If arriving at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort by car and you checked in online you must enter the building by the courtyard side first.  Once you unlock your resort room with your magic band then your band will allow you to unlock the building doors from the parking lot side.  We wasted a lot of frustrating time because we couldn’t get into the building from the parking lot and thought our bands were not working.

Disney’s Value resorts (Disney’s All-Star Movies, Disney’s All-Star Music, Disney’s All-Star Sports, Disney’s Pop Century, and Disney’s Art of Animation Resorts) are great! The money we save by staying at these resorts helps to pay for the airfare and park passes.  Since all we do is shower and sleep and we spend all the other time in the parks, it makes sense to stay for less while getting the same amenities.

A trip to Disney can be overwhelming for small children. Each day that we are in Disney, I prepare a small gift for  my grandchildren from a Disney character. Along with the gift is a personalized letter telling them just what they will be doing THAT day in the parks. (Submitted by Annette F.)

Bringing different size zip lock bags to Walt Disney World is a great idea!  You can use them to store your camera during water rides, wet ponchos after the rain or even left over snacks from the dining plan. (Submitted by Nathalie J.)

My Magical Tip is for Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, my family’s favorite resort.  Be sure to rent a golf-cart!  Not only do they save you tons of time, but its really fun to explore the Fort via golf cart, especially during holiday time when the RVs are decorated.   (Submitted by Natalie F.)

I always purchase magic towels for all the children in my party before our Disney trip and pack them in zipper closed plastic bags.  Once we arrive, we place the magic towel in water to see which character is on the towel.  Once damp we place back in zipper bag and we have a refreshing way to wash our face and hands.
