Disney's Art of Animation Resort
- What's Included
As a family with a 4 year old traveling to Walt Disney World for the first time, we enjoyed our stay at the Art of Animation resort except for one thing. We stayed in one of the Lion King Family Suites and loved the space, the fact it had 2 bathrooms, a table and small kitchenette with a microwave, mini fridge, and coffee maker. The HUGE drawback for us was the beds. The bed was as hard as a rock in the actual bedroom and the pullout sofa bed was not much better. I would only consider this resort again in the future if the beds were replaced.
Suites were really nice and the housekeeping staff was excellent. NIce pool and the gift shop, and dining area was clean, well supplied and organized. Buses were on time. The room location could have been closer as it was the last room in Nemo building. Even checkin desk and staff were superb and very helpful. Heres the fly:Be very careful about the hotel baggage staff. It took THREE HOURS to get our bags to the room. We even had to leave so we wouldn't miss Chef Mickey reservations. Upon returning from dinner, the bags STILL weren't in our room. After calling 2x and waiting 30 minutes.Nothing! After 3 hours total we marched down to luggage and demanded the bags. Finally after 5 minutes a 'porter' finally grabbed our bags to the room. So if you can bypass luggage and take the bags yourself, so much the better
We stayed in a Cars family suite. The whole hotel is themed so nicely - lots of cute details! It's not the fanciest place, but it's clean enough & the pools are great! The food court can be a zoo, but that's how it is at all of the value resorts. The service was great everywhere. The room was just a little tight with six people in it (mostly because of six having six sets of luggage), but it was definitely manageable. Having two bathrooms was priceless! The refrigerator & microwave were really helpful, also. Overall, it was a great stay. I would give it 4.5 stars, if I could.
From the minute we arrived we loved this hotel. The lLittle Mermaid themed room was fantastic and a massive hit with our daughter. The decor was lovely and we had fantastic room service from a very lovely lady. the 3 themed pools were great and there were lots of activities and fun things to do. The dining facilities were good but could get busy at peak times. There was plenty of meal choices and the staff were mainly very helpful. Our full schedule meant we did not spend too much time at the hotel but we really enjoyed our stay. The Laundry facilities were excellent and reasonably priced.
You know when you don't know for sure how a recommendation is going to pair with your standards, well Art of Animation lived up to its name. It was convenient, friendly, clever decor, but the suites for families was ideal!!! We loved we could all be in the same room and still close to the main building.
