4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We loved everything about this hotel, from the ambience to our bathroom. Everything screamed "disney". Now, if you don't like things to be 'in your face' then maybe this isn't the hotel for you. We are a young couple who love disney, kitsch and a go,go,go atmosphere. All the staff were amazingly polite and seemed to be happy with helping... More

Let's be honest, this is a budget resort, BUT....you get more than a budget resort will give you anywhere else! First and foremost the staff is unparalleled. There is nothing they wont do, or try to do, to help you out. The rooms were very clean (although very worn) and always felt great after getting home. The showers were awesome... More

We stayed at Art of Animation for two years in a row and had a great experience each time! Our little girls were completely enamoured by our room in the Little Mermaid section. The room itself is just average but it's clean and comfortable and what you'd expect for a budget hotel (plus all of the "under the sea" touches... More

The location was perfect for a family wanting visit the Disneyworld parks etc for a number of days. The staff were incredibly helpful and the bus service was fantastic getting to the parks. There was always a line to get home at night, but that is to be expected when you are staying til close. My biggest issue was dining... More

If you want to stay in a mermaid covered motel 6 this is the place for you. We picked this lovely room because our little girl loves the little mermaid. We assumed the room would have been filled with pictures of Ariel. Wrong. Should have checked on here. She's on the shower curtain. The amenities or should I say lack... More

Room size was great and the beds were very comfy. Very clean. It was convenient having the kitchenette and 2 bathrooms. We would definitely stay at... More

We stayed in the Little Mermaid room this time. The room was much cleaner than the 2 moderates we stayed at this week (Caribbean and Riverside), The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. They have a better gift shop than some of the other resorts. There was an issue with our magic bands not working but it was... More

We stayed in the mermaid room. It was just perfect for a family of 3. Clean and cute! It's nothing fancy but just perfect. The pools are nice and fun for the kids. It's a little walk from the mermaid rooms to the food court, but that didn't bother us, it's a nice walk! We enjoyed our stay!
