    Hi! I'll be staying in the All stars music hotel in September, but I'd like to see the Art of Animation restaurant and courtyards. Can I go into the hotel lobby and see all the decorations if I don't have a room there?

    Hi Maria, 

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  September is a wonderful time to visit Walt Disney World, the fall decorations are lovely, and the crowd levels are significantly lower at this time of year.  I understand why you would like to spend some time at Disney's Art of Animation Resort Maria, My family and I stayed at this resort for our Christmas Vacation last year, and I highly recommend touring the property.  The theming inside and out is absolutely incredible.  Guests are totally immersed in some of Disney's most popular animated movies.  

    Resort "hopping" or touring is something I do every trip.  Guests are welcome to tour public spaces of the Walt Disney World Resorts, shop in any of the stores and dine in any of the restaurants.  I would set aside an afternoon, because there is so much to see at Disney's Art of animation, you will be blown away by all of the attention to detail put into building this resort and making it as close to the original movies as possible. 

    While you will not be able to use Walt Disney World Transportation to get directly from Disney's All Star Music Resort to Disney's Art of Animation Resort, you can however take one of the buses traveling to the resort from any of the Theme Parks or Downtown Disney.  

    Have a great time on your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World Resort Maria.  If you have any other questions, please let me know, I would be happy to help make your vacation even more magical!

    Happy Touring,
