When you get in trouble and you don’t know right from wrong
Give a little whistle! Give a little whistle! – Jiminy Cricket

Q. Hi, I love your website and all the valuable information you offer. We are planning a 2013 family trip to Disney’s Pop Century and was wondering if Disney has opened up the bridge that goes between Pop Century and the new Art of Animation resort. During our last couple of trips we saw the progress being made at the new hotel and cannot wait to see the finished product. Of course that will be so much easier if we have bridge access over Hour Glass Lake.   (Submitted by Blandine D.)

A. Hi Blandine!

I have wonderful news for you!  The Generation Gap Bridge is indeed open connecting Disney’s Pop Century to the new Disney’s Art of Animation Resort!  I would most certainly suggest to make the trip over to visit the new area because it is simply spectacular.

The new wings have been done exceptionally well and it is fun to explore what this new resort has to offer. (I think my favorite may be the Cars section.  It is themed exactly like Radiator Springs and to me, is as close as we’re gonna get to Carsland on the East Coast!  Make sure to take your photo next to your favorite character!)

As a note, do keep in mind that you will not be able to pool hop to this resort, even though it is just a hop, skip, and a jump away.  However, I would strongly suggest dining at the Landscape of Flavors Food Court.  They have such wonderful options that are very different than what you can get over at Everything Pop Food Court. I would also suggest checking out the store, which has a lot of great themed merchandise specific to the resort.

Overall, Disney has done a fabulous job with the Art of Animation Resort.  I can’t wait until I can make a stop over there again.

Happy exploring!
