before your reservation you ask the hotel front desk staff how much time they would budget for this trip, since you could tell them when you are going, and they can check park hours.

    If it were me, and I were going for breakfast which can be the busier time on the Skyliner, I would leave 45 minutes to an hour before the scheduled reservation time. That way I am not rushed, and if I get there early I can explore the resort hotel a bit.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
