    Geneva from TX Asked

    I’m staying at AoA, and my friends are staying at a hotel around the area. Are they allowed to come hang out in our hotel room during the day for a break? Are they allowed to ride a Disney bus with us?

    Hi Geneva!  Thank you for bringing another great question to us at planDisney.

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation will be here before you know it!  The holiday season is my favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World.  With all the beautiful decorations, festive holiday music, and yummy holiday treats there certainly is an extra sprinkling of magic throughout the resort.

    Your friends are welcome to accompany you back to your room at Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  All Guests visiting Walt Disney World may use Disney's complimentary resort transportation, whether they are visiting for the day or staying at a Disney Resort Hotel.  (Disney's Magical Express airport transportation is reserved for registered Guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel.)  Taking a break in the middle of the day is a great idea.  Whether you simply relax in your resort room or enjoy a quiet meal outside the parks, everyone will feel refreshed when it is time to head back to all the fun.

    Be sure to check out the Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays during your visit.  Pick up a delicious holiday snack or beverage at one of the many Holiday Kitchens and perhaps nab a few cookies along the Holiday Cookie Stroll, and enjoy a performance of JOYFUL! A Celebration of the Season inside World Showplace or the Voices of Liberty performing holiday carols at America Gardens Theatre.  You'll find your guide to the festival on the home page of the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions as you prepare for your trip.  We are always happy to help.  Have a wonderful vacation!
