According to Google Maps it takes 1h from Pearson Terminal 1 to Canada’s Wonderland. A Go Bus, and then Viva bus to Wonderland.
Public transport from airport to wonderland not great
Toronto is not a great city for public transit (which is a real shame!). Getting from the airport to Wonderland would not be straightforward by taking the bus, GO and VIVA are two different regions, so separate tickets would be required, and 1 hour is being generous IF the traffic is OK and they aren't stopping the whole time. With a layover putting you on a timeframe, it would be a bit too much clock watching!
Car rental would only be worth it if it was cheap (which from the airport would be unlikely).
The one option that might be worth it is UBER as they are now allowed to pick up from YYZ, and of course given that they follow GPS would take you the route that avoids the worst of the traffic. 11 hours will give you "some" flexibility, but unfortunately Toronto got a bit stuck in the 70s when it came to expanding public transit infrastructure. You would think that Canada's Wonderland would be well connected given how popular it is, but unfortunately that would make too much sense!

Cedar Fair president and CEO Richard Zimmerman said, "The new dual-branded Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel will continue Cedar Fair's significant investment in Canada's Wonderland, one of the portfolio's largest and most successful parks. We expect strong attendance growth there, driven by the introduction of a new record-breaking roller coaster, Yukon Striker, and addition of an immersive holiday event, WinterFest, both launching in 2019. This development will mark the next evolution in the park's diverse offerings, providing park guests, business travelers and tourists with convenient accommodations in a growing area. The Hyatt Place and Hyatt House are respected brands worldwide and we look forward to working with the Hyatt team to ensure exceptional guest satisfaction."
The eight-story dual-branded hotel will be located on a 16-acre parcel of the park's land adjacent to Ontario Highway 400, 15 miles from Toronto Pearson International Airport. It will feature amenities important to both business and leisure travelers, such as free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, an indoor pool, 24-hour fitness center, coffee and cocktails bar, casual dining options, business center, flexible meeting and event spaces, and an outdoor sun deck.
"This dual-branded Hyatt Place and Hyatt House will be a great example of our continued focus on growing premium hotels that will attract business and leisure travelers alike," said Scott Richer, Hyatt's regional vice president of development for Canada. "We're thrilled to team up with the team at Cedar Fair Entertainment Company – we're confident the appeal and convenience of these two brands will meet the needs of guests visiting Canada's Wonderland and the growing city of Vaughan."
The project marks the sixth hotel in Cedar Fair's accommodations portfolio. The company currently owns and operates three hotels at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, and one at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, Calif.; an additional hotel is under construction at Carowinds in Charlotte, N.C.

As usual, my analysis is free of charge! Original enough to not steal someone else's quote as a signature
After going on Valravn this past weekend I'm stoked for Yukon Striker. I'm also happy we're not getting a proper second drop and instead going for another inversion. I'm also happy it wasn't a wing rider, while gatekeeper is a beautiful ride, Valravn is definitely more intense. Hopefully we get better theming than some stickers and faux decorations/semi decorated building.
