    I have a reservation in Disney's Art of the animation for 5 people for 8 nights. I'd like to know what is included in that reservation. For example: foods, transportation to and from the parks, transportarion to and from airport?

    Hi Miguel! Welcome to planDisney. I'm excited to answer your question today!

    Disney's Art of Animation Resort is such a wonderful place to stay. The theming of this resort immerses you in the world of animation. From the moment you walk into the lobby, you just know this is someplace special. Did you know that the Big Blue Pool at this resort, themed to Finding Nemo, is the largest feature pool at the Walt Disney World Resort? And while I'm partial to The Little Mermaid-themed rooms and areas, this resort is a great option for families looking for more space as it is mostly made up of family suites themed to different animated classics!

    Disney's Art of Animation Resort has many amenities for you to enjoy. While food and transportation to and from the airport are not included in your stay, you will have access to two different forms of transportation to and from the theme parks and Disney Springs. The Walt Disney World Bus Service will transport you to each of these destinations, but what sets this resort apart from others is that it has access to the Disney Skyliner. This aerial gondola system will whisk you to and from Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. It's so convenient and I consider it a ride in and of itself!

    In addition to those great transportation options, everyone on your hotel reservation has access to the various pools. In addition to the Big Blue Pool where they will often have family-friendly activities each day (weather permitting), you also have access to the Flippin' Fins Pool, which is themed to The Little Mermaid, and the Cozy Cone Pool, which is themed to the Cars movies. You can also join in on the Campfire activities, Movies Under the Stars, the Righteous Reef playground, and the Pixel Play Arcade (you will need to purchase a Game Card to play games at the arcade). Please note that some of these activities will only take place if the weather cooperates!

    But one of the biggest benefits of staying at this resort is that just like all of the Disney Resorts Collection Hotels, you get access to Early Theme Park Entry. This means that you can enter the parks 30 minutes before other Guests, allowing you more time in the parks to get more done with lower crowds! Now that's an awesome benefit!

    Miguel, you're going to love your time at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Please reach out again in the future if you have any other questions as your trip gets closer.

    Fantasy and reality often overlap,
