AMENITIES AT DISNEY’S ART OF ANIMATION RESORT

Amenities at Disney's Art of Animation Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

Most amenities at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort except the pools are in its central “Animation Hall” area.

Lobby Disney's Art of Animation Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

Here you’ll find the loveliest lobby, by far, among the value resorts. The check-in area…

Gift Shop Wall Disney's Art of Animation Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

…the side wall that separates it from the gift shop…

…and note the art on the back wall.  On our last visit, characters from Winnie the Pooh were greeting as we checked in! (No characters were present at our five prior check-ins, so don’t count on this.)

Bus Stop Disney's Art of Animation Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

Outside you’ll find the bus stops. With one stop, and no bus sharing, Art of Animation has the best bus service among the values.

Gift Shop Disney's Art of Animation Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

Back inside, between the lobby and the food court you’ll find the large gift shop.

Next is the food court, “Landscape of Flavors.”

The best food court among the values or moderates, Landscape of Flavors combines traditional food court fare…

…in a setting that is, mostly, warmer and more inviting than the other food courts of its size. This sky light fixture is from the ceiling in the “Lion King” area of the food court.

Perhaps best of all–real plates and utensils!!

Trying to decide where to stay. I like the idea of 2 bathrooms and separate sleeping spaces at Art of Animation. However I am wondering if the decor may be a little over the top for my parents who are paying for the trip. Don’t really want to share sleeping space at Polynesian. Any further advice? Need space for 4 adults and a 10 year old. Thanks

Melissa, the family suites at All-Star Music are much less over the top. See this.
