Last week I had a pleasure of going to Orlando and staying at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort which is a Walt Disney World Value hotel with standard and family suites themed to Disney Animated films.It had The Lion King, Little Mermaid , Finding Nemo, and Cars themed Suites . We choose to stay at The Lion King suites as my little one loves Animals.

In addition to all of these amazing amenities and services, what I really loved about this resort is it’s design & decor. It has Disney’s most popular larger than life icons everywhere which made me feel like I was already in one of the theme parks. My stay at the Art of Animation was more than what I really expected and am really excited to share my experience with you all.
Magic Express :
It all started with the Magic Express. Magic Express is an Airport shuttle service which is available on request . It’s a complimentary transfer from the Orlando airport to the hotel. This service also picks up and delivers luggage directly to guestrooms for those arriving between 5 AM – 10 PM.
As soon as you enter , You will find a colorful Lobby with lots of beautiful Disney paintings. I must say that their Guest service is way beyond what I expected. They are available 24/7 for your service. If you are celebrating Birthdays, Anniversaries or any other special occasions then just let the front desk know about it so that they can arrange something for you.
I will explain things to do & benefits of staying at this resort in my next blog but for now let’s jump into the Lion King Suites. We choose to stay at The Lion King Suite and on our way to the suites I really felt like am in a jungle with lots of trees and larger than life Icons which are best for photo opps.
The Rooms are operated by Magic Bands which are given to each of your family member when you check-in.
The suite was HUGE with colorful tropical decor from the movie The Lion King. We were 2 Adults with one infant but it can fit upto 6 Adults . I must say all the Beds were really very comfortable. As I walk in, there’s a Living room area with a full sized sleeper sofa, chest of drawers and flat screen TV with a Kitchenette.
A dining room table with seating for four converts to a queen size bed.
There is a full bathroom with tub and a separate sink and vanity area right infront of the Dinning Room.
The Master bedroom features a queen size bed, chest of drawers, flat screen TV , safe and an Ironing board.
The Master bedroom has a full size attached bathroom with an oversized walk-in shower.
There are 3 Themed pools but we spent most of the time at Finding Nemo pool as it’s largest pool in Walt Disney World Resorts.
They also play one Disney movie daily under the stars . I watched Finding Nemo, Finding Dory, Frozen & Tangled.
There’s Landscape of Flavors food court with a wide variety of food options including healthy options like fruits,Milk & yogurt for the kids. There’s definitely something for everyone.

I would highly recommend this place to everyone with/without kids. The atmosphere all around the Resort was fun and Family friendly. I really liked it because I stayed there for 6 nights and each and every day I woke up with a smile and strolling around the resort really made me feel happy. It truly adds a pinch of magic to your vacation. This is Just the Lion king Area of the Resort , There’s a lot more to share about this resort (Things to do while you are at the Resort) which I will be sharing in my next blog.
Last but not the least, I would like to Thank the guest service of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort for Mailing my ‘Jacket’ all the way from Orlando to Los Angeles (Free of Charge), which I accidentally left in my Room.
