I stayed there for four nights with my family in February 2017. My children (6 and 8) loved the Little Mermaid building and the Cars building... The Disney's services ( Food Court, shuttle to the parks, the Magic Band and much more) were excellent ... It was a nice and not too expensive experience!!! Everything worked as we expected!!!

First off, the hotel is pricier than we normally do when we go to Disney. However, we decided to spend a couple nights here just to experience it. The property is fantastic. The rooms are designed gorgeous. They were truly Disney magic. We took the time to walk around the resort to see each of the different "lands." I was...

Our family of 10 loved thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this resort. The Nemo Suites are especially nice, since they are located close to the dining hall, gift shop, shuttle stops, and a fabulous pool. Occasionally we waited about 30 minutes for a bus, but most of the time it wasn't bad. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Grounds were...

There are lots of long reviews on here with all the detail you need so I will only add the bits I didn't see or quash the misinformation. 1. The walk from little mermaid rooms to the restaurant/bus is only 4 min and 20 sec. It's not far at all. 2. The buses are very frequent. We mostly waited less...

We stayed here from Sunday April 8th to Tuesday April 11th. It was my first time at Disney so I have nothing to compare it too. We stayed in the little Mermaid Room. It was myself, mom and 4 year old. I thought the room size was perfect for the 3 of us. I read so many mixed reviews and...

Hotel: We stayed at art of animation during the Disney Marathon weekend. Disney resorts, in general, are always well maintained. Art of Animation has a fun theme with movie themed decorations in the rooms and pools. There are 3 pools. The lobby has character sketches on the walls, which is also quite neat. The resort is somewhat more expensive than...

This is our second time staying at this resort and it never is less than perfect. The staff is friendly and very helpful. It is decorated to perfection and is very family friendly. I would recommend the dinning plan it is well worth the money.

The A of A is a good choice for "budget" family suites. We have 6 in our family and have stayed here twice. This isn't fancy but it is a Disney resort and rooms work for us. The food area in the resort is pretty good. The one downside is that the bus stop at Magic Kingdom is the farthest...
