We do WDW on-property annually and have stayed at Art of Animation before with delight, but won't likely again. The main bath (the one for the kids & grandchildren) has a Kohler brand 66 nozzle shower head with no intensity control. It feels like a hundred water-piks against the skin. The idea of water conservation is important to us too,...

We checked in Friday afternoon, which was fast and great, the lady who checked us in made it very magical for the kids. The rooms were small but cute and suitable for kids, since we planned on being at the pool most of the time. When we went to the largest pool (blue) and when we got there the pool...

This was our first time staying in a Disney resort and I was a little disappointed. We chose this resort because we needed 3 beds and it was one of a very resorts that offered this. Pros: Magic Bands- They are used for food, room key, and park entrance. They send emails several times a week to get you excited...

I loved this place. Being on my own I stayed in The Little Mermaid area as this is the only section that has rooms for singles like me. I didn't mind as I wanted to stay in this section. I had a great view from my room of the lake and could see The Pop Century Resort. The only issue...

We arrived around 11 AM with a taxi. Needed to wait only 5 minutes for check in and our room was already available! We asked for a room (we had booked the Lion King Suite) with a view on Mufasa, but we did not get this. I understand this was a request so no bad points there. We went straight...

This was my 10th trip to WDW, however I usually didn't have an opportunity to stay in the WDW resort. I had previously stayed at the Dolphin and Shades of Green. This time we stayed at the Lion King. In one word: EXCEPTIONAL! Worth every penny! Here are the details: Party: 2 adults, 1 Tween (12.5 years old) Duration: one...

We stayed in the Little Mermaid section of the resort during our visit in May. These are the least expensive rooms that they offer. The Little Mermaid section is quite a hike from the biggest pool and the restaurant. If I were to stay there again I'd pay extra for the upgraded rooms that seem to get better reviews on...

We stayed at the Art of Animation, and had a suite in the Lion King Building. The rooms are decorated so cute! There were 4 of us, my husband and I and my two adult children (over 18). The table bed is a really nice bed, we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the mattress, fine for adults and...

We stayed in the Little Mermaid section during the last week of April. This was our first time at this resort. We loved the outside of the resort. The different sections were themed just perfectly even down to the plants. We enjoyed just walking around the resort looking at everything. The inside of the rooms were a different story. The...

My family of 2 adults & 2 kids, 11 & 15 years old just stayed at the Art of Animation for 6 nights. We stayed in a family suite in The Finding Nemo Block & it met all of our expectations & more. The room easily accommodates a family of 4 with plenty of bedding & space, it has a...
