    We are staying at re contemporary resort as I’m wanting to take my son to the pool at art of animation. Is that allowed? Which resorts can we go to?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Keela!

    You're going to love your upcoming stay at Disney's Contemporary Resort. It's one of my favorite Resort Hotels because I think it's right in the middle of all of the magic. It's so close to Magic Kingdom Park that you could even walk there if you wanted to! The pedestrian pathway even has its own security checkpoint so you can have your bags checked there and skip the area where all the guests are getting off the buses. Add that proximity to the convenience of staying at a Resort Hotel with a monorail stop, and it really is one of the best places to stay at Walt Disney World Resort.

    I think that the pool is one of the most important parts of choosing where you want to stay. Guests of Walt Disney World Resort Hotels have access to the pools at the Resort Hotel they're staying at, but swimming at the pools at other Resort Hotels is not permitted. A lot of the pool gates can only be unlocked with the MagicBands of guests who are staying there, so you would not be able to gain access to the pool at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. You're certainly welcome to visit if you want to check out the grounds and eat at the incredible Quick-Service restaurant, Landscape of Flavors, but the pool is reserved for guests of that Resort Hotel. The good news is that Disney's Contemporary Resort has a great pool that even has a slide! There are also two awesome water parks that you can visit, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park, so there are plenty of places for you and your son to enjoy a swim together when you're on vacation.

    Have a magical day, Keela!
