We spent the first four nights of our disney trip here because our kids loved the theming. To be fair, it is a value resort so much of what I didn't love about the hotel was at least half expected. We stayed in a Little Mermaid room and it was definitely cozy to say the least. The beds were a... More

Disney's Art of Animation was great. My kids are not youngsters anymore at 14 and 12 but they still loved the whimsical art and magic. Everything about the resort was great. All the characters and scenery was amazing and the pools were nice. We stayed in the Cars Family Suit which we were upgraded to for free! The room was... More

We have stayed in Disney Resorts before, but this was our first trip to Art of Animation and was terrible disappointed. The office/ food court/ Disney Express bus all on one end of complex and the 10 building using all these are spread in the other direction of these. You walk yourself to death just to get back and forth,... More

Very small suites for the price you are paying. Its a cute concept but expensive for nothing. The shuttles take you to all the parks and even to downtown Disney but buses take for ever and when we stayed the shuttle had broken down so about 100 people were waiting from magic kingdom to get back to the hotel. I... More

We just went to eat dinner and walked thru the grounds and the hotel was amazing! The kids loved it and thought it was awesome! My son is 4 and is in love with the Cars movie and he thought this was the real deal! My daughter loved the little mermaid as well! It was just amazing to see and... More

My husband, son and I stayed 6 nights in a Cars Suite. We could not have been happier with the room. It was very clean. It was large, with a separate bedroom for my husband and I with a full bath, and in the living area was a murphy bed or pullout couch for my son (he chose the latter)... More

We booked the Lion King Suite for one night for a family of four (2 adults and 2 children 13 & 9) because we are DVC members and are use to space. When we arrived at Check-in, our bands were waiting for us, but they had some issues with them (making sure they all worked at AOA). I requested the... More
