checked in with rebeca and Jordan, both were very nice and welcoming. as an extended family we had two family suites in both lion king and finding nemo. The minute you step in the lobby area you've been transferred to a whole new world. Even us adults were more than impressed.
Finding nemo is the center of the resort adjacent to the main pool, resturant, transportation and lobby. The theme reflections isn't the best in the resort though.
Lion king honestly speaking, is neither in the center nor near other facilities, but the theme is so impressive. And it is certainly quieter.
Both cars and little mermaids are located in the extreme sides of the resort but they have their own medium size pool, parkings and laundry.
The cars theme exterior is really impressive.

The resturant is very easy to use and food is ok with lots of variety.
The resort is running many activities for kids around the main pool most of the day. And their safe guards are very professional and doing an excellent job keeping sharp eye on everyone.
Suites were very clean. (Except for the carpet which was dusty specially in the corners)I loved them. Unfortunately they are somehow tight for a family of 6.
Upon our arrival a welcome note addressed to us was already in the room signed by the manager which was very nice.
All small details were taken care of in the suite for a comfortable family stay. I wish the bathing towels will be a bit bigger though so it can fit us adults. But they. Were soft clean and new. Bathroom amenities were good.
Ive used the main guest laundry and was good and clean too.
Transportation from and to disney parks was great too.
During our check out i would like to give a specific thanks to Sam from luggage sevice who was so kind and helpful.
A magical 3 nights stay and will definitely get back :-)

Stayed: April 2018, travelled with family

Art of Animation is a great choice for the young and the young-at-heart alike. I have a blast just walking around and taking photos with Mater, Ursula, Rafiki… there’s just too many to list! I’m overjoyed that your family had such a fantastic stay with us and appreciate you taking the time to share your review.

It’s wonderful to read that Rebeca and Jordan got your family’s stay off to a magical start, and Sam continued this outstanding service when it came time to return home. We love being able to recognize our Cast Members, and I’ll be sure to share your feedback with their leaders so that we can do just that.

We can’t wait to see you back at Pride Rock, under the Big Blue Sea, or over at Radiator Springs. I love all the choices and look forward to seeing where your family will pick!

We just got home from our first trip to Disney World and our first stay at the Art of Animation Hotel. Honestly, I had pretty low expectations going into our stay, as we opted for a "value" hotel and because it was themed. BUT, I was pleasantly surprised throughout our stay. The hotel is clean and well-kept. They did a great job with the different themes and large character statues throughout the resort. There are several different pools, which makes it easy to swim and cool off, even if you aren't staying in the main building. The main pool is really fun with a splash pad and lots of chairs and tables to sit at. The life gaurds were super nice and also really diligent about keeping an eye on all of the little swimmers. There is a bar close to the main pool and although there's no one to bring you drinks, it's nice to have a pina colada so close. They are constantly doing different activities around the pool area for the kids throughout the day: trivia, hula-hooping contests, music and of course there is the nightly Disney movie under the stars every single night. There is one restaurant choice at the hotel which is a cafeteria type set-up. The food is okay and expensive but I will say that they have a large variety of things to choose from (at any meal) to accomodate everyone's tastes. They also seemed pretty lax on outside food and drinks so it was nice to be able to bring down a bag of our snacks to the pool.
Although we never took advantage of it, the late-night pizza delivery would be so great for those long nights when you just want to stay in the room and have a late-night snack. The shuttle service to the park was so wonderful to have and it was also amazing to be able to take advantage of the magic hours. The magic band also makes it very easy to not have to lug around any extra stuff (i.e. a wallet or a room key) and also makes it easy to make purchases at the parks and at the hotel. So, in a nutshell, the hotel isn't fancy but the kids LOVED it and we loved that we still felt like we got to stay in a nice resort with the nice resort price tag. We would definitely recommend!

To be within the park and enjoy the facilities that Disney World offer you is total different then to come daily. It saving a lot of time and allowing you to spend your stay without wasted time. The service at the resort is very good as well.

Room Tip: use all the options that the packege giving you.

Years ago we stayed at POP Century (which was okay) but Art of Animation was fantastic.
Such a nice place...we stayed in the Nemo Family suite with 2 separate shower bathrooms. A very good sized rooms and living room.

The Nemo pool is large with kids activities in the afternoon.
When you swim underwater you can hear music.

The hotel has buses running at all hours to all 4 parks (every 20 minutes or so)

Take a long walk around the hotel and see the Little Mermaid, Cars, Nemo and Lion King buildings.

We stayed in the Little Mermaid buildings. This is definitely an older hotel and the rooms are small, but it is kept up exceptionally well so the age isn’t an issue. And since we spent all day at the parks the size was not an issue. We were really only there to sleep. The perks of extra magic hours, transportation to/from airport, travel to/from parks, paying with magic bands, etc made it totally worth staying on Disney. The cost of the Little Mermaid rooms was comparable to what we would pay outside of Disney. Definitely a good value for us.

Right here on the ocean floor, such wonderful things surround you! Sebastian was clearly singing about the marvelous décor that envelopes you as you waltz through Art of Animation from sky high Ariel and Triton statues to a replica of the famous Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater.

We are pleased to be able to offer whozits and whatzits galore for your Disney vacation in the form of Extra Magic Hours for some added time at the Parks, Magical Express to make getting to and from our property a snap from the airport and transportation to and from the Parks on our buses so no one has to worry about swimming from Park to Park on your own.

There are still many treasures untold, so we hope you'll come back and be part of our world next time you vacation.
