    Hello, we are staying at art of animation in November and were wondering where the closest gym would be on-site? My partner wants to use a gym so one that’s within easy reach of art of animation would be great.

    Welcome to planDisney, Caitlin!

    With its storybook landscapes – including Finding Nemo, Cars, The Lion King, and The Little Mermaid – Disney's Art of Animation Resort is one of the best Disney-themed resorts on property. My family and I are hoping to stay at this resort on our next visit. There are some whimsical pools to enjoy, including the largest one in any Disney Resort. Not only that, but Landscape of Flavors is arguably one of the best quick-service restaurants in any Disney Resort too. Possibly my favorite feature of this hotel is its convenient access to Disney Skyliner. This is my preferred way to travel to my next adventure. I'm sure you and your partner are going to have a wonderful time!

    I'm always amazed by the amount of walking I do at Walt Disney World. My step count is always super impressive at the end of each fun-filled day. You can't visit The Most Magical Place on Earth without getting a healthy amount of exercise.

    Unfortunately, since Disney's Art of Animation Resort is a Value Resort hotel, there is no fitness center located at this resort. Your partner might be interested to know that there's a lovely jogging trail that runs along Hourglass Lake by the hotel. There are obviously also plenty of pools at the resort to enjoy some swimming. However, if having a fitness center is a must, then you could consider switching to a Moderate or Deluxe resort. I recently stayed at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and they have a nice fitness center, along with really picturesque jogging trails. If changing hotels isn't an option, your partner could also purchase a pass to an off-property gym. However, they'd probably want to have access to a rental car for this to work. 

    I hope that's helpful, Caitlin. Thanks for stopping by planDisney.
