    Hi we are staying off site can we visit the art of animation hotel? And where can we park? Is there a cost to park?

    Hi Lauren! Welcome back to planDisney. I'm happy to answer your question today!

    In order to park at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you either need to be a Guest at that hotel or have an advanced dining reservation. And since this hotel does not have a table-service restaurant option for which you can make a reservation, you will not be able to park there unless you are staying there. However, if you are staying at another resort hotel on the Disney Skyliner route, or you are having a day at Disney's Hollywood Studios or EPCOT, you are welcome to hop on a Disney Skyliner aerial gondola and visit Disney's Art of Animation Resort!

    While you will not be able to use the amenities of the resort since you are not a resort Guest at this hotel, you can enjoy the Landscape of Flavors, which is their main quick-service dining option as well as their whimsical gift shop, the Ink & Paint Shop. But when I visit, I usually just take in the over-the-top Disney theming at this resort. Each area is themed to either Cars, Finding Nemo, The Lion King, or my favorite, The Little Mermaid. There are so many amazing photo ops around this resort that you can definitely make an afternoon of it. Then, just hop back onto the Disney Skyliner to go back to your original location!

    Lauren, I hope you have a wonderful visit to the Walt Disney World Resort and this unique resort hotel! If you have any other questions, please reach out to me again and I'd be happy to help you.
