We stayed in the Cars Suite and my kids LOVED it. The pool is great and if your kids love the movie Cars they will love it! It was very nice and we loved having two bathrooms. The food court was great and had a large variety of food. It gets very crowded so go early. Elliott at the concierge/front... More

This time we stayed in the standard room for a couple nights. The price was great. The room was as expected. If you can afford it and it is available go for the family suite and if you can get the Nemo suite you will be closest to the cafeteria. It the property is beautiful and the walk is not... More

Dinning here is a joke and some of the staff need training on how to smile and actually make your stay worthwhile and memorable. What ever happened to customer service? You get better service from a mobile taco stand. Rather than play with a pair of tongs separating slices of onion looking like it's the end of the world. The... More

We stayed in a cars themed room at Art of Animation. It was perfect!!! Walking distance to the buses, cafeteria. However it was to cold to swim which we were there, the pool looked amazing. Staff was very nice!

This property is beautiful and the little ones will be delighted with the themes specially around the pools. The family will have fun in this property. The resort is huge and might required some walking (depending on the room block). Restaurant is average and it can get really crowded. For a family of 3 there are no medium rooms, you... More

Stay the hell away! Walking down the hotel corridor last night (past only 10 rooms), I heard 2 rooms throwing up. I was on route to pick up our grandson, while other family members took our 2 year old grand-baby to the ED. We are staying at the Art and Animation and ate at a character lunch at the Crystal...

This is a very cool hotel. The theme execution is perfection plus and my kids adored it. I mean, it's got 3 story Little Mermaid characters, a pool that plays music underwater, and fun little nooks and crannies the kids can explore and explore.

This was my second trip to Orlando & Disneyworld, the first time I've stayed at a Disney hotel, last time we stayed on iDrive. I didn't want to drive out there so staying at a resort hotel was ideal. I would definitely stay at a resort hotel again. Apart from the wonderful theming the courtesy buses are brilliant. Yes sometimes... More

What a cute and fun Disney resort. They have 4 different types of room themes. Nemo, Lion King, Little Mermaid, and Cars. Thry have 3 different pools. So they are not overly crowded. We choose the little mermaid because that's my favorite movie. The rooms are completely decked out and they have figures from the movies all over. Its definitely... More
