    Hi visiting dec18-23 whats fastest way get from grand floridian to downtown & from animal king lodge to MK? Any tips on where to get a spot during MVMCP?

    Hi Amber,

    A visit to Walt Disney World during the holidays is truly magical!

    The quickest way to get from Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to Downtown Disney is by bus. The journey will take approximately 25 minutes.

    The quickest way to get from Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to the Magic Kingdom is by bus. The journey will take approximately 20 minutes.

    (When using Disney's complimentary transportation service, you will also need to allow up to another 20 minutes for time which will be spent waiting for the next bus to arrive.)

    In order to get a good view of Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade and Holiday Wishes during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, I would highly recommend you grab a spot  at the very top of Main Street U.S.A. or at the Castle Forecourt Area.

    Wishing you a magical trip!
