"Fun hotel for kids"
Art of Animation Resort is perfect for little ones. Food was good and reasonably priced. My grandkids really enjoyed the different themes throughout the resort, especially my two year old. Disney really should consider placing a couple small water slides in the pool areas, the kids would really enjoy that and I think that would make the Resort - outstanding! […] That was the only thing I felt missing, as most hotels and resorts have them and kids really look forward to water slides. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect hotel for a toddler or preschooler"
I dont have enough nice things to say about this hotel. I've stayed in The Little Mermaid section twice, and both times the room was incredibly clean and comfortable, as was the rest of the resort. The theming is really something to see, and with a 3 year old on the trip, I cannot imagine staying anywhere else. We had a lakeview room which was unbelievably […] quiet (not to mention, it offered a pretty view). This resort comes highly recommended! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Amazing staff !Beautiful grounds, great spots for pictures! Very clean! Everyone was friendly and so many activities to do with the kids. We got to see Disney's fireworks from our room and they even have a movie by the pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We all loved it!!"
This is a great hotel and NO resort fee, but everything a resort has and more. It is worth the money. Our 7 year old and 3 year old were very excited to see all the characters place in different spots around the hotel. We will stay many more times.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My daughter loved the Ariel room and the pool. She would have just stayed at the poolside all day if we did not "force her" to go to Disney World.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We would love to stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is the second year we have stayed at Art of Animation and it continues to excel. Disney perks, great design and a reasonable cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The att phone signal at the car suite is really bad but the resort is really amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotels.com and Disney need to do a better job"
Disney is a unique resort where they need a lot of detailed information. Since hotels.com does not provide Disney with that info, you will be spending a little longer at check in. Disney needs every single name that will be staying in the room because of the arm band is you room key as well as your park tickets and if you put your credit card on the […] band, there is no need to bring a wallet, you just use your wrist band for ALL purchases, Since Hotels.com does not provide this info, Disney will need to input all that info at check in time which slows down the process. Once you get set up, LIFE IS GOOD. Great resort. If you just a room, the mermaid section is fine, but if you are going for the suite, stay in the CARS section. Great theme and you are close enough to the big pool, but you have a small pool right outside your door that is wonderfully themed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay with teens"
Celebrating sweet 16, clean room, pretty gardens, convenient bus svc, healthy options at food court, wrist bands worked great as room keys for the teens. Room was ready early, staff at front desk very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Awesome vacation, loved music under water in nemo pool!!! Resort was very nice, only issue we had was noise from room above us..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was upgraded at no cost to a handicap room to accommodate my sister who is an amputee ! Nice set up - defiantly kid friendly . Will be back .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It's a Disney value resort after all"
You can always plan on Disney to be clean and consistent. There are no table service food outlets on this property. The food court is always a zoo in the morning and managing the crowds and the people gets old after a few days stay. The arcade is fun and clean with great prizes for the kids and plenty of pool options.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It's a typical hotel room with all of the Disney touches which makes it special. With the little amount of time we spent in the room it was perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what I expected"
Being a Disney guru, we were excited to try out the new Art of Animation resort!!! We have stayed at almost every resort and do not recommend this resort for those looking to stay within the intimate magic of it all. This resort lacks the personal touches the others have, the decor is amazing, but overall this resort is almost too big to be magical […] as Disney would have intended. Not worth the rate charged. If you are looking for super kid friendly, big decor, comfty rooms and intimate magic...stay at the all star resorts instead, they are cheaper as well and closer bus rides to the parks!

"Great for big family but no luxury at all"
We had the cars suite, and it was economical in terms of luxury. It was big enough to sleep like 6 adults. This resort is Very crowded and have really poor dining choice. The carpet in the building we were in had a weird, strong smell coming. Not sure if it's the chemical they used to clean the carpet. The reason why we rented this hotel was because […] of the big blue nemo pool, but we didn't even get to use it because it's always so overcrowded with rowdy kids. The staff that checked us in had an attitude and she ruined our disney spirit upon checked in. Other than that time, some of the staff were pleasant. Thank goodness we only stayed there for 2 nights, and had plan to move tom different hotel animal kingdom lodge. The animal kingdom lodge is so worth it. I was very disappointed with this hotel.

My daughter loved the Aerial room. would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed in a standard room which was very small and the food prices were high for the quality. The pools were average at best for the area but the lifeguards seemed committed to their jobs. Definitely felt as though we were in a "tourist trap."Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the parks!"
Hotel location to the parks. Quality of the hotel. Friendliness of all the staff. Second time to stay there this year and look forward to going back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Outstanding service and convenience"
Loved the resort for two nights at the end of our Disney vacation. It was our first stay here, and the pools were some of the best on Disney property. We would be happy to stay again, but would probably upgrade to a larger suite, since our Little Mermaid room was almost too small for a family of four.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for kids!!"
My granddaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Disney gets it right! Checkin and checkout were extremely quick. The big pool was great with activities and contests for kids and adults poolside. The food court had plenty of selections. The room's decor was fabulous-Little Mermaid. We will be back!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Another Disney Resort"
We have stayed at all the Disney Value Resorts. This is the newest and it was obvious. Details are amazing! As always there was great service. An issue popped up with our room at check in and things were fixed immediately and we were given extra fast passes to make up for it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved the room, not the biggest but all we did was sleep in it! Great staff, clean and just a great place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Did not live up to typical Disney expectations"
I was not impressed with this hotel. The tiles were cracked in the lobby, the staff was not your typical Dsiney staff....they were not as helpful or happy as other locations we have stayed at. We did have a good experience with our check in employee - very helpful with fast pass etc. No comforters on beds, 4 very small bath towels, 1 shampoo - very […] cheap. The hotel carpet was peeling up at the transition from tile to carpet, you had to leave the pool area to retreive towels at the front desk. Would not stay at this location in the future.

"Awesome hotel! Great for kids!"
We loved this hotel! My kids loved this hotel! It was perfect for kids. Great service, very accomdating, friendly. AtttttttGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"fantastic family-friendly accomodations!"
this resort is pure disney - all of the details were perfection. we were there for the cars themed section (due to a son who is obsessed) and as someone who has an eye for detail, disney did not disappoint. service was fantastic, pools were nice and food in the main dining area was surprisingly good (and offered healthy alternatives too). this is a […] family resort - if you are wanting a quiet, romantic getaway with a loved one, this is not your best bet. but it delivered for what we were there for, which was for our kids to have a fantastic time!

The girls loved the Ariel room. I personally would pay more to stay with more amenities. The price for what you get is a good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Little mermaid room"
We stayed in the little mermaid room which was right beside the pool. The main building where the food, coffee, and shuttles are located are a pretty far walk for little kids. The room was nice and my daughter loved it. The food was not so good. My daughter didnt even like the Mickey Mouse cupcake she got.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the room was beautiful, clean. Service was wonderful. The shuttle service to all the parks was great. Thanks for the great deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was way below our expectation. We trusted the name of DISNEY but this was one of the cheap motel. The spay pool was closed for maintenance so the kids were very disappointed. The movie under the star was done in very small room due to the weather condition. But they could have done it better. Not enough restaurant for the size of the hotel. […] The food court was always busy with the long lines. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed the variety of foods and price range of the food in the Animation Hall. Wasn't overcrowded so there was plenty of room at the three pool areas. Had fun activities for kids such as pool dance party, trivia games, arcade, and movies by the pool at night. Many foto spots on sight. The little mermaid room was cute but just a tad small. Next time […] will prefer a room by finding nemo or lion king. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for a family trip!"
We had the best time at this hotel! It was New, clean, beautiful and filled with Disney magic! Our 1yo daughter LOVED the pool (the big blue pool, with the "Finding Nemo" characters)! The room was big, clean and gorgeous! Just amazing all around!Genuine Hotels.com 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
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

this place was a lot of fun the kids will love it. clean and everybody was very friendly..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
