    How much time should I allow to get from the Art of Animation Resort to the parks on the shuttle buses?

    Hello Tara!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It is a pleasure to answer your first question!

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is one of our favorite Disney Resort hotels. Your family is going to have so much fun staying there. Take time to visit each section of the resort, because they are absolutely beautiful, and kids love playing around the larger-than-life characters.

    Disney recommends that Guests plan 1.5 hours to travel between destinations throughout Walt Disney World Resort using complimentary transportation. If you have dining reservations at any of the theme parks or resort hotels then I highly recommend following this advice. It will allow you to arrive at the theme park, for example, go through park security, and arrive at your dining destination without having to rush. This is especially important if you are traveling with children. Please note that there is no direct transportation to other Resort hotels, so you will have to use more than one transportation.

    I stayed at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort with my family last year and the average time it took the bus to arrive at the theme parks was 15 to 20 minutes. The buses are convenient, clean, and very comfortable. Again, if you have dining reservations, allow more time to travel between your resort hotel and the theme park or Disney Resort hotel.

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope this helps you while planning.

    Best magical wishes,
