Throughout your vacation, your family will be surrounded by some of your favorite stories. From the themed family suites and rooms to the spectacular courtyards, this new Walt Disney World Value Resort will immerse families in 4 wonderful "worlds"-for a colorful journey through the story of each film..

Best Place to Stay

This resort was great for the kids. The themed rooms pool areas and hotel grounds were great. We will certainly stay here again. Might not be the best place for honeymooners or someone who is looking for a "fancy" hotel, but as far as kids go this place is great.

Fun, Fun!!

Fun hotel, even for a teenage traveler. The staff was great, excellent food choices, great room. Reservation was for a single in Little Mermaid complex, but was upgraded to Finding Nemo family suite when we checked in. Great surprise! Would loved to have stayed longer!

Awesome Family Vacation

This was the first trip as a family to Disney World. The kids loved the resort so much they didn't want to leave. We stayed in the Finding Nemo family suite and it was much more than we expected. The staff was extremely friendly and made our trip as magical as it could get. Will definitely stay there again!

Great. Upgraded to a suite. Everyone was helpful and very pleasant. Great for our 3 and 5 year old grandsons. They loved the Elephant Graveyard.

Weekend of fun

The room was great for the price, and I don't mean that just because it was cheap it was cheap. The room had great A/C, warm running water, the beds were good for a place away from home, and everything was Disney clean. There are three pools but the best was the bigger one in the center of the resort (stick your head under long enough and there is music playing that you only can hear under there!!!). The food court has amazing quick service food and the bar provides great drinks. Of course the Cast Members were amazing and were very helpful. I think it is now one of my favorite of the value resorts at Walt Disney World.

Fantastic for adults & children

Very nice themed rooms, stayed in the little mermaid standard room and it was very cute and comfy. The only complain in the room was that there was no microwave in the standard rooms. Recommend getting a luggage helper after check in because it's a little way from animation hall to the Little mermaid section... Loved the expressed check out and the free continual shuttles to the 6 disney parks and down town disney.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

The refillable drink cups located in the restaurant, u pay a fee per day (8.99) or per stay it saves in the long run compare to buy several bottles of 20oz soda for $2.50 a piece. Plus u get a reusable disney cup once you get home also

Art of Animation Resort

Best hotel staff in my life. Small family suite but comfortable. Salty swimming pool. Good main restaurant but expensive. Small laundry room. Very clean hotel. If you have a problem with walking then this vacation is not for you. Bring rain coats or you'll be soaked. If your children.are over 10 then they might feel the attractions are for younger children.

Great time

We had a great time. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We stayed in the Little Mermaid section and a lot of people complain about it being such a long walk from Animation Hall, the walk is not bad like people complain about. As you walk through the resort to Little Mermaid the grounds are beautifully decorated and have so many photo ops. After all we were on vacation and not in any hurry!!
