Disney's Art of Animation Resort

Family friendly Disney animation hotel

Drawing inspiration from four classic Disney animated films: The Lion King, The Little Mermaid and Disney Pixar's Finding Nemo and Cars, this fun resort is sure to be a hit with the whole family. Trace each movie's theme, from the playful courtyards to the festive room interiors. The resort features over one thousand family suites, specially designed to accomodate up to six guests, as well as standard guestrooms. Just outside your colourful acommodations, you'll find imaginative amenities, three sparkling swimming pools and four playful courtyards - one for each film - to complete your resort experience. Kids (and not so young kids) will love the themed environment, which is decked out with oversized characters, including a 35 foot King Triton.

Thank you Edwege (from Starlight Cafe) so kind!


I would like to thank Edwege (her name tag stated she was from Haiti) and I may not have the spelling correct. This nice young lady brought my salad and coffee to the counter and she realized that the coffee was not hot and she said I want to get you another cup as this one is kind of cold! I thanked her as I appreciated her attention to detail!!!!! She cared and she didn't even know that I am a coffee person. I love coffee and drink it wherever I go. It is kind of like a comfort drink for me. Thank you for hiring such a nice young lady who really cares about the customer!

First time on Disney Property

Warner Robins, Georgia

Overall it could have been nicer. This was my first time ever staying in a Disney resort and I guess I just expected more. You're paying for the convenience and character themes. The staff was attentive. The lobby had an arcade, gift shop and cafeteria. Food was expensive but I expected that from Disney. It was open late which was very nice after a long day out. The room was Finding Nemo themed and was adorable. Our bathroom door had a pocket door and was off its track. That made closing and opening it difficult. The beds were not overly comfortable but, they seemed newer and in good condition. I enjoyed our stay but it's not that much different from a regular hotel. The buses running to and from the different Disney locations was extremely convenient. And I really enjoyed the magic bands. Way easier than a key card.
