    Hi! Will be staying at the AOA "Lion King Family Suite". This is our first trip to WDW. I would like to know if they will be giving Souvenirs for the grand opening? We will be arriving the next day after. What will they do at Grand Opening?

    Hi Aida!
    I'm so excited that you'll be staying at Disney's NEWEST resort, Art of Animation! The rooms look absolutely amazing, and some of the Moms were able to go and visit, and they are raving about the decor and the ambiance!!
    For the Grand Opening of AOA, guests were treated to commemorative lanyards and other AOA paraphernalia. It is unknown if this will be the case for each of the buildings, but usually a smaller scale opening ceremony will be held at the resort. Normally, the guests who are there on opening day receive a commemorative item, but seeing as you'd be arriving on the day after, that may not be the case for your party. Stay tuned to the Disney blog for up to date information on the opening of AOA's buildings.
    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
