    1st timers in June ! Staying @ AOA, arriving a day prior to check in, any suggest on where to stay, so we can get an early start at Disney the next AM ? Kids are so EXCITED !! thank you !!

    Hi Denise,

    Since you are staying at the Art of Animation Resort (AOA) and are looking for a less expensive option for one night, I recommend that you stay at Disney's Pop Century resort. From there on the morning that you check into AOA, you can simply walk across the bridge and you'll be at your resort. You can leave your luggage with Bell Services and they will transfer the bags for you. This will also make it really easy for you to pick up your park passes on the morning of your arrival so you can get an early start. Sometimes the "All-Star" Resorts are a bit cheaper than Pop Century, so you'll want to check to see when making your reservation.

    Hope this helps! Please let me know if I can assist you further,
