"Cute hotel, beds not so comfy"
Booked the little mermaid room and they upgraded us to the cars suite which was a nice surprise. The hotel has 3 pools, they are very nice, main pool is large and cute play area for kids. The hotel itself is very nice. Had lunch inside and it was good and had drinks at the pool bar. The room was cute. The major downfall is the bed was not comfy. I was a full and feels like a cheap pull out mattress. Lots of room if you have the family and two full size bathrooms are nice. If they would put a nice queen bed in the bedroom it would be a great hotel.

"Colorful and Close to Disney Resort"
The resort was awesome. Colorful lobby and even characters showed up in the lobby. At times there is an animator off the lobby showing you how to draw. Enjoyed it very much. Loved the MagicBands

"Disney Hotel Fun Too"
We loved our stay and our kids loved all the disney hotels and their characters for them to see. The pools were very entertaining too. One of the great benefits of staying here was all the free parking into all of the parks. It was easier for us to drive to each of them then taking their buses (cause of kids and stroller) this saved us time and money!!! We would definitely do the Disney hotel(s) again!!! Everyone was great and helpful...Thank You!!

"Magical visit"
We enjoyed another wonderful stay at a Disney property. Don't forget to listen for the underwater music in the big blue pool! plenty of towels, tasty options at the hotel restaurant (my daughter had Indian food and I had a caprese sandwich for lunch. Beer/wine available and mixed drinks at the pool bar. The hotel staff was most helpful with all our questions, and we had a personalized animated cell drawn to remember this visit.

"Adorable.....but our feet hurt!"
We stayed at The Art of Animation Resort for 4 nights. It is an adorable resort and very Disneyesk as you would expect. Our only complaint is that our room was really far from the bus stops/main building. After a long day at the park it was difficult to have to make the long trek back to our room. And it was on the third floor! I would suggest to parents with "walking" kids (not strollers) to pay a little more for a preferred room.

The hotel was great but my reservation was under Donna as my last name Garvey as my first name. This was very confusing to the staff and very hard to fix in there system. I don't think it was ever fixed and I even got a rist band with Garvey, Donna, John and not Cynthia. This was my sister's birthday celebration.(Cynthia)

"Mesmerizing Experience"
My niece & I love the little mermaid and is the main reason I chose this hotel. This hotel has an amazing part dedicated to the Little Mermaid and we were mesmerized with the amazing mermaid character decor. The room was also beautifully decorated with this decor and every time we came back to our room after a long day at one of the parks the housekeeper would take it upon herself to add a tiny touch by laying my niece's Ariel blanket across the bed to add a cute touch which made my niece smile every time. The hotel staff were very welcoming and always helpful. The food is very yummy too. I highly recommend this hotel for your magical experience.

"Love Art of Animation - wish there were more food"
I love this resort. If you do stay be sure to take a day or two break from the parks to enjoy the features of the resort, the cool statues (giant) the three pools, the nice lake between here and POP Century. I have stayed here twice and both times were great. The only negatives is that the food can become redundant (there is no restaurant just a 'cafeteria' style) but the indian and quick service food is good and solid. There aren't any delivery services for outside food which can be a problem if you get back past midnight (food closes then), and the rooms are adequate but super cute. Note if you book Little Mermaid its a bit of a walk to the main building, but that's the price you pay for the cheaper rooms here.

"Another Disney Vacation"
This was not our first stay at Disney Resort. Customer service at check in, food court and housekeeping could have been much better.Housekeeping in building 7 was not the best....Our room walls were dirty and towels were limited. When we arrived,our 6 year old son expected a towel on our bed shaped like mickey mouse.However he was disappointed. It took 40 minutes for us to get chicken parmesean at the food court. They must have mixed up our order.This hotel is not worth the money. We probably would not stay at this disney resort again.

"beyond pleased"
I took my fiance and future daughter in law (6 years old). Neither had been to Disney before so it was quite a special trip. I was nervous because it was one of Disney's lower end price wise hotels. we were absolutely pleased. The customer service was impecable. They addressed my 6 year old as "princess" everywhere she went and it made her whole world. Every employee goes out of their way, offers to take pictures, everyone makes sure you are 100% happy. We had the little mermaid standard room and it was PERFECT. Nothing extravogant but SOOOO cutely decorated and very clean. the 6 year old thought she had died and gone to heaven. She thought the hotel was the actual disney world for a whole day. Awesome experience and such a fun place for kids.

"overall good experience"
I was expecting a hotel but the Little Mermaid section was all motel-type rooms. Each room had wonderful Little Mermaid-themed furniture and decor, which we really liked, and the bathroom was incredibly spacious. The bottle of shampoo with Mickey ears was really cute. We loved all the details in the decor, and we loved the giant movie-themed characters in the resort itself, but we were just surprised that it was a motel-type setting. The other sections, like Finding Nemo, Lion King, and Cars, were more hotel-like.

"A memorable time!!"
The whole stay was fantastic! When we checked in, they upgraded us to a Cars theme family suite. Suite was professionally decorated out with Cars style! Pool outside is in shape of Sally's Cozy Cone Motel. Cars characters are all there around the different buildings of this Cars section of the hotel. My 3-yo son was over the moon! Big Hero 6 Baymax and Hiro showed up in the lobby which we loved! The hotel is obviously one of the newer resorts. The main pool is huge and has underwater speakers. The pool bar is nearby. And similar to the other resort hotels, there are nightly movies under the stars and very good food at the cafe. A great help is the laundry facilities available for those more than a couple days. Buses outside take you to different destinations in and around Disney. A memorable time!!

When we checked in our magic bands were supposed to be connected. After we lugged all of our bags to the room they magic band would not work so we had to go back to guest services. The room itself was great! The food in the food court was not good and the staff were extremely unfriendly and usually to busy talking to coworkers to help guests, and when a guest walked up to the. Punter they finished their conversation before acknowledging the guests. I felt like such a bother when asking for my order.

"Great hotel for families"
Nice room and grounds. Very well designed for kids and adults alike. The only complaint i'd have and it's really to be expected with any kids hotel... there really is no sleeping in any kids hotels. They're constantly running up and down the halls screaming and grabbing wrong door handles. The staff was very polite and the transportation to and from the parks and major areas is such a plus.

"just okay"
to be clear, this is just a really nice motel & not a hotel. your kids will like it, cool stuff to see. the walk to get anything is at least 5 minutes for an adult and 10 or more if you have kids. Keep this in mind when you want coffee first thing in morning. becomes like 20 minute chore. big pool is nice but again, can be very far walk. i recommend spend the extra $100/night at stay at Swan and Dolphin.

"Worth the stay"
We stayed @ the Little Mermaid room. This was not a preferred room so it was a long walk, but what we wanted it since we are fans. I wish the beds were a bit softer but I was so tired after a long day in the parks I slept through the night. The rooms also weren't very sound proof, I assumed for a new hotel they would have addressed that better. Overall worth the price as all we needed was a bed & shower cause most our time was spent in the parks. Very cute decor

"DISAPPOINTED!!!!"
LET ME START WITH SAYING I LOVE ALL THINGS DISNEY!!! THAT IS WHY I WAS DISAPOINTED WITH THIS HOTEL. IT IS A CHEAP DAYS INN STYLE HOTEL WITH MAKE-UP. MY CHILDREN WERE DYING TO GO SO WE SPLURGED AND WENT JUST ONE NIGHT. IT WAS $198.00 FOR ONE NIGHT. EVEN MY CHILDREN AGREE NOT WORTH IT. THE FOOD COURT IS OPEN TILL MIDNIGHT WHICH WAS AWESOME BUT THE FOOD WAS RIDICULOUSLY PRICED AND DISGUSTING. AS MY KIDS SAID WORST THAN CAFETERIA FOOD. THEY GIVE YOU TO CRAZY SMALL PILLOWS AND THE SHAMPOO DOES NOT WASH YOUR HAIR(NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU PUT IN). THE POOLS WERE OK. PRETTY BUT NOTHING EXCITING. DEFINATELY WILL NOT RETURN EVER!!. OUT OF THE KIDS HOTELS WITH ACTIVITIES MUCH RATHER GO TO NICKELODEON.
