Everything in the hotel was great. The character decorations are awesome, if you stay in the little mermaid area prepare to walk... a lot but I did not mind it that way I gt to see most of the hotel which was cool. I would recommend to steer clear of the cafeteria especially the coffee its awful. The only thing I liked of the the 4 meals that i had […] there were the eggs, I dont know what they put on them but its awesome. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
From the cast member that checked us in to the last cast member we saw when leaving, everyone was nice and attentive. I would definitely stay here again. FYI it was our first time staying at a WDW resort.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was great! Kids loved it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect for my lil Cars fan!"
Sons first trip to Disney and a huge Cars fan! He was in heaven! Perfect resort for him. We had fun too! Everything was in great condition, very clean and we loved all the little details that tied in the "Cars" movie. Very cute.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel. The mermaid rooms are far away from the main entrance where you need to go for shuttles, drinks and eating, the Nemo pool... there is a pool for mermaid rooms but not so nice. The room is ok but I don't like that there is no door to the sink. Good value for money as you have free shuttles from the airport and to the parks.next time, I would […] try the Cars rooms, the hôtel is beautiful and close to all amenities.

"fun for six"
We were pleased with our stay. Very minor inconvenience was no Kleenex and the distance to our room. The staff was awesome. The food court was handy. The food was good with a fair price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great vale hotel for Disney. I've stayed at nicer and more comfortable but you cannot beat the price and value and if going to Disney, you won't be spending much time there anyway. I will stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"super cute for traveling with little ones"
Room was cute and kids loved it! We got lucky and got a room by the pool so the kids were happy. Only complaint would be that housekeeping should take into consideration that we were staying as a family and should stock the room with more than one set of toiletries and more than two towels. Room was tiny but served its purposeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Two day trip to WDW. Pillow were uncomfortable. And only two per bed. Toilets flushed very loudly. Heard every time our neighbors flushed. Other than that it was great. Decor was bright and comfortable. Breakfast was quick, good and reasonably priced. Still has that new hotel smell. Staff was great as usual with Disney.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would definitely stay again!"
We booked this hotel for a little family vacation. Me, my wife and our daughter booked the little mermaid standard room and for the three of us it was plenty of room. The room and hotel were clean and there were MANY activities to chose from. They have a playground, three pools, an arcade(very affordable too), gift shop, food court, and so many sites […] to see. Be prepared to walk a ways if you stay in the little mermaid wing though since it's farthest from the main building. The only problem we had was they only give you one towel per person in your room and we used those towels at the pool since they don't provide you towels at the pools. We had to have more delivered everytime we went swimming or showered. But overall a great family hotel!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Animation fans of any age will love this resort"
We really love the design of this hotel. We stayed in a Little Mermaid room, which was adorable. It's fun to walk through the different "neighborhoods", and the cutest one is Lion King. Good grab-and-go food choices at the hotel. The biggest plus of any Disney hotel: It is nice to have bus transportation, especially when taking advantage of the late-night […] extra Magic hours. (Only available to Disney resort guests.) And the Magic Band technology is setting the industry standard. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Love this hotel"
I love this hotel. We have stayed here before and it's just as awesome the second time. The kids loved the characters, the pools, the play area. All the little details are just perfect. The room is clean, the beds are comfy and all the friendly hotel staff just add and extra touch. The shuttles are awesome and run pretty much on time. A perfect place […] to stay on disney property without breaking the bank. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Disney's Art of Animation Resort"
We stayed in a standard room in the Little Mermaid section. The room was very clean, but on the small side with no extras. We were happy to have a mini-fridge, but there was not even a coffee pot in the room. Unfortunately, this section of the hotel is very far from the main area. So it was a long walk, 5-10 minutes every time we needed to go to the […] dining area, concierge, or catch a bus to the Disney parks. That was kind of tough with young children. The suites are much more centrally located, but of course they are double the price. My sister's family stayed in one of the Cars suites and they were very happy. Plenty of space with a separate bedroom and two bathrooms and a kitchen. My daughter who is almost 3 years old loved seeing all the characters from The Little Mermaid - they are huge and guard each building. She was crying on the plane home because she wanted to go back to stay in our "Ariel room." Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Grrat trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time loved the themed room. The only thing was w paid a lot of money for a dinner at the resort and it wasn't very good. I think for the price of the room a complimentary breakfast and drinks should be included.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good value but not designe for business travellers"
Good! It is clearly a place designed for vacationers and not business travellers!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I took my children in a much needed vacation. My grandaughter was floored when she saw our Little Nemo room. The family suite was a little smaller then I hoped it would be. For 5 adults and 1 child we felt kind of tight. The property was amazing !!!! And we were able to take some great pictures of my grand daughter with the disney statue's scattered […] threw out the resort. House keeping was wonderful when they were needed and it was extremely helpful that the resort had our flight tickets printed up for us and sent to our room . The only thing that i was disappointed in was, my grand daughter came down with a fever. The front desk said we could purchase a themometer at the store. The store didnt have any so they told us to take the bus to the next hotel. When my husband went to the bus area they said they couldnt take him he would have to walk. I just felt like this amazing disney resort should have had medical supplies for emergencys like that because of the amount of little children that stay at the resort.

Awesome experienceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Staffs are generally kind. But luggage staff took wrong baggage. Room was clean, comfortable and fancy.But be careful, there were no tooth brushes. Buses which take you to amusement parks is convenient but crowded at 21-22 o'clock.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Art of Animation"
Our 2nd stay at Art of Animation. We're FL passholders, go to Disney quite a bit & stayed at several different Disney hotels. Bottom line-Art of Animation is on par with the All Star hotels. Nice, but shop for rates & only stay there if it's priced similar to the All Star & Pop Century hotels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect hotel for Disney fans"
Great place to stay. Shuttle from airport to hotel. Cafeteria open til midnight. Airport services on premises are an added bonus, with some airlines, can check in your luggage at the hotel, and they will be at your final destination.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME. KIDS WILL TRUELY ENJOY.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Cute hotel - nothing too spectacular, but perfect if you're only spending time at the hotel to sleep. We stayed in the Lion King suite and were comfortable with 6 adults. But again, we spent very little time at the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful stay. First time we stayed in this Disney hotel and is was great. Kid friendly!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Family Hotel Ever!!"
This trip to florida was our 1st real family vacation. Disney being the main part of the trip, we let our 2 children pick a Disney hotel to stay in while we did the Disney part of our trip. Of course they picked Art of Animation. I am so glad they did( as we the parents were def leaning towards that one as well!) because it was awsome from the min we […] walked in! My husband & I referred to this place as Las Vegas for kids! The staff was incredibly curtious, most friendly people ever at a hotel. The rooms were super clean, bright & cheery. The whole compound was incredible!! You don't even need to leave the resort for anything. There's a large cafeteria with all sorts off food to please any tastes, store & the most incredible arcade I've ever seen! Not to mention the pools! There's things for children (adults also)of all ages to do. We are already planning for next year & we are DEF planning a longer stay with them! The only thing is because we did the Disney parks during our stay, we didn't have as much time as we would like to stay & play at the hotel. So either book a longer stay or plan Disney with planty of time to spend at the hotel itself to play!!! WE LOVED IT!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a wonderful hotel! We stayed in the Cars Family Suite (2 adults and 2 toddlers). The room was really comfortable in terms of size. It is one of the newer hotels, so everything was pretty spotless. The hotel is divided by theme (Cars, Lion King, Little Mermaid and Nemo). Each area recreates the movie! The Cars area recreates Radiator Springs, […] including life-size character vehicles! If you have a little Cars fan, he will surely go crazy here. The service was exceptional. We had a situation on our departure day in which our baby got sick and we needed transportation to a nearby doctor, and the staff was really helpful in getting us everything we needed and letting us stay in the room for a late check out. The only cons I would include would be related to the linens, towels and bed not being of such good quality/comfortable, there being no cel reception in the room (although the free Wi-fi made up for that), and there being little options for quality food on site. However, please don't take these as deal breakers. We loved this hotel and would definitely be staying here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean but a bit like a dormitory. The little Mermaid room was neat and the grounds were neat. However, you could hear toilets flushing all night. Walls were thin. The restaurant was good but a crowded frenzy. People were like animals running around with trays knocking into you. Not enough organization. The room was really clean except whatever was stuck […] to the wall behind the bathroom door. I would go to the moderate resorts for the money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome place! Will definitely stay again!"
We have stayed at The Dolphin, Buena Vista Palace, Buena Vista Suites, Caribe Royal & Animal Kingdom. Art of Animation was by far our greatest stay at Disney yet. We loved it!!! Hope to stay there again next year!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
