    How do you use the complementary transpotation from park to park and how much time is lost on travel inbetwen the parks? Also can you use that transportation to Sammy watersports and Richard petty driving experience?

    Hi Jamie - I read in one of your other questions that you are staying at the new Disney's of Art Animation resort.  Lucky you!  I haven't read anything yet officially but I'm sure the bus transportation will be arranged the same way as the other value resorts.  When heading to the bus transportation stop (if you aren't sure where that is, ask when checking in), you'll notice that there will be separate lines for each park/Downtown Disney.  Just hop in the line for the park (or Downtown Disney) you'll be heading to.  Buses arrive approximately every 20 minutes and depending on what park you are going to, the travel time is between 10 and 20 minutes from your resort.

    There is not a bus available that will take you directly to Sammy Duvall Watersports at the Contemporary or the Richard Petty Driving Experience.  To get to the Contemporary, you'll want to hop on a bus headed to the Magic Kingdom.  From there you can either take the monorail, boat or walk (there is a walking path) over to the Contemporary.  Sammy Duvall's is located at the marina behind the Contemporary on Bay Lake.  

    To get to the Richard Petty Driving Experience, take a bus to Magic Kingdom and then take the monorail or ferry over to the Transportation and Ticket Center.  There is a bus stop located next to the kennel where buses will arrive approximately every 20 minutes.  

    You also have the option of taking a taxi to either destination - check with Bell Services if you need assistance with a taxi.  Diane
