    Hello! My family of 5 are coming to WDW, staying at Art of Animation. We'll be there for NYE (also our anniversary!). I've heard that it's quite busy at the theme parks and was wondering if our resort has any special activities going on?

    Greetings, Lisa!

    Welcome to planDisney, friend! You chose a fabulous resort to call your home away from home during your magical stay at Walt Disney World Resort. Disney's Art of Animation Resort is the perfect spot for a family of five. The family suite options offer plenty of sleeping space, two bathrooms, and a kitchenette perfect for storing snacks and essentials. 

    Each resort in the Walt Disney World Resort Collection offers a variety of seasonal activities and offerings during the holidays. When you arrive be sure to stop by the front desk for a recreational guide that will list all of the exciting activities in store for the week. Activities can vary from week to week and may include options like making your own ornament, poolside dance parties, and fun trivia events. There will be no shortage of seasonal fun during your visit. This resort also offers Movies under the Stars, which can be a great way to unwind after a day at the parks. 

    There will also be plenty of holiday festivities happening outside of your resort hotel. You will find delicious holiday treats, dazzling holiday projections on the park icons, and elaborately themed Christmas trees that are sure to impress. The EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays will still be going strong when you arrive and is a great way to enjoy holiday small plates from around the world. And if your family loves sweet treats, be sure to check out the Holiday Cookie Stroll. You will receive a stamp in your Festival Passport for each cookie you try, and there is an exclusive special treat if you receive five stamps!

    I hope your upcoming adventure is merry and magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
