    My husband and I are going on a short anniversary trip in April. We will only be there 3 days. We have a room at Little Mermaid, how hard it would be to switch to another resort this close to our trip? Iknow that Mermaid is a long walk from buses and cafe

    Hi, Ami-Beth!

    Without knowing details of your vacation (where you booked, package vs. room only) I am afraid I cannot give you a definite answer.  If you booked directly through Disney, give them a call and see if a switch is possible. (If you booked through a travel agent or third party, you will want to get in contact with them.)

    If a change is possible, I suggest Port Orleans French Quarter. This moderate resort is relatively small, so everything is just a brief walk. I always request buildings 4 or 5 due to their close proximity to just about everything at the resort. You can take a lovely walk along the Sassagoula River to sister resort Riverside. Or relax poolside in the evening as horse drawn carriages pass by. Disney Springs is just a quick boat ride away (although I suggest taking the buses back to your resort as lines for the return trip can be quite long!)

    There is a pool side bar and a lounge in the lobby so you can relax with a beverage in the evening, or head to the bakery for some made to order beignets. You might even enjoy a movie under the stars or roast some marshmallows by the campfire.

    Do not get me wrong, Art of Animation is an amazing resort. But for a quick get-away with your Prince Charming, you might find French Quarter a bit quieter and more relaxing. Wherever you stay, I hope your vacation is magical!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
