Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic stay
Everything about the resort and service was excellent, especially when considering that this is a more of a value resort. The room was a very good size, the cleaning lady was very nice and made sure everything was clean and proper every day. The people at the front desk were so helpful and cheerful, really got into the Disney feeling. And there are buses to all of the parks regularly which was amazing. I will definitely be coming back to the resort.

Amazing experience
It's a beautiful resort and enjoyed walking the grounds. All the staff were very friendly and always asking if they can help you with anything. The suites are so much fun to see. Can't wait to go back again.

Very good 8.0
Obviously our stay was unique with this corona virus. Unfortunately. But the hotel was great
Joanne, ie2 night family trip
Good 6.0
Very unmagical anniversary
I love staying at Disney resorts...most of the time. I was greatly disappointed in how unmagical the experience was. We went for our anniversary and could not be more disappointed. The room was small...with 2 full sized beds. We had to sleep in separate beds all weekend. When we got in the room the carpets were still wet (hopefully from being cleaned). The sink did not drain properly and kept backing up. In addition the entrance to our building was apparently where the cleaning staff stored their carts. We have stayed at 7 other Disney resorts, I expect a certain level from Disney, and this stay completely did not live up to Disney standards.

Great resort, very accommodating staff!
Staying at the AofA was amazing! Great service, quick pick up from shuttle buses to Disney, very convenient skyline to Epcot and HS, and lastly scheduling Magical Express was so convenient! On our last day, we checked out in the morning.. however we were headed to Animal Kingdom for the day. We left our baggage and some items in the fridge at the front desk without having to worry about them. The front desk staff was very nice and held all of our belongings until we came back. All in all, a great experience and we would highly recommend AofA to others!

We had a great time as we love Disney. The bathroom was a little small with one sink only but it was totally ok.

Exceeding All Expectations!
Art of Animation exceeded our expectations in every way! From the beautiful pool, to the shopping and dining, to the themed family suites, no detail is overlooked! The convenience of the Skyliner puts this resort over the top! Literally walk out your door and glide over to Hollywood Studios within minutes. We can’t wait to come back!

Great stay
Everything was absolutely perfect, but those Little Mermaid Suites are quite a walk from the main building and bus stops.
