My family loved our stay at the Art of Animation. The check in process was rather slow ( we were with the cast member for over 30 mins. But he was polite and friendly and apologised for the delay with his computer. We were checked into a ground floor Nemo Family suite. It was very close to the pool and cafeteria which was handy. The room itself is a child's dream! Our twin boys loved the decorations and the towels Made into sea creatures, nice touch!
The beds were comfy and housekeeping kept our room spotless.
The food hall area is at times busy, but that is to be expected. The only problem is when you want to order different meals from different counters, by husband ordered Indian for myself and him. This queue went within 5 mins, meanwhile I waited 25 mins to order 2 children's pastas. Meaning our meals were cold by the time we then lined up to pay for the meals.
The pool areas are beautifully presented and clean. My 4.5 yr old boys loved the kids activities run next to the Nemo pool. The girls that are in charge of the kids activities were fantastic with kids.
The buses that take you to the parks are regular, the longest we waited would have been 25 minutes. The only problem is the waiting area at the hotel is in then blazing hot sun!
There is shade behind the queuing area, but not directly over it! Perhaps the hotel should look at shade sails to provide relief from the heat whilst waiting.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
