    We are planning a first time trip to Disney. If I will stay at Art of Animation Resort, will I be able to access all there is to offer at the resort for free? If I will booked a 5 nights stay at the Resort, will a 4 days Theme park ticket good for my trip

    Hi Josielee, and welcome to planDisney! I am so excited for you to visit the Walt Disney World Resort for the very first time! There is so much magic waiting for you, and Disney's Art of Animation Resort is an excellent Disney Resorts Collection hotel selection to put you right in the middle of that magic! Let's dive into some of the many complimentary perks and amenities this resort has to offer its guests!

    Josielee, staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel comes with so many amazing benefits - one of my own family's top reasons to stay on property includes the complimentary transportation to the theme parks and the Disney Springs area! At Art of Animation, you will have access to both the Walt Disney World bus transportation system and the Disney Skyliner for quick and convenient access to all four theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs! Another one of the benefits we love is the Early Theme Park Entry that is available to each of the theme parks every single day! For Disney Resort Guests, the parks will be open an extra 30 minutes each morning, so you can race to your favorite attractions before the crowds!

    While enjoying time at the resort hotel itself, you will have access to all that it has to offer, including assorted recreational activities like Movies Under the Stars, campfire activities, and three resort pools, including the Big Blue Pool, which is the single largest hotel pool on all of Walt Disney World property! Art of Animation also offers a jogging trail, playgrounds, and an arcade for its guests to enjoy! As you explore the different areas of this resort, you will find theming of some of the most enchanting Disney animated classics; from Lion King's Pride Rock to Nemo's Big Blue World and Ariel's Grotto, you will find many larger-than-life icons that will make you feel part of that world!

    Josielee, a four-day theme park ticket offers you a chance to spend one full day in each of the four parks on property, which I think is an excellent strategy for your first visit! With so much to see and do, I recommend taking some time to decide which attractions, shows, and characters are at the top of your family's wish list! You may also want to look into the complimentary Genie service for help navigating each of the parks. This allows you to input your top choices and provides you with tips and suggestions to make the most of your day! You've truly never had a friend like this!

    I hope this has been helpful as you plan for your trip; please don't hesitate to come back anytime if you have more questions or if we can help again with anything! You are going to have an amazing vacation full of magical memories!

    See you real soon,
