    Where is the best place to park to unload our car when arriving at Art of Animation Resort? We are staying in The Little Mermaid standard room. Thank you

    Hey, Chesnie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Wahoo!, your March trip is here in a few days! You are in for a real treat. At Disney’s Art of Animation Resort your family can live in the world of Simba, Lightning McQueen, Ariel and Nemo. The Big Blue Pool is enormous, fun and adorned with a splash pad for the kids. My sons spent all day at the pool including a splash pad battle. The Flippin' Fins pool located in the Little Mermaid section is quite as Sebastian stands guard to keep everyone in line.

    First, check-in at the front desk in Animation Hall (lobby). You will receive your room assignment. There are three Little Mermaid buildings: Buildings 7-9. Building 7 is the furthest away from the parking lot. When you check-in, please ask the Cast Member for the best location to park for your building. If you need close access to your vehicle each day then explain what you need to the Cast Member. They may be able to place you in a room conveniently located to the parking lot.

    If you are using Online Check-In then you will receive your room number via text ahead of time. To see the location, do a web search for "Disney's Art of Animation Resort map" and you will get an understanding of the hotel campus. If you seem too far away, you may always call 407-939-1040 to speak with Cast Member in Disney Resort hotel assistance to explain your situation. I did this before my most recent trip and they were able to move us before we arrived.

    Disney Dad Tip: Make sure to see the topiaries, eat the springtime treats and visit the Festival Center during the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

    Chesnie, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
