    How can I use the pool at AOA before I check in?

    Hello, Sarah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted to help answer your question concerning your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    From your question, it sounds like you will be arriving at Disney's Art of Animation Resort before the 3:00 pm official check-in time.  I am very happy to inform you that this is NOT a problem AT ALL!  When you arrive at the resort, head directly to the front desk to check-in, even if you are early.  NOTE: For faster service, you can also check-in online.  The Cast Member will activate your Disney Theme Park Tickets and set up charging privileges on your MagicBand.  Once you are checked in, you can then store your luggage at Bell Services and enjoy all of the amenities at Disney's Art of Animation Resort until your resort room is ready.  You can swim, eat, shop, or just explore this MAGICAL resort!

    If you have other questions, please let us know!  We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
