    Hi Faith We are staying at AOA Feb 16-22 in the Cars suite. What do you suggest for Parks over the weekend? Thank you so much! I learn a lot from this panel

    Great to hear from you again, Michele! 

    Disney's Art of Animation Resort is an excellent choice! Your family will certainly get their kicks in a Cars Suite.

    Based on your travel dates (thank you!), resort location and anticipated crowd levels for each day, here are my park suggestions for the weekend portion of your vacation: 

    Friday, February 19th - Magic Kingdom - This is projected to be the least crowded day at Walt Disney World's flagship theme park during the dates of your visit.

    Saturday, February 20th - Epcot - Also the least crowded day at this whimsical theme park. With the 10K having been long completed by park opening, there will be no traffic delays or interruptions getting from Art of Animation to Epcot. Also, avoid the section between the United Kingdom and Canada Pavilions after 6:30pm, the Pasta in the Park Party for runners is held at 7pm between these two "countries", so there will be extra foot traffic on that side of World Showcase. 

    Sunday, February 21st - Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park - You will not be affected by any road closures or runners still out on World Dr. or Epcot Center Drive heading toward the finish line. The bus route from Art of Animation to Animal Kingdom goes in the opposite direction of anything race related.

    I hope this helps, Michele! I think these suggestions are a solid way for you to still enjoy your vacation during a race weekend. Please let me know if you should have any additional questions, I am here to help.
