    Is there transportation from Art of Animation Resort to Disney Springs? Traveling with a 5 year old and 3 year old, plus Mom and Dad


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Yes, there is a direct bus service from Disney's Art of Animation Resort to Disney Springs. You pick up the bus just in front of Animation Hall, to the right as you exit the hall. This is also the same place that the return bus will stop when it brings you home. That hall, in case you did not know, is that main resort building with the restaurant, store, and front desk. 

    In case this is your first time, know that you do not need any car seats on the bus for the little ones. Also, the buses have enough internal space that you can bring a stroller with you, as long as you collapse it for the ride.

    BONUS TIP #1
    Disney has been updating their bus fleet, and you will find them to be a great way to get around. Many now have USB charging ports placed throughout the bus for those cell phone battery emergencies!

    BONUS TIP #2
    Some guests may not think much of food court dining, but if you are hungry, you will find that The Landscape of Flavors at the Art of Animation is a great place to grab a bite. The menu variety is far broader than you might expect.

    BONUS TIP #3
    If you really want a good morning cup of java and are using the Disney Skyliner to get to your theme park adventure that day, there is a Joffrey's Coffee & Tea Company kiosk that is a free-standing booth located by the Caribbean Beach Disney Skyliner station. You can enjoy a drink on your travels and arrive charged and ready to go!

    I stay regularly at the Art of Animation and Disney's Pop Century Resort, so please feel free to send me any follow-up questions you might have.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
