    Hi Kristin,

    Thank you for visiting us today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Just a few more days until you can Fall into Magic at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Moving around the Resort is super easy, and free too, thanks for the many Resort Transportation options available. And with the help of My Disney Experience mobile app, you can get point-to-point travel directions and recommendations.

    Walt Disney World Bus Service is available from Disney's Art of Animation Resort to Magic Kingdom Park approximately every 20 minutes, and travel times can take about 25 minutes. From there, you can take the Resort Monorail to both Disney's Contemporary Resort (first stop about five minutes) and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort (last stop before completing the loop, about 25 minutes travel time). Note that Disney's Contemporary Resort is just a short 15-minute walk away.

    Walt Disney World Water Transportation is also available to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort (Gold Flag taking about 15 minutes, second stop) and Disney's Wilderness Lodge (Red Flag and about 10 minutes travel) launching every 10-15 minutes. Finally, Bus Transportation is also available between Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Wilderness Lodge, with about 10 minutes of travel time.

    One last tip: travel distances throughout the Resort are short. Many Guests rely on taxi cabs or private services like Uber or Lyft. But why not travel in style with the new Disney Minnie Van Service? Happy planning!
