    Alison Asked

    Hello! Can you please describe the AoA Shuttle? We will probably have a jogging stroller and I am concerned about folding it up and managing my 1 year old if I have to head back for naps alone. Is there a ramp? Can kids stay in stroller for the ride?Thx

    Welcome to the Moms Panel, Alison!  You are going to love Disney's Art of Animation Resort!  I enjoyed a lovely stay in The Little Mermaid standard guest room in December and loved the immersive storybook theming and attention to detail found throughout the entire resort!  Disney's Art of Animation Resort has its own dedicated bus service and does not currently share with any other Disney Resort. The Disney buses feature wheelchair lifts, but not ramps. Unfortunately, guests do have to fold strollers before boarding the Disney buses. Honestly, it can be very challenging trying to carry a collapsed stroller with a toddler onto the DIsney buses by yourself. During one vacation, I went back to my resort with my youngest, while my husband stayed in the park with our older two children during nap time. Needless to say, it was a very frustrating experience for me as my "little one" was 18 months old at the time and unable to easily get on the bus without assistance. You will not be allowed to open the stroller on the bus. With that being said, when my husband was with me, he would take care of the stroller while I held our "little one."  If you will have access to a car during your vacation, I would recommend driving to the parks if you plan to return for a midday break alone. Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort receive complimentary parking at all theme parks. I hope this information helps!  Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Alison!
    Happy Travels,
