    Which is your favorite more affordable Disney family hotel?

    Hi Brandy and thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I see you are visiting Walt Disney World Resort is a few short days. How exciting!!

    All of the Resort hotels are amazing. I love the themed decor, the pools are great and the dining is wonderful. My favorite (and my daughter's favorite) Value Resort hotel is Disney's Art of Animation Resort

    Disney's Art of Animation Resort includes a variety of room sizes, including family suites, in the themed areas of Finding Nemo, Cars, The Lion King and The Little Mermaid. It's also home to the largest Resort hotel pool at Walt Disney World Resort. The Big Blue Pool is not only the largest, it is absolutely amazing! It has underwater speakers making your swim completely "immersive." When you are hungry, make your way over to Landscape of Flavors. You will find breakfast, lunch and dinner and a wide assortment of foods, including burgers, pizza, salad, beverages and yummy desserts. There is also a playground and jogging trail. There are so many great features to Disney's Art of Animation Resort. My favorite part of the Resort hotel is each of the themed worlds. Whether you are Finding Nemo, racing to see your favorite Cars, or visiting The Lion King or The Little Mermaid, you will want to take a walking tour of the Resort hotel. As you visit each area, through your imagination, you will be transported to each world. You will have amazing photo opportunities. It's so much fun!

    If you haven't booked your Resort hotel for your upcoming visit, I would encourage you to do so soon as March is a very popular time at Walt Disney World Resort. If you have any other questions as you make your plans, please stop by again and let us know what information or tips we can share.
