Both my family and I have recently returned from our stay at the Art of Animation. We stayed here for 14 nights.
The hotel was spotless both inside and out. We stayed in a little mermaid room, it was approximately a 5 min walk from the main reception and Food canteen.
The main big pool is situated in the middle of the resort. We used the pool that was situated outside of our hotel block. This was nice and quiet but didn't have the amenities that the main pool had. If you wanted a drink or anything to eat, you have to go to the main canteen or pool bar which is located at the big pool. I do feel that the other pools do need a place to have snacks or a drink.
If you are thinking about hiring a car to go to disney parks...Dont! The Disney transportation buses are located outside of the hotel and run every 10 minutes! The transport is great and hassle free! The buses run until 2am! And staying in a Disney hotel you get the perks of extra Disney hours at the parks!
The only down side I have (which it me being very picky), we decided to go to Universal Studios, we asked 2 members of the staff within reception the best way to get there. We felt they were not helpful, I personally feel it was because this wasn't a Disney park enquiry. So we tried a couple of routes to get to Universal, if you want to save money (only around $10) take the bus to Downtown Disney, then a taxi from there to Universal studios. The taxis are located on the right hand side of the Cirque du Soleil dome. You can usually find the Mears taxi' s there but we also tried other local firms who also used that spot to park and they were alot cheaper than Mears.
Overall the Art of Animation hotel is fantastic! The location is EXCELLENT and I cannot wait until our next visit!!!
