    I will be a guest at AOA, if we have waterpark option on theme park tickets, do we get to enter water park early 30min like theme parks?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    You are going to love staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort! Simply walking around the resort will make you feel like you have been dropped squarely in the movies, as you drive around with Cars, swim with Nemo and the Little Mermaid, and stalk the savanna with the Lion King.

    Early Theme Park Entry for Disney Resort Hotel Guests only applies to entry into the theme parks, not the water parks. So no, you would not be able to get into the water parks, like Disney's Blizzard Beach and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, earlier than the standard published opening times. 


    But what are you going to do when you are in the water park? If you would like to plus up your water park visit, you might want to consider booking one of the reserved spaces, like the Beachcomber Shack or the Umbrella reservations at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park. Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park has similar options as well. Just call (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529 to make a reservation.

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

    Have a Magical Vacation!
