    On average...how long are the bus rides between the Art of Animation and the theme parks? Just to plan for naps/getting there and back. Thanks!

    Hi Jenna!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Thank you for asking such a good question - I know many Guests will be wondering about travel times between the Disney Resort hotels and the four theme parks and both water parks. There's a neat little feature on My Disney Experience where we can access directions between two places at Walt Disney World, and it will also show a suggested time for the length of the journey.  From the home page of the My Disney Experience mobile app, go to My Plans, and click on See All Plans, then scroll down for your Disney's Art of Animation Resort Reservation and tap on View Room Details.  At the bottom of the screen there are several options, including Choose MagicBands, Check Dining Plan, and Get Directions - click on that button. You will see a space to enter your location details,  From and To. What I would recommend is to have a play around with this, entering your chosen routes at various times of day (before you go on your vacation), and you'll get a good idea of travel times during busy or quieter times of the day.  There are other ways of using My Disney Experience to help you plan your magical trip - you can make your FastPass+ reservations (60 days in advance as you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel), make any dining reservations around the whole of the Walt Disney World Resort (up to 180 days in advance) and check Wait Times in the theme parks.  Happy planning!

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We are happy to help.
