    How can I get a room upgrade at AOA?

    Hi, Elizabeth!

    Disney's Art of Animation is the newest Value Resort on property. It boasts amazing Family Suites and the single largest pool at Disney! You will not want to miss the Landscape of Flavors food court with its vast variety of foods.

    There are 2 room types at this resort. Standard Rooms (2 double beds, sleeps up to 4 guests) or the Family Suites (1 bedroom, 2 bath suites that sleep up to 6 guests).  All Standard Rooms are located in the Little Mermaid section of this resort. Family Suite themes include Cars, Lion King, or Finding Nemo.

    Rarely, if ever will guests be upgraded from a Standard Room to a Family Suite. This is a very popular resort, and often booked to capacity. That said, you are welcome to inquire about an upgrade at check-in. If rooms are available, the cast member will let you know of additional charges to make that change.

    Your best bet is to book the exact room type you want. If you book a Family Suite, make sure to book the theme you desire. If you choose a Standard Room, feel free to make requests such as a first floor room or corner room. Changes are not always possible at check-in, so plan accordingly during the reservation process.

    Enjoy your stay at Disney's Art of Animation. If time allows, take a stroll across the Generation Gap Bridge to check out the groovy Pop Century Resort. It is always fun to explore other resorts for future vacations!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
