Fun place to stay

Jun 2022 | MooRowe

Enjoyed our 4 days ar Art of Animation. Really wished there was carpeting in the guest rooms (Lion King Family Suite), loved having 2 bathrooms, lots of walking bring comfortable shoes. Most of the staff very friendly and helpful, MacKenzie at check out was not friendly and almost rude when i asked for a printed copy of my bill for all 4 of my rooms, which was shocking in comparison to everyone else. We had a minor billing error that was fixed very quickly. This is a fun family friendly resort.

The best of the "value" resorts.

Though it's hard to call $270 a night "value" that's Disney these days. We stayed in The Little Mermaid section in two rooms. They're well -themed and pleasant, happy rooms. We had three adults in one, and four adults in the other. So we were not in the suites. Keep in mind, the Little Mermaid wing (3 buildings) is the farthest from the main dinning area and bus stop. So if you don't like to walk, it may be harder. A 7-minute walk for us, but we walk very fast. The room was comfy, good A/C, good shower, and not too tight. We did find it odd that the floor is not carpet, but hard laminate. It's blue to look like the sea, but felt strange not to just use blue carpet instead. Each room had two comfy queen beds. The food court area "Landscape of Flavors" had enough variety for us, but we're not picky eaters. Choices were plenty, though obviously we ate in the parks more than the resort. There is one bus stop, but having the Skyliner serve this resort is WONDERFUL. We rode it to DS and Epcot and loved it. It was nice to be off the buses for two park days. The theme at Art of Animation is great, larger than life and it makes you smile. We were there with our now adult children, but we all loved the neat touches in the rooms, the massive characters outside the buildings and the feel of being in that Disney bubble we all love so much on each trip we take. There is also a "quiet pool" near the Little Mermaid section that we used, so we didn't have to bother with the much more crowded Big Blue Pool near the resort lobby. I'd highly recommend this resort mostly due to the themes, the skyliner, and the proximity to the parks. None of the bus rides ever felt too long.

Kids absolutely loved the statues all around!

This is a perfect place for little kids who still have a great imagination. Mine were running from statue to statue posing with them and acting like they were in the movies. I think even though this is a value resort, Disney didn't slack off on their signature theming and the grounds are just spectacular!
