    We are staying at the ArtofA in April. What are the "pool rules"- Wristbands? IDs? Towels? What else do I need to know? Last time we stayed at Coronado Springs we didn't have time to swim- this time we are making it a priority! :o) Thank you

    Hi Mary!

    You're in for a treat! The Art of Animation is wonderful and the pool is no exception! Did you know there are 3 differently themed pool. The Finding Nemo pool even has music and voices from the movie's characters that can be heard underwater! Sounds like fun to me!

    Typically, at the Value Resorts guests are asked to bring towels from their rooms to the pools. Occasionally, Disney may provide carts of towels right at the pools, but either way you'll be covered. If you need to take your room towels to the pool just let Mousekeeping (Housekeeping) know that you'll need more!

    Be sure to check out the resort's calendar of events that you will receive when checking-in. It will list poolside games and activities that you'll want to fit into your schedule!

    To access the pools, you will need a room key as they are gated. So don't forget it!

    Hope this helps and I hope you have a wonderful time! Please don't hesitate to stop by and ask the Moms Panel another question if there are details we can help with!
