This is a really fun themed hotel, but definitely more on the value side and best for families. A definite up grade from the all star and pic century hotel. The pools were cool and the rooms were a lot of fun. Long walks to the bus from the mermaid room. The restaurants were good but extremely busy. Staff extremely... More

Fantastic hotel, loads to see and a great location to reach the parks. 3 brilliant pools and as normal at Disney staff so friendly. Stayed in the lion king rooms and although they can be a bit noisy at times the room was great especially spacious and great having a table! Will definitely return!!

Our visit got off to a terrible start with a three hour plane delay meaning we arrived at 2 in the morning. To top it all off, after a considerable walk to our "little mermaid" room, the door would not open! My long "rest" with my 6 year on the concrete outside while hubby hiked back to reception was improved... More

Pros: Disney's Art of Animation is, first and foremost, a beautiful resort. The walls of the lobby, hallways, and rooms are decorated with a variety of sketches and paintings from famous Disney films. Our check-in was easy, as many cast members stood along the lines to serve families. Our room was lovely, clean, and quiet. We had multiple restful nights.... More

When I booked Disney World for my son's birthday, I had no idea Cars was excluded on property...no attractions, rides, nothing! I almost moved our trip to California before reading about this property. I immediately booked the Cars suite and it exceeded all expectations. The pools and food court always seemed very crowded, even in low season (September), but we... More

We took our daughter for her first trip to Disney to meet all the princesses. Ariel is her favourite so of course we chose a Little Mermaid themed room. She was ecstatic. All the statues around the resort are huge and just like the characters. We had to take photos with every single one. The gift shop is great. Transportation... More

Everyone here is soooo nice! Friendly and helpful everywhere you go. Landscape of Flavors had wonderful food. I would definitely recommend buying the refillable mugs if you're staying a few days, it is a better value! Mousekeeping left us fun shaped towels and birthday cards for two people in my family celebrating their birthdays! It was so much fun to... More
