    We are coming for my son's first visit in October! We're staying at the All Star Music Resort. We'd like to visit the Art of Animation to see the characters from "Cars." What areas of the AOA are non-guests allowed to visit? Thanks

    Hi Michelle,

    Checking out all the Walt Disney World resorts is one of my favorite activities. Your son will love seeing Radiator Springs re-created in the Cars section of the Art of Animation resort.

    Even if you aren't staying at Art of Animation, you are welcome to walk around all of the grounds, visit the shop, food court and arcade. The only restriction is that the pools are reserved for guests of the resort only.

    However, you son will be able to see and pose for pictures with statues of all the Cars stars, including Mater, Lightning McQueen, Flo, Fillmore and, my personal favorite, Luigi. I'm guessing it will be a highlight of your son's vacation.

    Make sure you allow time to walk through the Finding Nemo, Little Mermaid and Lion King areas as well. And don't hesitate to visit the Moms Panel again if we can help with any other questions as you plan your visit.

    Enjoy your time with your family!
