    Our arrival flight arrives early in the day and the departing flight is later on, while we wait to check in and or depart for the airport after checkout are we able to use the pool? Looking at the Art of Animation Resort.

    Hi, there!

     Nate, I'm so happy to hear you're beginning to plan a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. How exciting! It's the very best kind if you ask me. 

     I always, always try to arrange for an early arrival and a late departure. What's not to love about a few more hours tacked onto your Disney vacation? Whether you choose to stay at Disney's Art of Animation Resort or another Disney Resort hotel, you are most welcome to use your hotel's pool before check-in and/or after check-out. Isn't that great? Traveling to and from Pennsylvania is enough adventure for my family, so we never visit the theme parks on our arrival and departure days. We use whatever extra time we have on those travel days to enjoy some pool time at our Disney Resort hotel! I suggest keeping your swim gear easily accessible in your luggage. I try to make sure that everyone in my family has their swimsuit and sunscreen in their backpack that they use as their carry-on item. That way, we can get ourselves to the pool as soon as we arrive! Don't worry about packing towels - those are provided at all Disney Resort hotel pools.

     You have so many incredible options to choose from in the Disney Resorts Collection. Can't decide? Book more than one Disney Resort hotel for your upcoming vacation! It's a great way to experience the different amenities, features, and themes of Disney Resort hotels throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. My family booked our first "split-stay" on a bit of a whim, but now we always begin our Disney vacation at one Disney Resort hotel and end at another. When it's time to move from one to the other, Bell Services transfers our luggage for us. Talk about convenience!

     Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Nate. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
