Art & Film Come to Life

Have a great, fun family experience filled with art, and magical colors when you stay at the Art of Animation Resort Disney in Orlando Florida. The Art of Animation is a huge Disney World Value Resort designed to give you a captivating view of some of your favorite Disney Movie characters and some from Disney’s Pixar® as well. Excitement abounds as your kids come face to face with characters that they have come to know from the movies. Each one of the Four major themed areas are full of larger than life personalities of your movie favorites.

Budget Friendly but still Disney

So, you are on a budget and making sure that you stretch your dollar as far as you can this year, who isn’t these days? The Disney Value Resorts are a great way to stay on at Disney World and get all of the same perks of those staying at one of the Moderate or Deluxe Resorts. Consider the Disney World Art of Animation Resort if you are looking to save some cash on your next Disney World Vacation.

Rooms and Suites

Standing out from the other Value Resorts many of the rooms at the Art of Animation are very large Family Suites with space for up to 6 guests. The remainder of the rooms are considered standard with similar features that you would find in a normal hotel room. One of the greatest features of the Art of Animation resort is that they have more Suites than regular rooms. Okay, the suites cost more because they give you additional space to spread out, but they also sleep up to 6 people in each one. If you are comparing the Art of Animation to the others you will find that the All-Star Music is the only other Value resort that offers a Family Suite . Standard rooms will work just fine if you are looking for the least expensive option and you don’t have more than four (4) guests.

What a neat place for the kids (well, we enjoyed it too). The large artifacts built for the kids to see Lightning McQueen up close and Ariel and Nemo, Wow, you should see their faces. It is like putting your kids in the middle of the movie. The rooms are very clean and the staff (oops, cast members) are just the best. I know the Disney Art of Animation Resort is a Value property but we have stayed in some of the others and for smaller kids, this is a great option. The food is pretty good in the food court and there are plenty of options.


Staying in some of the higher end Moderate and Deluxe Resorts, I would say that the biggest let down would be the food. The food court has a number of options but they just don't have that sit down feel. Staying in the Little Mermaid section is the least expensive because this area has standard rooms and not suites. If you stay in these, get comfortable walking shoes because you are a long walk from the dining area and shuttle buses.
