    Are there any maps yet of the Art of Animation Resort? Is there any video of what the pools look like at the AOAR? I was told there is a shuttle from the mermaid theme part ot the resort to the main lobby to cut down on distance, is this true?

    Hello Judey!

    Can you believe Disney's Art of Animation Resort is almost ready?!  I am getting SO excited, and it looks like you are as well!  I was just asking someone last week about the progress Walt Disney World was making on the Grand Opening!  I just KNOW it's going to be truly MAGICAL!

    As of right now, there are not any official Disney's Art of Animation maps available at this time.  The Cast Member told me the resort map is still a work in progress, but he assured me Walt Disney World is getting really close!

    There are still not any videos available of the "The Big Blue Pool" next to Animation Hall.  I have seen a few pictures on different unofficial Walt Disney World websites, and the pool area looks incredible!!!

    I also asked him about the shuttle service from The Little Mermaid buildings to Animation Hall.  The Cast Member said he has not heard anything like that, so I could not confirm this information. 

    If you have other questions, please let me know!  All I know is that your family is going to have an awesome time!!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
