Disney's Most Family Friendly Value Accommodation

Cheap and Convenient

If you're visiting Walt Disney World with young children, make sure you stay at the Pixar themed Disney's Art of Animation. Featuring all Pixar's best known characters like Nemo and Lightening McQueen, it's fun from the moment you ride Disney's Magical Express, the complimentary shuttle from Orlando International Airport. The resort is in the Wide World of Sports Area, next to Disney's Pop Century Resort. Whether you drive or take Disney's free bus service, you're only 10-15 minutes from Magic Kingdom and Downtown Disney.

Biggest Disney Resort Pool

Apart from its budget-friendly prices and convenient address, the best reason to stay at Disney's Art of Animation is for the pleasure of swimming in The Big Blue Pool. At 308,527 gallons, it's the biggest pool at Walt Disney World resorts, and the first pool to have underwater speakers. Two smaller pools and a water playground are ideal for young kids and less confident swimmers. Playgrounds, a games arcade, and jogging trail add to the fun of this resort. Save your strength and have your souvenirs delivered directly to the resort's Ink & Paint Shop. The dining area offers a wide choice of food to tempt all tastes, with in-room delivery available if your feet simply won't walk another step.

Sleep Well for Less

The resort is a value option, but paying less doesn't mean you miss out on the Disney experience. It's all here, from the superior standard of service to room inclusions like microwaves, kitchenette, coffee maker, and free Wi-Fi. Larger rooms have an extra bathroom and space to sleep up to six adults in blissful comfort.


Hipmunk Staff Review

Arguably the most family friendly Walt Disney World Resort, Art of Animation has bigger rooms than Pop Century Resort with the added value of being Pixar themed.
