Good time

We had a delayed flight, so didn't arrive at our resort until 3 am. I called ahead to let them know we'd be super late and to make sure they had the crib in the room for our 16 month old. They didn't. It took forever after getting there to get it. The next day we asked for linens to be changed on 2 of the beds due to kid's accidents. We were absent from out room all day, yet it apparently wasn't enough time to replace linens or make beds. We were annoyed by the 1st 2 days, so contacted management and they comped our 1st night for us and apologized. They sent someone with the new linens right away as well. This was a clean resort and room. Our kids (13, 3, 16 months) all had a great time. Food is very pricey but was excellent.

Best of the Value Resorts

This was the last of the Value resorts we have tried and by far it is the best. We only did one night but will be back in the future. The rooms were well decorated and themed and the setup in the lobby and food court was a bit better organized than some of the other value resorts.

Perfect 1st Trip!

We all know there is no shortage of options when it comes to disney. The hardest option for me was the hotel but AOA did not disappoint. With 2 toddler boys we decided to go with the Cars Suite. I knew for their first trip I wanted a resort that really kicked it up on the theming aspects and AOA really did that. The lobby had beautiful Disney drawings and each area of the resort was beautiful. I was truly blown away by the theming in the Cars section. It took us an hour just to get to our room because we had to stop for pictures at every car and photo op. We easily spent a good couple hours just exploring the resort- a must if you are staying here! Check in, our room and all the amenities were top notch and we had zero complaints about our stay. Spacious room and comfortable beds. Nice kitchenette area, easy walk to the lobby. Buses were quick but expect a wait in the morning. The food was good and with good selections. Again busy at peak times but we never thought it was bad. A+++++++++ sums up our stay. It was a perfect week at Disney and we will definitely be back at AOA!

Loved our stay at art of animation. we stayed in the little mermaid room and my daughter was in love. room itself was small, but had all we needed. we enjoyed walking around the property. the food court had good choices, we enjoyed the gelato.we were even able to get a cupcake to celebrate our daughters birthday.

Loved by our 3 year old

We wanted the Cars suite but they were sold out and we only got the Little Mermaid room through our Jetblue package. It was fine but quite a trek away from the parking lot. Lots of walking but we didn't mind.The theme is evident throughout the resort. Our 3 year old was beyond happy about the little mermaid, lion guard and especially the Cars characters. The pools were great....he loved the big blue and really enjoyed (the less crowded) pool closer to the Mermaid room where we stayed. The restaurant had a wide variety of options but again, was a bit of walk away from where our room was. It was close and convenient to drive to all the resorts and the wristband enable easy access. We would stay here again but try to get the cars room for my son!
