    Thanks so much, Jodie! How long is the bus ride from AoA or BLT to BlizzardBeach and Typhoon Lagonon? Kids are 2&4 yrs old - would you suggest BLT or AoA? Love t be able to walk to MK fr BLT, but AoA looks great too! Hard choice & appreciate you

    Welcome back to the Mom's Panel and thanks for the question, Jessica! Guests staying at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort traditionally share a bus with guests staying at DIsney's Polynesian Resort and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. From Bay Lake Tower, I would allow 45 minutes to one hour travel time to Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon. When we were at Disney two weeks ago, the bus bound for Blizzard Beach also went to Disney's Animal Kingdom and Typhoon Lagoon shared a bus with Downtown Disney. I just wanted you to be aware that you may encounter additional stops. Disney's Art of Animation Resort will have its own dedicated bus line so there should be no additional stops to pick up guests at other Resorts. I would allow 30 - 45 minutes travel time between Disney's Art of Animation Resort and the water parks. Because of the ages of your children, I would have to recommend Bay Lake Tower for your vacation. Although I do love Art of Animation Resort and cannot wait to book a stay there myself, with two "little ones" you will be traveling via the Disney buses to all theme parks and Downtown Disney. If you plan to spend the most time at Magic Kingdom, then being able to easily travel back to Bay Lake Tower will be so convenient for those midday breaks or naps.Our planning strategy with "little ones" has always been to arrive at the parks early and then head back to our Resort for an afternoon nap.We then return to the parks in the early evening refreshed and ready to enjoy the evening activities. If you will be traveling during the summer months, your four year old may really enjoy having the slide at Bay Cove Pool. You may also want to factor in the variety of dining choices at your fingertips by being on the monorail line and being able to watch the Electrical Water Pageant from your Resort. I hope I have helped in making your decision.Please feel free to ask me as many questions as you like. Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Jessica!
    Happy Planning,
    Jodie
