    If I am staying at the art of animation but spending the day at Magic Kingdom, can I eat at the contemporary hotel?

    Hi Morgan,

    Disney's Art of Animation Resort is a vibrant and immersive experience, celebrating beloved Disney and Pixar films through its theming and design. Did you know that it's one of the newest resorts at Walt Disney World, opening its doors in 2012? Staying at this Disney Resorts Collection hotel allows you access to the Disney Skyliner transportation system. These aerial gondolas are ready to whisk you away to Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT.

    When it comes to getting from Art of Animation to Magic Kingdom Park, the most convenient option is the resort transportation provided by Disney—specifically, their bus service. It ensures a seamless journey, allowing you to focus on the excitement of the day ahead.

    Magic Kingdom Park is overflowing with that Disney magic. With iconic attractions like Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and those beautiful fireworks from Happily Ever After over Cinderella Castle. Plus, TRON Lightcycle / Run—is a thrilling coaster experience that delights adrenaline-seekers! This attraction is available by using the Virtual Queue so be sure to check out how to join the queue if you haven’t already!

    Now, about dining at Disney's Contemporary Resort, it depends on what you're looking for. While guests not staying at the resort can indeed make dining reservations at popular spots like Chef Mickey's, California Grill, and Steakhouse 71, the quick-service option, Contempo Cafe, is primarily intended for those staying at Disney’s Contemporary Resort or Bay Lake Tower. 

    I hope that you have an amazing time!
