Loved everything about this hotel, from check-in to room service to transportation for all Disney events. The room was clean and great decorations. The suite was great, kids pull down bed was amazing with decorations of Mater and Cars theme. Café was ok, little pricey at times depending on what you got, but service always with a smile.

Rooms were very clean. We stayed in nemo room. It was so close to everything. Food was very good, although a little loud in cafeteria but no big deal really. Staff was so friendly and helpful. Buses came quickly. We had a really good time at AOA. I recommend for any family with kids. Pools were great. Big shower in the bedroom bathroom, lots of space for your things. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for a family suit. It's worth it.

We stayed here as part of a 11-day Disney vacation and we were very pleased. Room was comfortable and clean, and the food available was great. We had the dining plan so cost was not really a factor as we had certain meal allotments daily.
The housekeeping staff was great with providing us with all the extra towels we needed and were conscious of our timing so that we always had a clean room to go back to after our morning/early afternoon at the pool.
We had the second last room of the last Little Mermaid building so it's far away from the main building, but with all the junk food we were eating the walk was much needed! The only inconvenience with the distance is if you forget something in your room.
The one negative thing about the hotel was the availability of shuttle buses back to the hotel from the parks, especially at night. It's a big resort and I think they need to dedicate more buses to it. Other than that, I miss it and wish I could go back!

We just checked out of this resort today after a 5 day stay. I chose this one bc of the Cars suite. It was my son's first visit & 4th birthday. I feel like a lot people on here are nitpicking & find any little thing to complain about. We loved almost everything about this resort! My only complaint is that my phone service didn't work in the suite for some reason, but thankfully the resort's wifi worked great. Also, Lightning McQueen was under construction. My son was so disappointed not to have a picture with his favorite character. Aside from that, everything else was great! The buses take you back & forth to every park and/or downtown Disney. They run every 15 minutes which is great. The food court has many options. Arcade was fun on our "rest" day. Cast members were very friendly. There's a luggage service. Suite was great size for 2 adults, 1 child. 2 bathrooms was a plus since I take longer than the boys to get ready. All the statues (Lion King, Nemo, Little Mermaid, Cars) were awesome! It was a hot week in March with chilly nights. The pool was heated though so we still got to enjoy it. Overall it was an almost perfect stay!

This place is new and wonderful. We stayed in the Little Mermaid rooms which are the most cost effective on the resort. The bank of rooms is a 5-7 minute walk from the hotel lobby, but well worth it. The room itself was clean and well kept. The resort is modern and beautiful. It is decorated with large Disney characters everywhere and it makes for a truly "magical" experience for the little ones. The pool is outstanding, clean and large with a zero depth entry for the little ones. The buses to and from the parks run consistently and we never had to wait longer than 10 minutes. The food area is clean and well kept and the food is very good. I would definately stay here again...before my little Princess grows up. Great experience and well worth the money!

We stayed in the Little Mermaid side first and it was a typical hotel room. No real upgrades but it wasn't expected for the price I was laying. Also, stayed a night in a Car suite. Definitely more space. Good use of table and sofa as beds... Has a micro, frig, etc. Perfect for families who are staying longer and want to stay on property.

Stayed here with Husband,3 kids (11,13,14) and Grandma. 9 nights in total. The little mermaid rooms suited our budget and turns out cheaper to get two little mermaid rooms than one Lion King Suite. The rooms were joined so we had two bathrooms at our disposal. We spent every day out and about so the rooms were just used for sleeping. The rooms were lovely and clean and the bathroom was in immaculate condition. It was winter during our stay so the pools were only used by the kids on one night. The resort facilities are fantastic and the pools have extremely attentive pool supervisors. Very impressed! The laundry facilities are conveniently located within each pool complex so you can still relax and enjoy some family time while the chores are getting done.
Yes, there is a walk to the mermaid rooms but Disney is all about walking. Isnt it? The walk is very pleasant as you meander through a lovely jungle "Lion King" setting with interesting landscaping etc.
The Games room was a hit with our kids and $5 each kept them occupied long enough for my husband and I to enjoy some time alone!!
We did not eat at the cafeteria style eatery. We purchased breakfast cereal and milk from a local supermarket and We decided to spend the money we saved by staying at The Art of animation resort on trying the many different restaurants in downtown Disney, The Boardwalk and one night ate at the Beautiful restaurant at the Disney Animal kingdom resort.
We all had a great time at the DAAR. I would thoroughly recommend it for those traveling with kids on a moderate budget.

Room Tip: Dont be put off by the distance to the little mermaid rooms. Enjoy the walk and think of the money y...
