    We are planning a 2021 12 day vacation to Disneyworld - one of the group has requested to stay at the Art of Animation resort in the Little mermaid rooms - questions are can we request to have a coffee maker in the room? And do you have to have fast passes

    Hi Todd,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I feel it's never too soon to start planning a Walt Disney World vacation, and while your 12-day stay is a ways off, you can have lots of fun all throughout the planning. Disney's Art of Animation Resort is a wonderfully enjoyable resort for your extended vacation. Room amenities for Walt Disney World Resort hotel rooms are listed on the resort room website, so my first suggestion — because your vacation is a ways off — is to take a look at the current amenities when you're getting ready to make your reservation so you can decide which accommodations make the best fit for your vacation needs. Currently, coffee makers are available for the suites at Disney's Art of Animation Resort but not for the standard rooms, nor are coffee makers currently available for request for standard rooms.

    Your question about FastPass+ — do you have to have FastPasses — is also a great question. The attractions and experiences enabled for FastPass+ also have standby queues. My personal take is that while you don't have to have FastPasses, you are absolutely always going to want to use the FastPass+ service as it's an easy-to-use and easy-to-manage way of enjoying attractions, character experiences, and entertainment. In addition to recommending FastPass+, I always recommend using the My Disney Experience Mobile App for your day-to-day Walt Disney World vacation planning, especially when you're out and about all around the theme parks.

    Todd, I know your vacation is a few years away, but here's wishing you all a most magical stay.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
