    Hi: Do the rooms at Art of Animation have freezers in them? It doesn't need to be big, Just enough to freeze a few bottles of water to take to the park.

    Heigh-Ho Patrick,

    Walt Disney World can definitely be a little roasty, toasty in the summertime and staying fueled and hydrated is important for a successful and magical day in the Walt Disney World Theme Parks.  Guests take thousands of steps each day and I like to always have water and energy bars on hand when visiting.

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is Home to two different Room Types, the Standard Room and the Family Suites. Disney’s Art of Animation Family Suites have a kitchenette and the mini/mid-size fridge has a small freezer shelf within it. Guest staying in the Standard Room will have access to a mini-fridge only and it does not have a freezer shelf. If you do not have access to a freezer consider bringing a stainless steel insulated water bottle. You can easily fill these up with ice, from the ice-maker at the resort, and store them in your fridge to gain maximum coldness before filling them up with water. I use one every day and the ice lasts throughout the day and keeps everything super cold. 

    It’s good to know besides buying water bottles, most Walt Disney World quick-service restaurants provide free ICE-COLD water to Guests. Simply locate the Cast Member, at the front of the quick-service restaurant, and they will kindly point you where to go.  You can dump the water into your insulated water bottle and be on your way. Another fun fact is Walt Disney World has refill hydration stations randomly placed around the Walt Disney World Resort. Below is a list and while I can not vouch all of them are currently accessible, I can say the majority were on my most recent visit. 

    Magic Kingdom
    Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe- inside (closed during COVID)

    Epcot Experience (former Odyssey building)- by restrooms
    Traveler’s Cafe- by restrooms (near the entrance of World Showcase)
    Disney Skyliner- by restroom (before entering Epcot at International Gateway)

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    Star Wars Galaxy Edge- by restrooms
    Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run- exit of the ride
    Slinky Dog Dash- in the queue line
    Disney Skyliner- by restroom (before entering Disney’s Hollywood Studios)

    Avatar Flight of Passage- in the queue line
    Na’vi River Journey- in the queue line

    I hope this has been helpful Patrick and continue to visit planDisney with any further curiouser and curiouser inquiries you may have. Follow our Instagram (@planDisneypanel) for more Disney Magic and may your upcoming stay be filled with many magical and memorable moments.

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
