    I’m looking at staying at art of imagination for just 1 night in September (my daughter is obsessed with the little mermaid and spotted a Ariel themed room!) we are only staying one night as we own a villa and stay there. Will we get EMH and bands?

    Hello there, Melissa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m so glad you swam by with your question!

    Here’s to shell-abrating good times at Walt Disney World Resort! It sounds like you’re really going to seas the day by staying at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort! My family and I usually try to Resort hotel hop during our trips because we love experiencing all the unique Walt Disney World Resort hotels

    The benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel are amazing, for shore! Even if you stay for one night, you will receive MagicBands during your stay, as well as perks like Extra Magic Hours. I would be sure to check to see if there are any Extra Magic Hours during the evening of your check-in! That way, you can take advantage of the magical hour twice: once the night of check-in and again the next morning! 

    Disney’s Art of Animation is surely going to draw you both in! My family and I have stayed in the Little Mermaid room and the details are fin-tastic! Get ready to take lots of pictures of your daughter, because outside the rooms, she will find a statue of Prince Eric, a massive Ariel with our favorite guppy, Flounder, and more of her favorite characters! The Resort hotel is bound to mermake your daughter’s day! 

    Don’t forget, along with Extra Magic Hours and MagicBands, you are able to make your FastPass+ selections 60 days prior to check-in because you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel! 

    Fishing you a happy vacation, Merlissa! I mean, Melissa!
