Trains from Barcelona to Zaragoza

We are planning to visit our daughter in Zaragoza in December, and will be arriving in Barcelona. Is the AVE the only train available on this route? I know it is the quickest, but we will have several children and 4 adults and were looking for a less expensive option. Many thanks for any advice.

The AVE to Madrid takes 1h23-1h40 to Zaragoza, direct, but there is also a slow train, taking 5h02 (dep. 09:03, arr. 14:05) and otherwise, you can do it in 5 1/2 - 6 1/2 hrs buying separate tickets Barcelona to Lerida/Lleida and then Lerida-Zaragoza. If you have trouble with the RENFE site, try https://loco2.com/en

But why not just take a bus?! ALSA takes 3h30 e.g. dep. 09:30, arr. 13:00, and cost is about €16 per person. See https://www.alsa.com/en/web/bus/home - it departs from Barcelona (Nord) bus station, near the Arc de Triomf metro station on metro line L1: https:/…how-to-get-to-estacio-nord.html
