    When will the refreshes of the Little Mermaid rooms at AoA be completed?

    Hi, Lisa!  Thanks for being part of our world here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I'm so glad to hEAR that you are planning a stay at one of the Little Mermaid rooms at Disney's Art of Animation Resort!  As you're flippin' your fins around the resort, you will feel as if you are living inside some of your favorite Disney and Pixar movies.  The fun, colorful theming has always made Disney's Art of Animation Resort a favorite among guests, and now with the addition of the Disney Skyliner, transportation to and from this resort hotel is even more convenient.

    Lisa, I just asked a Walt Disney World Resort Cast Member about the refurbishment schedule for Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  I was told that updates have been taking place throughout the resort over the past year.  A beautiful new floor was recently installed in the lobby area, and the rooms throughout the resort are also being updated.  From what I understand, the current room refurbishment project includes updates such as installing new laminate flooring for all of the guest rooms, as well as replacing the full-size beds with larger queen-size beds in the Little Mermaid rooms.

    Unfortunately, the Cast Member who I spoke with was not able to tell me exactly when the updates to the Little Mermaid rooms will be completed.  If you are hoping to stay in a room that has already undergone refurbishment, you could certainly request this.  However, please keep in mind that this is only a request.  While Cast Members do what they can to honor guests' wishes, requests cannot be guaranteed.  If you would like to request a refurbished room, you can make note of this while completing the online check-in process.  You can also call the Help Center phone number for resort hotel reservations to make your request.

    If you have any additional questions as you get ready for your trip, swim on by to visit us again.  Have a magical day!
