This resort offered everything you need for large families. The rooms had everything you needed. The restaurants accommodated massive numbers of people and there were ample choices. My only disappointment was the cleanliness. The couch was quite stained and my socks got pretty dirty wakingbin the carpet. I did not complain because we were gone most of the time.

We were there with our son and his family and the rooms were excellent! The kids enjoyed the pool! But most of all the decorations of the resort inside and out and were a big hit for all the age groups of our family!

We stayed at a Lion King suite (main bedroom, living area (w sleeper bed), kitchenette and dining area (w pull-down bed), and two full bathrooms). The room was very clean and quiet, and a very short walk to a nice pool, restaurant and bus transport area. Basically every thing you would expect at a Disney property. Even though this is...

Hotel was clean and easy to get around.. 3 pools for kids. Bus loading station easy to access. Large gift shop on site. My only complaint was that the reviews for the food court did not live up to it's hype. We picked this hotel for the fact that it had the best food court at Disney. Don't know about...

This was our first visit to the Art Of Animation Resort. We had two rooms for six days. Our stay was in the Little Mermaid rooms and the decor was adorable!! We loved the pool and the large figures surrounding the resort! The rooms are a little small and the downside was the beds were only a full size. We...

We stayed here for our Honeymoon in September 2016. The hotel is split into different sections, Cars, Nemo, Lion King and Little Mermaid. These are all spaced out and live within their own themes with larger than life figures of the characters from the films These were amazing!! So much detail has gone into creating these worlds for guests to...

I love Disney resorts. They are immaculately clean. I always feel like we are safe and my children love the bright colors and seeing thier favorite movie characters come to life extra large! The price is very reasonable for the very nice accommodations. If you want quality at a great price this resort is an excellent choice. The pools are...

Ever since they opened Art of Animation I have literally been stalking pictures of it and obsessing over it's beauty. Finally in February of 2016 I was able to stay there. When our Magical Express bus turned into the resort I had actual tears (and yes I am an adult). Everything about this resort is perfect. So much detail was...
