I had never stayed on the Disney property since I began going there in 1972 as a teenager. Through a travel agent we reserved the Art of Animation area for two rooms, one for my wife and one for my Adult Son and his family of 4 and sister-in-law. We were assigned two rooms in the little Mermaid area. We...

We stayed in the Finding Nemo family suite with a 4 and 6 year old. They loved the theming in the rooms. We liked the separate bedroom and 2 bathrooms. We were in building 4 which is close to the pool and main building facilities. The furnishings are pretty basic but adequate. The refrigerator was large enough for the groceries...

This is not a "wow" in quality or service.. but its great for families and kids. Huge resort with VERY COOL Disney themed statues all over.. kids will love it. Huge pools. This is a great option if you don't want to pay more money to stay closer to the parks. It's only 15-20 minutes by shuttle to the parks...

Took my granddaughter age 5 to Disney to see the princesses. Her favorite was Ariel so choose the little mermaid room. We were even offered a free upgrade at check in but she refused as she wanted Ariels room. After walking all over The Magic Kingdom and to the busses which (AOA) is the last possible bus. We arrived back...

É uma curta caminhada para a recepção. Uns 300 metros. De qualquer forma a caminhada é agradável. Eu passei a ir até o restaurante/recepção de carro para evitar cansaço das minhas crianças. Nos meses quentes essa caminhada fica exaustiva com os pequenos! Se você for tomar café, e esquecer algo no quarto, sua caminhada matinal será de pouco mais de um quilômetro. É muito tempo que se perde!

The little mermaid section is the absolute furthest away from the main building. Keep that in mind. If you need to run to the restaurant or store to grab something, it's a LONG walk. I thought the Lion King rooms were super quiet, because you are inside a building. The Little Mermaid rooms are all accessed from outer balconies, and if you are on the absolute end you stand the change of not having Wi-Fi. I would opt for a Nemo room.

First of all, it is so adorable that it is well worth it. You walk past the Lion King and in to the section the Little Mermaid. There are huge treasure chests, lamp, fork, etc. There is so much to see, It is ridiculously cute. The parking lot is nearby. The walk is possibly 4 minutes - nothing. It is well worth it. It is not noisy. I do not know why people say that - there probably was a rowdy crowd that week. See Wes at the front desk - he is amazing and will put you in the best room. Plus what do you have to walk with besides your family - they carry all of your luggage to your room from the bus,

Fiquei no hotel em outubro em outubro de 2015. No quarto da pequena sereia, fiquei dois dias e não tinha microondas, apenas frigobar. Contudo, o quarto do carros, em que fiquei mais dois, tinha microondas e frigobar, com uma mini cozinha. Os dois quartos são lindos, mas o do carros (do nemo e do rei leão seguem o mesmo padrão), são bem mais caros, então se quiser economizar, fica na pequena sereia mesmo que vc pode curtir todo hotel, todas piscinas e utilizar o microondas da área comum. Há tb a opção de comprar o microondas no walmart, já vi de 30 dólares, n sei se era bom, talvez seja uma boa se for ficar muitos dias, pois a diferença das diárias é grande e vc n estaria deixando mto dinheiro pra trás ao larga-lo lá. Tenho um canal no youtube: All inclusive 4u, veja o vídeo dos quartos e da parte externa do hotel lá!
