Great theming, huge food court, good value

This is the nicest of the value resorts and highly recommended for its great amenities. The food court has a number of hot stations making it east for everyone to find something. The pool is the largest on property and has a lot to do. The theming is extensive, a lot more so than the All Stars, which is very nice. We stayed in the Little Mermaid section, standard double room, and it was a little tight. I’m sure the suite setups are nicer.

We stayed here for a week in the Little Mermaid rooms. The room was perfect for our family of 3. The theme was very cute. People have mentioned that it is a bit of a walk to the transportation and food court, however, with all the walking we did, a 5 minute walk to the transportation was nothing, even at the end of a busy day. It's really not inconvenient at all and there is a pool right outside the rooms as well. The grounds are immaculate and the food court had a huge variety of options. The staff was great, including the front desk staff. There was always someone around to help you. The arcade was a fun addition as well. Would highly recommend this place!

Definitely Would Stay Again!

My mom and I stayed here for the first time last week and would absolutely come back again!As soon as we stepped into our Little Mermaid room we fell in love with everything! The room was so cute, and there wasn't a single thing we didn't like about the room in general. *Beds and pillows are extremely comfortable!*Rooms are nice and clean. (Mousekeeping were super friendly!)*I will point out the walls are a little thin so we did hear our neighbors at times, but we were barely in our room a majority of the time so it didn't effect us. *Rooms don't have microwaves or fridges, so you may have to request those.*ONE IMPORTANT THING:I noticed before I booked the Little Mermaid room that several reviews were talking about how far a walk the Little Mermaid area is from the main building where dining/front desks/etc is located. While TLM area is the farthest from the main building, the walk to and from is extremely fast! It took us under five minutes going to the main building, and going back to our room. Please don't think you're going to be walking twenty miles, you won't! :)*Buses arrive every 20 minutes.*We arrived around 9:00 or 9:30 am and front desk had a room all set up and ready for us, which was fantastic!*Food at Landscape of Flavors was great! They are also open until midnight in case you want a late night snack.Overall, We had a wonderful stay and experience at Art of Animation, and would definitely stay again!

Imagine This": Its Basically a Motel and your Room is 1/4 mile away from Front Desk and your Key May Not Work.

Room was Clean, Beds Comfortable, Kinda Pricey for what it is, Staff was nice and Professional. But some of the Front Desk staff probably needed some Training.Just be careful and make sure that they ensure that all your Magic Bands are keyed correctly. If you have a car drive to the park yourself or take a Minnie Van. In retrospect we of should of stayed at POP Century it was cheaper for the same type of Room as Little Mermaid Room, plus the front Desk had a Clue. Trust Me I have Stayed over 3500 nights in Hotels around the Country and I wont be at Art of Animation Again.Good Luck

Just Average

Its just an average hotel. There is construction going on in the lake, but not at night. However, someone at 5 am fired up the crane located outside our hotel and then someone yelled at him and it stopped. Not really sure what that was all about. Average room sizeBreakfast food was decentWine was just okayBeer was coldFootball game was on (Sunday and Monday night)Good size Disney storeNice sized arcadeIt is a good walk to the little mermaid room though. Would stay here again, but there are other options I'm going to try next year.
