"Still a Value Resort"
We stayed in a low-end Little Mermaid room... Even with a $50 online discount it cost $150. I thought this resort was supposed to be an upgrade from the other WD Value Resorts. The LK and Nemo and Cars family suites certainly may be, but the LM standard rooms are no different than other standard rooms in the other value resorts AND you are VERY VERY […] far from everything. We also got a "lovely" standard parking lot view....the beds are just full-size in the standard rooms as well (not queen). This resort was very very crowded . Very noisy and lots of kids. They were actually showing Frozen as the "pool movie" the night we were there. Somehow the audio was projecting backwards away from the screen, and picture didn't even fill the screen ... Not very disney-esque at all. The giant sculptures ARE impressive, but not really enough to outweigh the negatives of staying in a Little Mermaid Standard room. Not even a coffee maker!! (Yes there is a small refrigerator) . My advice is to upgrade to a Moderate Resort with more amenities for a few $$ more. It might even be cheaper during some seasons! After one night in this resort we moved to Port Orleans for the remainder of our stay and we were extremely pleased! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great time with excellent service. Would go again very soon.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Could Have Been Better"
This is an older hotel but it has some great pools that the children enjoyed. The transportation to and from the parks was great. My only complaint was the lack of cleanliness. Our room's bathroom was glanced over as we noticed the same dirt day after day. My son also found dried mucous on his newly switched pillow linen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gets the job done"
Based on prices, I thought this hotel would be more like the beach club than the all star. The facilities were clean and adequate but definitely lacked any warmth or uniqueness that I came to expect of Disney as a child (when it used to be Polynesian, contemporary, and tree houses). I was a little embarrassed as I had talked it up to my guests and when […] we walked in the room, the charm of the Disney characters was little more than cardboard cut outs covered in shellac. More disappointed than anything. All that said, rooms were clean and had no major complaints. I guess Disney had to adapt for the masses. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was awesome!!! Had a great time. Very clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Colorful, Magical & Memorable"
Only complaint is that you can hear the guests through the walls due to lack of insulation. Very noisy from all angles!!Genuine Expedia guest review
My kids loved it. The rooms are not very big .They had a lot of fun in the pool.The little mermaid was far from the bus sto, there could be two bus stopsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Little mermaid room"
Love it . However it does take a long time (like an hour) if you are needing anything from housekeeping or if waiting for them to deliver luggage. Food was good and was reasonable for being on Disney property.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I was a child again!"
We are Florida residents and I've stayed at many WDW resort hotels. This is my new favorite. My 17-yr-old daughter and I did a mother-daughter getaway and stayed here. We were like five year olds when we walked around the resort and into our Little Mermaid room. The themeing is spectacular! For the price, and if you want to be on Disney property, this […] hotel is simply amazing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great vacation bad food"
This hotel had great hospitality and cleanliness. My children loved the pools and entertainment. The view from our room and around the property was great. The only thing we did not enjoy was the food or the way the cafeteria was run it was too disorganized and the food was not cooked well. We did not eat there for the rest of our trip it was that bad....but […] overall great time.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The only complaint that I have about the hotel was the beds, they were so uncomfortable, being pregnant I was I'm so much pain just from laying in the bed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"The "value" choice at Disneyworld"
The price of a Disney vacation is high. The cost of staying at a Disney "resort" is high. But apparently this resort is the cheapest of the Disneyworld resorts. That means the bus rides are a little longer, the accommodations may not be as fancy, and the on-resort walking distance can be formidable if you are in a distant building. But the accommodations […] and the staff are both Disney-quality -- and that means high quality. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing, except noise"
The themed rooms were amazing! The resort itself was just awesome, every little detail! Our 3 yr old son loved it! We were in a cars family suite and it was very roomy and nice. The only bad thing was the noise. Our room was at the end of the hall right by an exit door and it was SO LOUD every time someone came through there. It sounded like our room […] door was being slammed shut. I could also bear everything anyone in the hallway was saying. Now, I was sleeping in the murphy bed closest to our door, you couldn't hear it so bad from the bedroom or living area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Would have given it 5 stars except for:"
I would have given this hotel 5 stars, but I was VERY disappointed with the Landscape of Flavors restaurant. I ordered and pre-paid for a birthday cake for my daughter (which is why we were there). On her birthday they failed to arrive, I had to call 3 times to see what the delay was about, when they did finally show they did bring candles but nothing […] to light them with (really?) So waiting for the cake caused us to be late for events we had planned at the Magic Kingdom. I also noticed that even though we got the exact same thing for breakfast all 3 mornings we were there, we were charged different amounts each time. Overall the Hotel was very well maintained and clean. The bed was a bit hard for me but might be great for someone else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice for 1 of Disney less expensive resorts."
Nice property. Lots of fun happening. No coffee in rooms at Disney bugs me. For longer stays, I prefer a suite.suite.Genuine Expedia guest review
For young children, they really get a kick out of the decorations. The beds were all comfortable, not those thin mattresses. Was disappointed in the kitchenette. Called to see what was included, and they said dishes, pots and pans, but arrived to find paper plates, paper bowls and plastic silverware. It worked out okay. Food at the cafeteria was good, […] but overpriced. Take a walk around the facility, there are interesting signs that give some facts about the movies. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A complete Disney experience"
Great hotel if you want to have a complete Disney experience. All the hotel is amazing, with the Different thematic areas, you can feel all the Disney world in the hotel. All the staff is very help full. The amenities included in the hotel wrth it. Starting in your arrival to the Orlando International airport, the Magicsl express drives you to the hotel, […] and you dont have to drive. It is really amazing all you can do with the disney bands, you dont need to carry money inyour pockets if you sre inside Disney world. All the interactivity you have wit My Disney Experiemce is great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel for families & kids!!"
Stayed only for the weekend but the room was clean!! It was large!! and it was ready way before check-in time! The pool was nice and so was the splash area!! The shuttles were great! from airport to parks to downtown - awesome experience!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice, need more food choices. Meals are over-priced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not fancy but we came to Orlando not for the hotel but for the parks. Cute rooms buses to the parks leave every 20 mins.good for first-time. Beds are very hard, pools are nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For a value resort this was great. The property was beautiful and well maintained and the pools were out of this world. The only downfall is that Disney puts the value resorts the furthest from the parks so it makes for a long ride back when exhausted from being in the park all day. With that said, you can't best the value and the only thing the room […] was missing was a microwave. Otherwise it can't be beat. There is nothing like the details that Disney puts into everything!

"Can't wait to return again soon!"
This was our 2nd stay here and it was wonderful. We stayed in the Nemo suite which I highly recommend if you can afford it for a family. With a super comfy pullout couch and murphy bed in the LR/kitchen/Dining area and 2 full bathrooms with a separate master bedroom you can go wrong. As I said, all bedding is very comfortable, nice soft sheets, assortment […] of pillows, lovely bathrooms, 2 flat screen tvs,coffee maker, fridge, microwave and all super clean. Service was excellent regarding housekeeping and at front desk. Food court is Ok for a few quick meals. Bus service goes to all parks was a breeze everytime. This is the way to go for a family. Cars suites very close by but did not even check out Lion King area of property! Great pools for kids too!Watch pricing on this site as it changes and you can get a good deal by keeping an eye on it.

"Great place to feel disney magic"
simple but great... not a fancy hotel, it's a value hotel but clean and fair... and you get the disney "magic" from the start... the pool is very good and being close to the parks (and going there with the bus) is a plus...Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved this hotel. Beautiful characters outside each wing. 3 wonderful pools with lots if activities at the largest pool. Only downside lots of walking to get to the check-in building.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Clean, friendly staff, great location, unique roomsGenuine Expedia guest review
Great place to visit with little ones. We stayed in little mermaid room and it was perfect for us. My only complaint is there was not a microwave. Kids loved the pool and play area. Great arcade for the kids as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fun for kids"
Our children really enjoyed the pools and the characters throughout the resort. Our room was very far from the main pool area, lobby, restaurant, and transportation. We stayed in the Little Mermaid area. The resort should look into providing a little tram for tired guests. The breakfast food in the restaurant was mediocre but their meatball sandwich […] for lunch was much better. Overall, it was a fun experience and we really enjoyed the Cars Land area.

Girls loved the character themed sections of the hotel. We were short on time for checking out the main pool but were able to get a quick swim in at the Little Mermaid pool which was close to our room. A bit of a walk to lobby, food, and buses but not a big deal for us as we don't mind the exercise. It helped that many days we brought strollers so we […] could wheel our sleeping preschoolers back to the room. Buses were frequent, food was quick and easy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best Hotel at Disney"
I have stayed at numerous Hotels at Disney, Even the Grand Floridian, all were less than clean and I debated weather to go back but this was the nicest of all. What a pleasure, whoever is in charge is doing a great job. The room was very nice, the showers were beautiful and all the surrounding property was in great shape.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Family hotel!"
We loved the Art of Animation resort. It was a great place to hang out during the day and rest our heads at night. Our girls loved the Little Mermaid room. It made our stay all that much more special. There was room enough for a pack-n-play and double stroller as well as all our luggage in the room. We enjoyed having a mini fridge as well although we […] did have to continually adjust the temperature on it. The pools are heated which is nice on cooler evenings. The food court on property is good as well. Lots of food options to choose from. We ate there several nights. Transportation to the parks was very efficient. We never had to wait very long which was a big help when traveling with small children. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"First time to Disney"
We enjoyed this hotel. The room was very clean (except for the grape jelly on the ceiling). The staff was helpful and friendly. The art in the complex was up to Disney standards and was not faded by the sun. Access to the Disney Parks and airport was very easy with the bus drivers. The lifeguards at the pool were very attentive.Genuine Expedia guest review

This is a great resort for the kids. Plenty of things for them to do including a game room, movies by the pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice by small"
Overall we had a great stay but the little mermaid rooms are quite small. The walk wasn't as bad as others describe it but it makes refilling your mug a chore instead of a perk. Themes are fun ... Pools were great and Jeff at the bar is quite nice. Would consider staying here again but in a family suite instead. We are two adults and two kids ages […] 5 and 1 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
