Not first choice but it was nice

Posted Oct 28, 2014
We wanted the Little Mermaid room but it was all sold out along with 2nd and 3rd choices. So we went with the only choice left, Lion King. It was actually really nice. Clean, well themed, and it was nice to have enough room for everyone. Plus having a separate bedroom for adults was a plus.

Great food choices/large complex

Posted Oct 22, 2014
The food court choices are fabulous. We enjoyed having hot meal choices made right in front of you. Lots of healthy and delicious choices with very fresh ingredients. Quick takes for lunch made it easy for all of our meals, either on the go or sit down. There is something for everyone. Create your own pastas, ethnic meals, omelets made to order, meatless choices and Angus meat hamburgers. Great pastries and Gelato too. Nothing tasted frozen, only fresh. The walk from our room to the food court and Disney transportation was long, over a mile because the complex is so huge. There is only one main center in the middle. We didn't try room service but figured it may take a while because of the distance but we'll let someone else talk about that. Definitely recommend this hotel as a wise choice for families. Packed with lots of options from room types to food choices.

Close to Disney World

Posted Oct 19, 2014
Pros: Cute for small children that like Disney characters
Cons: It is too late as all the rooms are built in the Mermaid complex in which we stayed. A place nearby to get morning coffee.
Rooms are very small. Double beds only. Not enough space for your luggage or space in dresser for your clothes. Vanity too small and not enough space for toiletries. No coffee pot. Only plastic chairs to sit on.

Art of Animation is a great Disney resort!

Posted Oct 18, 2014
Pros: The rooms/suites, the cleanliness, the themes, the pools, the food selection... EVERYTHING!
My husband, our 3-year-old son who loves Disney Cars, and my mom all enjoyed a great stay at Disney's Art of Animation. We stayed in a Cars family suite. We had a split stay with Disney's Coronado Springs due to a business conference I attended at Coronado Springs... and, while we like the Coronado Springs, including its wonderful pool, in all honesty, we loved Art of Animation more for the rooms/suites, the cleanliness, the themes, the pools, the food selection... EVERYTHING! We are looking forward to visiting Art of Animation again... and, who knows? Maybe again and again :-)

Great lower prices hotel for on property Disney lo

Posted Oct 14, 2014
Small rooms but you are really never in your room when at Disney. Very clean, nice pools, large parking lots. There are 10 buildings but still close enough together not to be cumbersome. My sons favorite was the pools and the 2 hidden mickeys in the bathroom!

Disney Art of Animation

Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: Lots to do when not in the parks. I enjoyed walking the trail along the lake in the mornings.
Cons: Only ate in the food court area a few times. We bought our food and ate in the room. To crowded and noisy.
Location: The location was close to all of the Disney parks.
This was the first visit for my 3 year old grandson. He loved it all. He had his picture taken with all the Cars Characters. The staff was always helpful and friendly.
