If you haven’t stayed at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort yet, you are in for a truly magical experience. In my previous Blog , I described a little bit about The Lion King Suite and the Resort. But here, I will be sharing few things to do while you are at the Resort.
Magic Express : Magic Express is an Airport shuttle service which is available on request . It’s a complimentary transfer from the Orlando airport to the hotel & vice versa. This service also picks up and delivers luggage directly to guestrooms for those arriving between 5 AM – 10 PM.
Magic Band : The Guests checking in the resort are given a Magic band which is an all in one device to make your trip easy. Using Magic Band, ●You can enter all the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. ●Your Magic band is your key to your Hotel Room. ●You can also make purchases with your Magic Band(including food). ●Even before you enter the theme park, you can reserve your access to selected attractions. So that you can avoid those long waiting lines.
Extra Magic Hours : Walt Disney World theme park will be open an hour early and three hours later for guests staying at any of the Disney Resorts in Orlando.This is the best time to do your favorite rides.
Movie Time : You can also get to see Disney movies while you are relaxing in the pool or garden. The movie time is usually at 8pm every day.
Complimentary Balloons : Disney’s Art of Animation Resort gives a complimentary Mickey Balloon to all the Kids and for Adults who are celebrating their Birthdays,Anniversaries etc.
Fireworks : You can also watch Fireworks from Disney Parks from various locations around the resort. Few of them are – A parking lot view room, on the 4th floor of The Little Mermaid section , On the bridge connecting the resort to Disney’s Pop Century Resort and different spots around Hourglass Lake.
Play Area : There are few Themed play areas for kids inside the resort at different locations.
Take an art lesson : There is a area where you can learn how to draw a Mickey and other characters in a step by step procedure. And the best one are displayed in the hotel lobby for a day .
Unlimited Drinks : If your buying a 17$ Mickey Cup in the resort then you will get unlimited drinks(non-alcoholic) on your entire stay. It’s definitely worth if you are staying for more than 3days.
Buttons : Not only at the Disney parks, you can also get your Disney buttons if you are staying at the Disney Resorts.
Stickers : Stickers are kids favorite and you can get as many Disney character stickers as you want at the resort for Free.
Disney Store – There’s a Disney store located inside the resort , It sells not only Disney products but also some baby food and medications.
Pressed Pennies : There are few machines which can press a penny into a souvenir keepsake. This will only cost you $0.51.
Complimentary shuttle to all Disney resorts : Every Disney Resort has it’s own theme and the best thing about staying at Disney resorts is you can visit all other Disney resorts for free in Disney buses.
Kids Activities : They do have some or the other activities for kids at a scheduled time everyday. You can check the timings of those activities in the television provided in your Room.
Arcade/Game Room : There’s also a Arcade/Game room available at the resort for reasonable prices and the good thing is, it is open 24/7.
Switch on the Television : I know this is the last thing you do (sometimes never) when you are on a vacation at a place like Disney. But I would definitely recommend you to switch on the TV once in the morning before you leave your room because there’s a list of activities displayed about what’s going to happen in the Resort and all the Disney parks during that day. This list will actually help you planning your day according to the activities which you don’t want to miss.
Photo ops : This is OBVIOUS. There’s a photo op on every step you take . I believe you can easily spend an entire day just to stroll around the resort clicking some pictures for your Instagram.

Complimentary shuttle to all Disney Parks : You don’t need to pay for those pricey parking at the Disney Parks. Disney Buses pick you up right in front of your resort and drops you at the parks.There’s a Bus for every 20 minutes.
I totally loved and enjoyed all the benefits of staying at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and will highly recommend this place to everyone. Last but not the least, I really Thank Disney for making my vacation Magical.
