Nice Space but roaches
The amount of space you get is nice, butttt.. it has roaches 🪳 for the amount we paid per night, since it was during spring break was about $700 a night for the Cars Suite that’s just crazy to have to worry about bringing home roaches that sneak into our luggage. We switched hotels after one night.
Dark and small
Stayed here for 3 nights and it was just okay. The check in staff was great but the room was quite small, dark and it seemed it could use good deep cleaning. At check in we were informed housekeeping was only every other day, did we want it? We said yes but the housekeeping only involved a drop off of new towels. While in the shower it was discovered there was no more body wash (pump style bottles are used) so I needed to get out and get the bar of soap at the sink. The grounds and pool area were great, employees were very friendly, the bus service to the MK was quite convenient and the skyliner stop at the resort was fun.
Amazing experience at Art of Animation
We had such an Amazing stay at Art of Animation! Everything was perfect! We stayed in a family suite that had an amazing layout and was so nice to have 2 bathrooms available. We were close to the main restaurant, pool, and transportation. The pool was gorgeous, and the food at the restaurant was very good and very quick. Also, the sky tram to Epcot and Hollywood was incredibly convenient and you never waited more than 5 minutes. The busses to Magic Kingdom were super convenient too and we never waited more than 10 minutes for the bus at the resort or park. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful too. I cannot say enough about the Extremely Wonderful experience we had. Everything was perfect, we could not have asked for anything better. Amazing job Art of Animation! Spectacular experience, we loved it all !!!
Very pleasant stay at the Art of Animation Resort
The gentleman who checked us in was extremely patient as we were a third party booking and wanted either connecting rooms w/our daughter and grandchildren or close by, I believe his name was Art and he did a tremendous job of getting us rooms right together, we were very pleased. The little mermaid rooms are absolutely adorable, we loved them, perfect for our needs. The mini fridge served to keep our foods nice and chilled and the coffee and tea maker was a godsend. Shower was nice and hot and very strong, just the way we like it. Beds were awesome, very comfy. Rosario was our room steward and she was so sweet and welcoming, she really appears to love what she does. Our room faced the gondolas and it was such a pleasant surprise to be able to go to Hollywood Studios this way. The walk to Animation Hall was very quick and it was fun to see the other parts of the resort.
This resort is simply spectacular from the friendliness of the employees to the cleanliness of the rooms and resort. The suites are spacious and have everything you would need as a family. A truly comfortable and memorable stay. The decor is incredible and the magic of disney is felt all over the resort. The food at the landscape of flavors is tasty and varied and well priced.
