Disney Love at the Art of Animation Resort

8323514571_377a70caf1_bA while back we were invited to preview the Art of Animation Resort and while it was beautiful, we didn’t get a chance to experience first hand until this past December.  Boy was it amazing!  It’s hard to believe that this is considered a Disney Value Resort, with rooms starting at $118 per night, when you consider all they are offering.

CHAN 2012This themed resort is full of visual eye candy from their larger than life Cars displays to characters from both the Lion King, Finding Nemo and The Little Mermaid.  Your child will be totally enchanted from start to finish making this resort a destination unto itself.  With loads of fun family activities on schedule like movies under the stars, Pixel Play Arcade and illustration classes, you’ll need to set aside a day away from the parks to fully enjoy.  This resort also boasts the largest pool of all the Walt Disney World Resorts.  As for food, you won’t go hungry at their Landscapes of Flavors.  Tons of delicious options in a cafeteria style setting.  To read about our amazing personal experience with allergies, check out my post: http://thedisneyfiles.com/allergy-diaries-oh-the-magic-of-disney/

For parents, you’ll enjoy the in-room kitchenettes and 24/7 self-service Laundry facilities.  This social media mom loved the FREE wi-fi too!

While this was our first stay at the Art of Animation Resort, it certainly won’t be our last!  For more pictures from our stay, check out our flickr feed at the Disney Files: flickr.com/photos/thedisneyfiles
