Art of the Animation is one of Disney’s newer value resorts and is built across the lake from Pop Century. The hotel offers Multi family suites and standard 4 person hotel rooms. The theming is classic Disney, well done and uplifting. Many parts of the hotel are mirrored off of Pop Century, such as the lobby, food court, and pool areas with the one exception being that there are novelties of Disney Animation throughout.
Art of the Animation Resort is in the ESPN Wide World of Sports Resort Area and opened on May, 31 2012. You can find hotel rooms and family suites themed off of Disney animated motion pictures such as Cars, Finding Nemo, the Lion King, and the Little Mermaid.
My first impression of the Little Mermaid rooms is that they are merely OK. There is a long walk from the little mermaid buildings to the lobby/ bus stops. The theming is just right and the outdoor and indoor décor is great for young families. The bottom line is that I think that another value resort like Pop century may be better when you can get preferred rooms that are a short walking distance to the lobby and bus stops. Enjoy the pictures of the Art of Animation resort. Check the Sorcerer Radio Fun Zone for more.
