My family and I travelled to Walt Disney World at the end of April, and were very pleased with our accommodations at Art of Animation. There were no negative surprises. We were pleasantly surprised with how helpful everyone was and how beautifully immersive the environment was. The moment you step off the Magical Express, you feel like you are in...

Stayed here for family vacation. Nice resort to stay at for families. If you are looking for quiet do not stay. Very noisy. Sadly I was slightly disappointed with Disney as I have always had great results but this time the room was not the cleanest. Hair in the tub and bathroom. Mucous on the wall. Floors stained. Wobbly small...

We've stayed at Disney resorts before and expected this to be the BEST one! Upon making reservations we were encouraged by the staff to take a room in the Little Mermaid rooms. We were great with that as my 4 year old nieces favorite is the Little Mermaid. BUT we TOLD them that we were traveling with a person who...

You can buy juices, milk, beer, desserts, etc. Service was friendly and reasonably quick at each of...

My family has stayed here twice, and each time we found it very convenient. Disney resorts are expensive, and most don't offer family suites. This room is reasonably priced. It is NOT a "luxury" resort by any means, but it is fairly new and immaculate. We stayed in the Nemo family suite the 1st time, and Lion King the 2nd....

We stayed in Little Mermaid rooms (Building 8). The rooms are small but clean and neat...equivalent to Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express. However, there's not even a coffee maker in the rooms and it is is literally a 0.5 mile walk one-way to the ONLY place in the resort where food and drinks are available, as well as transportation....

We enjoyed our stay here with a nice pool that the kids loved almost as much as the parks. The hotel felt dated, but the family suite we got at Nemo had two separate bathrooms and a bedroom. If you stay here, they shuttle you to and from the airport for free, plus handle your checked bags. Once there you...

This time we stayed in a Cars room (other visits were Lion King and Finding Nemo rooms). The room was great and the location is great to the main pool, transportation, parking and dining, especially from bldg #1 where we stayed. Room was great and pool is awesome. The disappointment was that our room wasn't ready until about 5:30pm and...

Of all the value resorts on Disney World, the Animation Resort is the highest priced and I couldn't really figure out why. The check-in was quite smooth and after a long hike to the room, I found it be a very basic room with minimal amenities but did include a bath tub. The room and the building itself could use...
