There’s a NEW Addition at Disney’s Art of Animation Hotel

There are some great perks to staying at a Disney Hotel.

Art of Animation

You can get early entry to the park by 30 minutes (and this perk was just extended into 2024). If you are staying at a Deluxe Resort, you can get Extended Evening Hours as well! Disney World hotel guests also have the opportunity to purchase special event tickets EARLY (like tickets to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party). There is another perk that we are beginning to see rolling out in hotels across Disney World.

On a recent trip to Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, we saw that the ‘Hey, Disney!’ Alexa Voice Assistant has been added to the room. The Hey, Disney! device is an Amazon Alexa-enabled virtual assistant that lives in your hotel room. The device has a touch screen as well as audio command capabilities and can even understand “custom voice assistance” that you can set up!

Hey Disney!

“Hey, Disney!” will help guests with things they might need during their resort stay. Say, for example, you need to request things like extra towels, blankets, or pillows. You’ll be able to say: “Hey, Disney! Can we have some extra towels?” It’ll send a message to the front desk, and someone will bring up more towels. Need information about the parks you’ll be visiting? You’ll be able to ask Hey, Disney! questions like “What time does EPCOT open,” or get other helpful information to plan throughout your trip.

“Hey Disney” device

Access to “Hey Disney!” is offered as an optional, complimentary feature in Disney Resort hotel rooms. In late November 2022, “Hey Disney!” made its debut in a testing phase and is currently also available in a limited number of rooms at Disney World’s Polynesian Village Resort. Disney has shared that this initial launch is taking place “before expanding in phases to additional Disney Resort hotel rooms across Walt Disney World.” A timeline has not yet been announced for Disneyland Resort hotels (though initially it was slated for 2022).

As more of these roll out into Disney Resorts, we will be sure to report that to you. You might even have one in your room on your next Disney vacation. For more Disney news and updates, be sure to follow us here at DFB.
