    Hi, I already booked and paid for our hotel AOA for May 2013. We are not doing the dining plan, should I purchase the tickets and hopper now or wait til we arrive? Or is there a package of some sort I should purchase without the dining plan? Thanks!

    Hi Wendy!

    I'm so excited that you are staying in Disney's new Art of Animation Resort! You are just going to love it! I spent an entire day there just walking through and enjoying all of the theming in each section. It's pretty awesome!

    Now, as far as your Park tickets go, I like to buy mine as part of my Resort package because it's really convenient to pick up everything all in one place. What I'd do in your case is go to the Park tickets order page and input the number of tickets you need with everyone's ages and get that pricing. Then, I would suggest calling 407.W.DISNEY and getting pricing if you were to add them on to your package, that way you can compare. If you do end up purchasing them early, you can select will-call as your method of pick-up where you'll be able to get them at any Theme Park ticket booth including water parks, at any Guest Relations location including Downtown Disney, or at any Walt Disney World Resort Lobby Concierge. They can then be added to your Key to the World card!

    Please come back and visit us if we can answer any other questions!

    Have a Pixie Dusted vacation!
