The Art of Animation Resort is the newest Value Resort at Walt Disney World and one that has many people buzzing. During Disney Social Media Moms in 2012, we had a chance to take a peek at the resort just before its grand opening. The lobby is extraordinary in its overall design. The check-in counters are quite different from other hotels and run all the way down in a rainbow of colour. If you make your way through the main building, you’ll notice original cartoon sketches from some of your favorite Disney films. We had a nice reception here last year, but didn’t get a chance to stay on-site.
In all honesty, we are partial to the Deluxe category of resorts and the Art of Animation Resort is not as posh as the others we have stayed in. Unlike the other resorts, this one is heavy on the characters and infused with all aspects of some of the most popular films. If you are looking to save some money, want a really great pool, and are looking for quick dining at a low cost, this is definitely a great pick. You can see our review of other aspects of the resort and check out a room tour of the Little Nemo suites over on Child Mode.
The hotel has 4 different themed sections: Cars, Lion King, Nemo and the newest addition; The Little Mermaid. On our last day at Disney World, we decided to check out the resort’s new Little Mermaid rooms. My youngest daughter is obsessed with The Little Mermaid, so I thought this would be a fun opportunity for her and her sister too.
