During a weeks stay with my boyfriend and his family we stayed in a little mermaid room whilst his family were in the beach club. I couldn't fault this hotel for our needs but can understand how others may prefer to spend extra and stay at a more relaxing hotel. The room itself was spacious and clean and although the... More

This hotel was great as far as the cleanliness, the staff was super friendly, the pools were nice and was just a cool place to look at with all of Disney's creative touches. For a family of 4 tho, our only option was a room int he Little Mermaid blg, which was very far away and a very long walk... More

We stayed in the Car suite building 2. The room was incredible. Every bed was comfy, the staff & grounds were even better. Just be prepared to walk. Getting to the bus & pool is a hike. But worth it. The pool was my kid's favorite attraction. The food court was nice but disney expensive. Just a heads up. Publix... More

My son is a huge Cars fan. We had to get the Cars themed suite for our family of 4. This was our second Walt Disney World trip in the last 3 years. Last time we stayed at Animal Kingdom Villas and in general it was a better experience last time. The good about Art of Animation: 1. The Cars... More

We have stayed at this property a total of 3 times. Twice, we stayed in the Little Mermaid room because my kids love that movie. It is a regular motel style unit as the door to the room opens from the balcony walkway outside. You can use an elevator or take the stairs -- parking is very convenient to these... More

This resort is an excellent value! I took my son and his wife & 4 children to Disney World. We stayed at this resort in the Cars Suite. So roomy, we all fit even with baby equipment, swim stuff, 5 suitcases and more! The boys loved the room, and the beds are really comfortable. 3 great pools, so if we... More

Disney's Art of Animation Resort, boasting 1,000 rooms, is huge but lacks person attention. From my experience, it is strictly for families with very young children. I took my three grandchildren and their parents (total of 6) and it was fine for the kids but terrible for anyone over 50. The property is huge and if you end up in... More

We stayed here for 7 nights - it was great! We were in Building #7 in The Little Mermaid section. The walk from the building to the lobby/reception/restaurant tends to get "longer" as the week progresses b/c you're tired from going to all the parks and all the walking. But it's not the end of the world. The food at... More

Good resort, convenient, clean, but the only place where I felt stiffed was the size of the rooms. Not very good bang for your buck when you book big room/ suite, suitable for 6, with two loos(which was good) but only one bed room and one kids study/ work table converting into another bed bumping into you as at the...
