I have stayed here twice. Once in a Little Mermaid room with my husband & daughter in 2013 and Dec 2014 in a lion king suite with my husband, daughter, mom, and sister. The suites are a great use of space. The rooms are decorated cute but definitely not fancy/high end. This is fine with me. They are very lean...

We loved staying at this hotel. It was nice and clean. The lines for the transportation were not long and there were plenty of buses running ( unlike the other Disney value resorts). The food chooses were a bit pricey but they were tasty. There were some really good choices, besides the typical chicken nuggets and hamburgers. The staff was...

I stayed here with my daughters, my granddaughter and my daughter's inlaws. The inlaws and my daughters each had their own suite, I stayed in a 'Little Mermaid' single room. Prior to this trip, I had not stayed at a Disney hotel. I camped once at the Disney campground many years ago. Magical, but still camping . There was so...

My family (a group of 10) selected Art of Animation because it was one of the newest Disney resorts and we knew that the kids would like the themes. We stayed in 3 side-by-side Little Mermaid rooms, and after a week of being there, I don't think we would return. Let's start with the pros: The rooms are very clean,...

Stayed here with three adults and two children in a Cars family suite. WELL worth the money for the suite--plenty of room. LOVED having two full baths!! The kitchenette area came in VERY handy and my kids LOVED how the table turned into a bed--which they fought about non-stop (ended up taking turns in that!!). My husband and I used...

We stayed in a cars suite and LOVED it! We have never had a cleaner hotel room anywhere. Everyone from start to finish was super helpful and exceptionally nice! It was much too cold to use the pools but we hope to go back when we can use them. The food court and gift shop were awesome! The theming was...

The rooms are just ok. Don't expect too much. For a family of 4 the family suite is perfect, but for any more people you'd be better off somewhere else. However, whatever the rooms lacks the food court and swimming pool make up for. They have vegetarian options which is nice. You'll get better food here than in any of...

My son and I stayed at the Art of Animation for 5 days (we're leaving today). The resort smelled very nice and was clean upon arrival. We checked in around 10:30 am and our room was not ready which was ok. The CM was very helpful and gave us new magic bands since I packed them (our bags hadn't arrived)....

We were in Florida primarily to visit family but had a few days in Orlando before flying back home. We decided we would do one day/ 2 nights at Disney in a totally laid-back way because our son is only 6 months old and I have been to the parks many times. We knew we wouldn't be able to stand...
