Art of Animation
The room was small but clean. The layout of the hotel is really spread out so there is a lot of walking if you are in one of the perimeter buildings. Art of Animation is basically a Best Western with Disney drawings on the side of the buildings and Disney statues in the courtyards. It is convenient to the parks with the bus service. Since it is a "Disney resort" you pay for the honor to stay there but it was not as nice as I was expecting it to be. It was not awful, again it was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful but the next time we go to Disney, we will stay somewhere else.

Sad and overpriced
The master bed was uncomfortable. The master shower tiles were a bit unclean. Housekeeping knocked THREE times on our only day to sleep in. We asked about a late check out the night before our check out date and were told that we would receive a phone call in the morning but we should be able to stay until 1. We had to call at 10:15 and were then denied the late checkout. Housekeeping then entered without knocking at 10:45 while my children were dressing. Don’t believe we’ll be back.
