    What is the best option for transportation to the Magic Kingdom for morning dining reservations (8:30)? We are traveling with a toddler, will have our car, and are staying at AoA. Are we better off to drive or take the bus? And how long should we budget?

    Hi there Danielle!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Based on my own personal experience, I would recommend taking the bus to Magic Kingdom Park from Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  Parking for Magic Kingdom Park is located at the Transportation and Ticket Center. Once you have parked, you would then need to either catch the monorail or ferryboat to the iconic park. In my opinion, the additional transfer makes the overall trip much more time consuming. Whereas, the buses drop off Guests just outside the main gate of Magic Kingdom Park. I would allow approximately 25 minutes for your travel time by bus.

    I hope this information helps in making the best decision for your family.  Please don't hesitate to visit us again with any additional questions that you may have as your vacation draws closer. Best wishes for a magical trip, Danielle!

    Happy Travels,
    Jodie
