    Hi! I’m wondering if it is possible to pay to use the pools/splash pads at Disney’s Animation of Art Resort for the day, if we are not actually staying at the resort? I have a toddler and I think she’d absolutely love the splash pads! Thank you!

    Hey, howdy, hey, Natalie, and welcome to planDisney. One of the best parts about staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is the amenities that come with Disney magic immersion. The feature pool and splash pads are a big part of the enchantment of staying on the property.

    Unfortunately, the pools at each Resort hotel are only intended for Guests of that hotel and there is no additional fee to enjoy the Big Blue Pool or Squirt’s Righteous Reef splash pad at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. I agree she would love this splash pad however, aside from your own pool, there are places in the theme parks where she can have a little fun. They are not all-day events but will add surprise and delight to her day.

    Magic Kingdom Park - Casey's Spash 'N' Soak Station (tons of water), squirting camel near The Magic Carpets of Aladdin (heavy spray)
    EPCOT - Liquid Layer splash pad - near the main entrance to the World Discover area (tons of water)
    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park - inside Pandora the Flaska Reclinata (aka the Bja Tickler) squirts water when rubbed (light spray)
    Disney Springs - Stitch outside World of Disney

    If you decide to have her enjoy these theme park experiences bring an extra change of clothes just in case she is uncomfortable afterward.

    Natalie, I hope this information helps you and your daughter enjoy the enchantment of Walt Disney World Resort this week as you escape the Canadian Maritimes. planDisney is always here to help.
