    Hi. We have booked to stay at Disney Art of Animation Resort May 2024. We are booked into two Little Mermaid rooms in Building 7. My question is. These rooms are probably the furthest from the hotel entrance. Are there any luggage trolleys?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    On a recent trip with some of my planDisney pals, I stayed at Disney's Art of Animation Resort in the Little Mermaid rooms. While yes, they are further away than some of the other buildings from the Art of Animation Hall (the main lobby building of the resort), I did not find them to be so far away that I was troubled by the distance. The walk to both there, and to the Disney Skyliner is about 1/4 mile, or a bit more than 1/3 of a km.  Plus, diving into the sea with Ariel and her friends was a very magical experience! 

    But when you are arriving with your luggage, and a large party as well, every inch matters! Yes, the bell services desk at the Art of Animation resort can loan you a luggage cart to take your bags to and from your room. The bell services desk is located immediately outside and to the right of the hotel's main entrance, as you face the hall when you arrive. 

    BONUS TIP #1
    Make sure you use the Online Check-In feature of your My Disney Experience account before arriving. This will help ensure your account is set up properly for charging, among other things. They will even text you your room number when it is ready!

    BONUS TIP #2
    If you arrive before your rooms are ready, the bell services desk can hold your luggage for you while you enjoy a day at the parks. Even if your adventures include returning to the resort late in the evening, the front desk staff can get you your bags before you head to your home in the magic!

    BONUS TIP #3
    Did you know on your departure day that after you check out of your room in the morning, you can leave your bags at the Bell Services desk, and then head off to breakfast, or even to the parks for that final dose of magic? Just remember to gather them up before heading home. 

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
