    I'm staying at the Art of animation resort which does not have a fitness center. Can I visit another Disney resort to use their gym. Is that even allowed?

    Hi Kenny! Welcome to planDisney.

    My family loved our stay at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. You truly feel like you're walking around inside Disney and Pixar movies - my kids laughed every day as the seagulls from Finding Nemo serenaded us with "mine! mine!" and we loved flipping our fins in the gorgeously themed Big Blue Pool. It's such a fun resort hotel!

    You're right that there is not a fitness center at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Currently, day passes are not available for purchase at the fitness centers located at Disney Resorts Collection hotels, but there is a fantastic jogging trail around Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's Pop Century Resort. It's lovely to run through both resorts and along Hourglass Lake. Every mile is magic when running at the Walt Disney World resort, and I personally enjoy the balance of some magical exercise and Mickey-shaped treats! 

    If a fitness center is a must, I have two ideas. I know some Guests purchase day or weekly passes to off-property fitness center chains; this would be easier if you will have a car. The other option is to switch resort hotels to one that has a fitness center. While none of the value resorts do, you will find a fitness center at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. My family has stayed there several times - it has great food, palm trees, and sandy beaches, and one of the best pools at Walt Disney World Resort.

    I hope this helps you "work out" your options for keeping your fitness routine up during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Please come back and see us here at planDisney if you think of any further questions!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
