  • [Question] Walk time from Fantasyland to Ariel's Grotto?

    Hi all,

    Assuming there are very light crowds, but we are slow walkers with small children in the party, how long would you guess the walk from Fantasyland to Ariel's Grotto should take?

    Eyeballing the map I'm guessing 15-20 minutes, but I really don't know.

    It really depends on the lines to get out of the park, into DCA, and how many people are in the walkways. It'll take longer if a parade or something is going on.

      Say it is around 1:00 in the afternoon, no parade, no exodus of people coming or going?

        i would say less than 20 minutes. on a crowded day once, my friend and i got off Roger Rabbit and headed to Toy Story Mania, we did the end of DL to the end of DCA in 20 minutes.

          It would take me about 10 minutes.

          But I power walk.

              With the load times of the train, it would be much slower.

                Agreed.

                The train is good for the sole purpose of experiencing a piece of magic in Disneyland.

                As far as transportation goes, you're better off walking.

                  Actually, the train is great for getting around if your tired of fighting through people, want shade, and/or want to get off your feet. Just not speed. (Unless there is a parade on Mainstreet)

                    We always ride the train late at night when our feet are sore and want to get to the front of the park easier. It's nice for that, but when you're in a hurry or don't want to waste time, you're better off walking.

                      With small children? 20 minutes assuming no crowds and no entrance lines at DCA.
                      But I wouldn't assume no crowds. Maybe give it an extra 10 minutes in case you have to stop (for bathrooms or lines).

                      Even though it might not be faster, it might be easier on the kids to take the time to ride the train. If I was little, I'd think that it would be a mighty long walk to Paradise Pier.

                        Good point regarding the train, thanks for pointing that out. I guess swinging up to toontown station and then getting off at mainstreet might save a lot of walking for little feet.

                        I guess we could also walk to the hub and take one of the vehicles to the gate, assuming they run around that time.

                        Thanks!

                            If you plan to take one of the Main Street Vehicles to the gate, remember that they usually return backstage around 2-2:30PM to prep Main Street for the parade. The Horse Carriages stop around 1-1:30ish.

                              If you power walk: 10 mins. Normal walk: 15-20 mins.
