Recently we made another trip to Walt Disney World to bring you the best guide to Disney’s Art of Animation.  Come take a look at what we found.


Disney’s Art of Animation celebrates the love of animation and artistry.  The lobby, pools and resort buildings all capture the drawings behind the animations we love so much.  Cars, the Lion King, Finding Nemo and the Little Mermaid are all represented at this beautiful resort.  Art of Animation has dedicated complimentary buses to take you to the parks and Disney Springs.

Family Suites

What makes Art of Animation different from other value resorts are the family suites!  These suites are for parties up to six people.  They have two separate bathrooms, a table bed and a kitchenette.   The Little Mermaid rooms are standard rooms for 4 guests.  As you can see, the theming in the Cars Family Suite is amazing to the smallest detail!  The room was well sized, located near the lobby and main pool.  The Cars area also has it’s own themed pool!

Pools and Bar

Art of Animation has three pools to choose from.  The Big Blue Pool is the Nemo themed main pool is the largest pool at any Walt Disney World Resort.  This pool even has your favorite Disney music under water!  There is also a great splash area for the little kids.  The Drop Off Pool Bar offers cocktails, beer, wine, non alcoholic drinks and snacks.  The Disney Dining Plan is not accepted here.

The Cozy Cone is the Cars pool.  It’s much smaller and and quieter than the main pool, but the cones offer a place out of the sun.

Filppin’ Fins pool is the Little Mermaid pool.  While smaller and quieter, it has Princess Ariel watching over the swimmers.

Things to Do

The Art of Animation offers Movies Under the Stars, a jogging trail, a playground and the Pixel Play Arcade.
