We have stayed at every tier of Disney hotel. We wanted to try this one since the themed decor looked so great. It was fun but given the price I'd stay elsewhere next time. Also, it was a very long walk from our building to get anywhere, including the bus stops.

I think young children will like the decoration inside and out. There are lots of statues of characters on the grounds and the character details in the room were nice. The rooms are small. Two DOUBLE (not queen) beds in our room. It was just my son and I, so that was fine, but it would be a problem if...

We stayed here six nights during our Disney trip and absolutely loved it!! Great room size for the family suites and having two bathrooms in our room was amazing. The resort is good sized but not too big (we also stayed at Port Orleans one night and it is HUGE). Easy to get around this resort and good pool sizes....

We had a good time at the hotel, but we can't say that we will ever be back here again. We chose to stay here since we were taking our daughter for her first time to Disney for her 4 year anniversary and she loves the Little Mermaid. It was also a plus for us to be able to stay...

This was my second stay at this resort. On our previous trip we stayed in a loin king themed room which was great. This time we opted for cars. The kids loved seeing the life sized cars outside the hotel. One of the 3 Pools are cars themed as well. Large rooms! All staff encountered were friendly and helpful. Wonderful...

Stayed here for our daughter's b-day in the standard Little Mermaid room. Some info about this room: it is small, farthest away from the main hall, bring your own pillow if possible, because their pillows are not the best, does have mini fridge, no microwave, but there is a microwave in the dinning hall, the wifi and cell signal bars...

It is good for disney parks visiting, but beware the queues. Disney itself is a "MAGICAL QUEUING" experience. We got the Mermaid rooms, kind of dark and small to 4 people, besides it is far from the main building. The safe deposit is vertical, a crap. The food is a bad experience, like a huge school canteen. The pros are...

I was here right after this resort opened and it is so well done. If you've stayed at Pop Century or the All Stars Resorts and want to experience something new, try Art Of Animation and you won't be disappointed. They are also great at creating food for those with dietary restrictions. They do not create Mikey Waffles here but...
