    Planning on staying at Port Orleans-Riverside and my sister’s family is staying at Art of Animation in June 2022. Can we park at each other’s resorts to enjoy public access areas? Also, can we park at AoA so the kids can enjoy riding the Skyliner together?

    Hey there, Jessica!

    I am so happy that you are taking a fabulous family vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth! 

    You have picked two amazing resorts to stay at. You can not beat the charming ambiance of Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, and your entire family will absolutely love the easy access to the Disney Skyliner at Disney's Art of Animation Resort

    Jessica, the answer to your question is a little more complicated than you may think. Technically, in order to park at a Walt Disney World Resort, you must have a dining reservation. But since you have a party staying at each resort, I can help you get around this issue. 

    When you arrive at each resort, simply go to the front desk and tell them that you would like to add a "Day Guest" to your room. This will let the security Cast Members know that your family will be coming to see you and they will be let in the gates with no problem. While guests are welcome to use any public amenities, please note that pools are reserved solely for guests of that specific resort. 

    I hope that this answered your question, Jessica!

    See you real soon!
