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 large and vary in depth so adults and kids alike can enjoy. At night they show movies on a big screen at the pool. The kids swam and we got snacks from the dining hall to enjoy with the movie. Next year we are going to pay the extra $ and try out the safari theme resort.

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 put into it which mega Disney fans will appreciate! We stayed in The Little Mermaid rooms and the attention to detail made me love every second of being in the room! BTW the selfie lighting in front of the mirror above the table is perfect (you're welcome). I would DEFINITELY recommend staying here. In fact, I just booked another trip to stay here about 20 minutes ago. ENJOY!

We loved it. Every corner of the hotel was wonderfully themed for kids. Food court had good food and employees were wonderful. Only complaint was the heated pools weren't very warm compared to other resorts we've been to.

I stayed here at the art of animation resort on 1/2/17-1/7/17 let me tell you, this resort was nothing like I thought! I've never been to a resort before, but after this trip I will definitely look into more resorts when I go travel! First thing I loved about this place was the POOL! it was huge and sooo cute! My 2 year old loved seeing dory and nemo while she was swimming. I liked that the resort had a cafeteria like resturaunt in it, that way if you're hungry and don't feel like leaving the resort you'll have a variety to choose from. The busses that would take you to and from the airport and to and from the parks were honestly super convenient and the best! The rooms were nice and clean and spacious, the restrooms were also I stayed at the cars section my daughter loved it. If you're looking to take your kids to a resort that will be cost efficiency I would recommend this resort. The kids will be super impressed with all the themes and fixtures and the pool! This was my second time to Disney and I will Forsure come back to this resort when I plan my trip to disney again 🙌🏽

"A Fun Resort!"

A fun, beautifully themed resort! If you're into art, this is an awesome place to see renderings from The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Finding Nemo, and Cars. The pool areas and sculptures make it fun to walk around the campus. They have a gift shop and food court as well. It's one of the best value hotels. However, being a value hotel, you will be with a bunch of families and areas like the food court and pool will be busy and loud. The resort has its own bus route so you don't have to stop at any other resort before going to a park. It's also right around the corner from Hollywood Studios.
