    Hello, are we allowed to still be in the resort after check out? We're staying at AOA in October. Thank you!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Vanessa! Thanks for stopping by and bringing us your question. 

    I’m so excited to learn you are getting ready to visit the most magical place on earth and are staying at my family’s most favorite resort hotel on property, Disney’s Art of Animation! I’ll never forget the look on my kids’ faces when we first arrived. They were mesmerized by the larger-than-life characters that greeted them. But my favorite was seeing my husband grinning from ear to ear. His dream of being an animator as a child came back to life walking through the resort and taking it all in. He’s not yet quitting his day job, but reliving his childhood dream made this experience an unforgettable one for him, as well as for the rest of us. It was pure Disney Magic!

    Vanessa, from the moment you arrive up until it’s time to depart, you are welcome to enjoy all your resort amenities. When you get there, if your room is not yet ready, you can drop your bags off at bell services and a friendly Cast Member will take them to your room once the room is available. Likewise, once you have checked out, bell services can hold your bags until it’s time to leave, so you can enjoy the resort or the parks if you still have some magic left in your park tickets.

    I hope you have a magical time enjoying all the benefits and perks of staying right inside the magic. Be sure to capture all the awesome photo-ops throughout the resort. Some of our best pictures from that visit were taken at the resort!

    Have a magical time and be sure to come back and see us for any additional tips, advice, or questions that might pop-up about your upcoming visit to the place where the magic is endless!

    See you real soon,
