The reason this resort is not above average is the transportation. It was horrible! Waited nearly 45 minutes for busses to and from the resort! The Lion King room was good, it fit our family of 5 nicely. There is no hot tub, which I was not aware. The cafeteria was good, but Disney cafeteria standards. Overall, if you can...

I suppose I understand why it's "value" but really if you stay in the family suites it sure doesn't feel like it. We have stayed in the cars side twice and it's amazing. So much space. Very comfortable. Most spectacular themed inside and out. We feel like we are in the movie every time. Car's lights actually light up at...

Check in was quick and easy. You can even do it online before your stay. Our room was in the Cars Suites, building 3, 3rd floor room 3713. It's the very end unit facing the cozy cone pool. That pool is the "quiet pool". That's nice but the entertainment and the splash pad is all at the "Big Blue Pool"....

We generally stay deluxe, but chose to stay at AoA with our 3 year old post-cruise, for a non-park weekend. First, the hotel theming is absolutely adorable. The Cars section is super fun for kids to check out and have their picture taken on. The Nemo section has those amazingly awesome seagulls (MINE!) that yap on the hour (just a...

This was an excellent on site resort. Lion King suites were excellent for family. Grandparents stayed in Little Mermaid room which was perfect!! Decor of entire resort was terrific. Pool area was excellent. Lots of food choices in the restaurant. Bus transportation to and from the Disney Kingdoms was great. The inclusive food package worked well for our family. Great...

Art of Animation is a great value resort! We did a split stay between AoA & Beach Club. We had a King bed in a Little Mermaid room. LOVED having a King bed. Our room was your standard room. It's small but it was just the 2 of us, so it was adequate. Our room was in the absolute FARTHEST...

This was our second time to stay on site, but we loved the Art of Animation more than The Port Orleans-Riverside, which is a great resort as well. We really enjoyed all the details around the resort. The Lion King Suite was the perfect size for our family of 5. The restaurant at the resort was decently priced and had...

Great resort for families with small children, on a budget. We came in for our November Disney vacation for one night, building 8, long long walk from the front desk to the back portion of the property. Small rooms, nothing fancy but affordable and probably a lot of fun for the little ones, nice pools. Ask for buildings closer to...

This property may be a little farther off beaten path from the other resorts but it is one of the newest and nicest of all the Deluxe Resorts and as family friendly as it gets. We stayed the week after Thanksgiving in the Lion King Suites and the family suite is awesome, decked out in everything Lion King and can...
