    Hi! If we're not guests of Art of Animation but just wanted to visit, would we be able to pay a fee to get access to the pools? What other activities are open to non-guests who are visiting the resort?

    Hello Jenelle and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel where we're always happy to sprinkle a little additional pixie dust onto your plans to visit the magic of Walt Disney World Resort.
    I'm super happy to share that all Guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort are more than welcome to take a peek at other Resorts by Resort-hopping and for my family it's our tradition to made an Advanced Dining Reservation at a new restaurant in a different Resort location each time we visit.
    You're sure to just love stopping by the fabulously themed and larger than life Disney's Art of Animation Resort where beloved characters from Disney classic movies such as The Little Mermaid, Finding Nemo, Cars and The Lion King magically come to life and also make for some superb photo opportunities. Resort Guests staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort exclusively benefit from the 3 Pools which are truly splashtastic with The Big Blue known as the largest hotel pool on property at Walt Disney World Resort!
    You'll be pleased to know that all Guests visiting Disney's Art of Animation Resort can partake in the complimentary art drawing classes which are usually held on most days in the Resort Lobby area at 11am, 2pm & 5pm.  As timings are always subject to change at Walt Disney World Resort I always highly recommend double checking with Cast Members at Lobby Concierge or directly with the artist at his station.
    Have a great Disney day.
