Overview

Disney's Art of Animation is all about getting behind the scenes, with rooms themed around animated favorites like The Lion King, The Little Mermaid and Finding Nemo, and the cheerful bedspreads and murals can t fail to catch the imagination, however old you are! Learn about the animation process with pencil drawings lining the check-in area, and sketches becoming more detailed as you progress through Animation Hall. There s even an ornate chandelier filled with storyboards. Although classing itself as a value resort, the largest pool on any Disney property can be found at this Orlando hotel, modeled after the setting of Finding Nemo, no less. Free internet access and the Landscape of Flavors food court make things convenient for a family on the go.

Disney hotel ideal for familes

Would recommend Thu, Dec 17, 2015
Perfect setup for families (2 parents + 4 young kids). Great pool, splash pad, etc. Easy access to highways and to the Disney parks. Ample parking (and includes free parking at the Disney parks)

Nice place

Would recommend Wed, Nov 11, 2015
Hotel was clean and most of it modern. The Little Mermaid rooms are just old converted rooms from another hotel. Maybe Pop Century? The Cars and Lion King Suites are newer. We would stay again!

Family Trip to Orlando

Would recommend Tue, Nov 10, 2015
After some initial snafus (I booked 2 rooms and when my family and I arrived they had put us in 2 different buildings I asked for that to be corrected they did the same thing until I spoke to a supervisor to get the two rooms in the same building -- sadly not beside each other) the rest of the stay was great. The staff were very friendly and very apologetic for the room situation. For the value it was a great stay. Because the Art of Animation resort is so large, there was a designated bus to each of the parks (as opposed to other resorts where multiple stops are made) which cut down on some of the travel time.

Fun had by all!

Would recommend Sat, Oct 17, 2015
The hotel was really great for young kids, under the age of 10. There were cute sections of rooms and the family suites were perfect for my family. The kids slept fine in the beds however the room bed was only a queen so that should be upgraded to a king or at least give that option. The pool was great! There was a park, splash pad and pool all in the main area. There was also onsite laundry if need be.

Loved the Nemo family Suite

Would recommend Sun, Oct 11, 2015
All beds in the Nemo family suite were comfortable for adults, including the table Murphy bed and the sofa bed. The room was quiet and worked great for 4 adults. Everyone (from the maids to the front desk to the food servers to the luggage handlers) was incredibly friendly and helpful.

Great for groups!

Would recommend Sat, Oct 10, 2015
Art of Animation is a great choice if you want to stay on property and have a group of 4 adults max (with or without a couple of kids), and need some extra room to spread out. Comfortable extra beds and 2 bathrooms with great pools and a top quality food court make this an excellent choice for a Disney vacation.

Awesome family trip

Would recommend Thu, Oct 8, 2015
We loved the AofA resort, it's like being in the movies. We have stayed here twice and will stay again. It's a little on the expensive side but you truly get the whole Disney experience when you stay here.

Familys First trip

Would recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
This trip was apart of our daughters Christmas present. It was a first time trip for her and my boyfriend, so it was a big deal for us. We stayed in the little mermaid room. The room was very nice, very clean. We were a little disappointed with how far away we were from the main lobby. After walking all day at the parks then the back and forth to the main lobby for food was a little tiresome. But, overall we had a great stay and would be sure to visit again.

The themes at this hotel are great for the children. Not comfortable as an adult. Rooms are noisy. Dining hall service very slow and way too crowded.

The hotel was very nice, and the staff was great! Getting to the parks was very easy with the free shuttle. And it was good to have an eatery on site.
