    We are visiting WDW for the first time this August and I'm curious about the travel time from Art of Animation resort to all of the parks. Is there anywhere to find this information, as I have made dining reservations and want to make sure they are doable?

    Hi Tasha!

    Congratulations on your First Visit to Walt Disney World! How exciting! You're going to LOVE Disney's Art of Animation Resort. It's so fun and vibrant. I stayed there just a few months ago myself and I thoroughly enjoyed everything about it!

    One of the great things about Art of Animation is that it has its own, dedicated buses. You won't be needing to worry about the buses making additional stops on their way to or from the parks. Once the bus arrives, you're on your way! Art of Animation is located closest to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot Parks. You'll find that the travel time to these destinations is only about 10 minutes once you're on board. Disney's Animal Kingdom Park is about 15 minutes away. The furthest location is Magic Kingdom, but even it is only about 20 minutes once you're on your way. The two Disney Water Parks, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon are each about 5-10 mins away as is Downtown Disney. Do keep in mind that these times are purely 'travel' and that you should also allow for wait time for your bus to arrive (usually no more than 10-20 minutes).

    In order to reach any Disney Dining Reservation around the property on time, it's generally recommended that you allow for a full 60 minutes of total travel time between parks or to other resort hotels.

    If you have any additional questions about the planning of your upcoming visit, please don't hesitate to write me back Tasha! I'd love to hear from you again and it would be my pleasure to assist you in any way that I can.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
