Negatives: rooms are noisy and smell like chlorine, magic bands work 50% of the time when you need to get into your room, absolutely zero cell service in your room, wifi works 30% of the time, they don't change your sheets, they don't remove dirty dishes from your kitchenette, buses are always super full, takes 30 min+ to get to...

The Art of Animation is a very large economy hotel with bus access to the rest of the Disney attractions. On the plus side, the rooms are well maintained and clean. The a/c works well. There are two pools for guests. On the negative side, the size of the property makes traveling from the outer buildings to the registration/concierge/dining location... More

I went with my family, in June to the Art of Animation Resort. I have four kids ages 14 through 3. The scenery was amazing! My three year old son loved the cars room! The only thing I wasn't that impressed with was the dining. We had dinner one night at the Landscape of Flavors, the food was amazing but... More

This was our first visit to Disneyworld. Upon checking into the Art of Animation, we were upgraded from the Little Mermaid room to the Lion King Suite for free. This suite is the way to go. Not too far from the cafe or buses. This resort is really great for families. Linens were always changed and the suite was always... More

We were so excited to stay at the newest Disney resort, and I know it's a value resort, however, when we got there the room was just ok. Our family of four stayed in one of the Little Mermaid standard rooms. It was very small with the two double beds, the open door barely cleared the bed. The pillows were... More

It was VERY clean and new. The rooms size is a bit small with two beds but okay. The main check in building is very nice. The... More

Stayed here in august for 2 weeks with 3 kids, the kids loved looking at all the characters from little mermaid, nemo and lion king while walking around the resort. I would recommend staying in one of the suite rooms as you get loads of space and 2 bathrooms which is handy in the morning. Landscape of flavours was a... More

We books two family suites for a 7 night stay with 12 of us including a toddler and baby. The rooms worked well with careful planning. Each room has a decent size small fridge and a microwave. We ordered groceries delivered from Garden Grocers and were able to have breakfast and snacks or lunch in the room which saves a... More
