    How far in advance should I check our party in at the art of animation resort? Our date of arrival is 8/6/21. Thank you!

    Hi, there!

     Michelle, it looks like you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few days. How exciting! There's no place I'd rather be, that's for sure.

     You're going to love experiencing the Disney Resorts Collection. When you stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you stay IN the magic, even after you've left the theme parks! The larger-than-life characters and scenes at Disney's Art of Animation Resort will transport your family right into beloved Disney films. Such fun!

     To answer your question, I recommend completing the Online Check-In process right away. Room assignments are usually made a few days prior to arrival, so you'll want to be sure to submit any room requests before then. Are you traveling with little ones in tow? If so, you may want to consider requesting a ground-floor room. As a mom of three, I've found ground-floor rooms to be super convenient when we're heading back to our room with a sleepy kiddo in the stroller. After a long day in the theme parks, we just push that stroller right into our room and transfer our little one into bed for a night of pixie-dusted dreams!

     Since you'll complete the Online Check-In process ahead of time, you'll receive a text message the day of your arrival. It will have your room assignment information along with a map of Disney's Art of Animation Resort so you can find your room quickly and easily. Be sure to keep an eye out for it!

     Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Michelle. I'm wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
