    Staying at art of animation. I have read the bus trip to magic kingdom can take up to 25 miuntes. Would it be better to just get in our vehicle and drive? If we do this will we have to pay for parking once we get there?

    Hey there Talisa!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your questions!  You are absolutely correct. The bus ride to Magic Kingdom Park from Disney's Art of Animation Resort can take approximately 25 minutes. However, I would not personally recommend driving to Magic Kingdom Park. Although my family often drives to the theme parks, we always use Disney transportation when traveling to Magic Kingdom Park. I have always found it to be much easier and quicker to simply take the bus which will drop you off near the front entrance of the park. If you drive to Magic Kingdom Park, you will need to park at the Transportation and Ticket Center and then transfer to the monorail or ferryboat. That being said, you will receive complimentary parking as a Guest staying at a Disney Resort hotel. 

    I hope this information is helpful in making the best decision for your family. Please don't hesitate to visit us again with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip! 

    Happy Travels,
