    I recieved my magical express luggage tags. We are staying at the art of animation. Our luggage tags say this but above the hotel name it says ak. What do these initials mean. Does it mean that this hotel is in ak area? I thought it was in hllwd std area


    The two letter codes vary by resort, and are really nothing for you to concern yourself with. They are codes used by the group that manages the luggage to know where to group it with other baggage.

    The codes did (and probably still do) correspond to regions in the park. My recent trip to the Wilderness Lodge had tags with MK, for the Magic Kingdom area. But so that you know for sure, the Art of Animation is in what Disney classifies as the ESPN Wide World of Sports area of the property. 

    If I had to guess, they are moving the bags for Art of Animation with those in the Animal Kingdom resort area simply because they have capacity there. Since there are only two resorts in the ESPN area, I would guess they bundle the two areas in together with the Animal Kingdom area. Or they may do it for some other organizational reason. 

    But know that you are about to go to a really wonderful new resort that is in the heart of the fun!

    Have a magical vacation!
