This was our second time to stay on site, but we loved the Art of Animation more than The Port Orleans-Riverside, which is a great resort as well. We really enjoyed all the details around the resort. The Lion King Suite was the perfect size for our family of 5. The restaurant at the resort was decently priced and had...

Great resort for families with small children, on a budget. We came in for our November Disney vacation for one night, building 8, long long walk from the front desk to the back portion of the property. Small rooms, nothing fancy but affordable and probably a lot of fun for the little ones, nice pools. Ask for buildings closer to...

This property may be a little farther off beaten path from the other resorts but it is one of the newest and nicest of all the Deluxe Resorts and as family friendly as it gets. We stayed the week after Thanksgiving in the Lion King Suites and the family suite is awesome, decked out in everything Lion King and can...

This was our first time staying on site for our Disney trip, and it was perfect! We stayed in a family suite and there was plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 children. The children loved the hidden bed! Also, having 2 bathrooms made a world of difference in our comfort for the week. The big blue pool was...

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...

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...

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...

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...
