Hello all! I just wanted to post a short review of the Art of Animation. Obviously such cute decor, inside the room and outside. The CMs are great, very polite and helpful. Pool area and activities for guests with young children are phenomenal. Food court is delicious and lots of choices. If you do not enjoy a lengthy stroll to and from transportation, gift shop, and dining, this is probably NOT the hotel for you. One bus area for the entire hotel, located in the front. Also, fairly noisy, day and night (rolling luggage and children laughing/crying/running). While we have enjoyed our stay, I would not book here again.

That room looks adorable , thanks for the review , though we haven't stayed we have had lunch and agree its delicious :) - tracsant  1321.8 #2 12:52PM
Nice pic and thanks for the review! Never been there. - disneycm  664.0 #11 1:05PM
Were you on the pool side? I don't mind the walk but I am a light sleeper, so noisy kids won't work for me. I had booked this hotel for my son's b-day next year. I think I am going to need to switch. - Lelundrial  590.5 #329 1:16PM
Noisy, day and night, was always my biggest complaint about Value resorts! Now I look for resorts that are peaceful & quiet. Thank you for the review! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1173.8 #4 1:17PM
We are in the Little Mermaid standard room. There is a children's pool situated in the middle of the three buildings. The larger pool is towards the front. Personally, I find the rolling luggage and the thumps on the walls from other guests much more annoying than the noise of children! - TinkerAli  229.7 #1567 1:50PM
We were planning on staying in the Nemo or Cars rooms. Something tells me the noise level won't be any different. I have a hard enough time sleeping in a strange bed. I think we will be switching hotels. - Lelundrial  590.5 #329 4:50PM
Room looks nice !!!! - skcanfield  540.4 #13 2:41PM
Thanks for the review. I appreciate it. - 5disneylovers  1127.8 #5 3:54PM
That's kinda disappointing that it's very noisy but hopefully it'll be ok when I go there in Dec. Thanks for the review.  - misseeyore  538.0 #368 4:19PM
Very cute rooms, but the noise would not be good. That's why we only stayed once in the values. Thanks for the reviews. - ally  509.0 #17 4:57PM
There are some downside for a value resort, noise is one of them... (especially the All-Star food court!, it is kinda small and crowded, i never stayed there, just passed-by because of the awesome decors!). I guess Pop century is alright... i never encounter noise, except the last 2 days of my stay.. the other room, they have kiddos and they love to play :)...  - otilegna  2372.7 #58 5:28PM
That's why we are scared to change resorts. Only one minor thing we didn't care for out of two stays, always quite even with conventions and sprin break plus cheer leading weekend and still lived every moment at Coronado sprigs, but these rooms do look cute - TinkTinkTink  250.8 #33 7:23PM
We have stayed twice at Coronado and once at Carribean. Prefer Coronado, hands down...minus the wait time for the bus :) - TinkerAli  229.7 #1567 7:41PM
Only really wait we had was trying to leave Epcot after illumations. One morning we did have to wait for a lil while for a bus to Epcot so the cm monitoring the busses gave us and another fp to any attraction in epoct so we went on test track. So worked out, still love it there - TinkTinkTink  250.8 #33 7:53PM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  130.8 #2965 3:57PM
@Admin. I filled out a form for May 22nd.  I hope you got it. Thanks. - Winnie111286  6076.3 #17 2:23AM
@@Admin I booked with get away today and am staying at the HoJo in December.  Does MW still give the 100 credits or do I have to book with the hotel directly? - dsnylvr1975  17.8 #7392 5:02PM
