    I am thinking about staying at the art of anim- cars suite , is the resort too far to the parks compared with french quarter for ex ?? how abt the bus queues and food facilities ?thnx

    Hi Nancy!

    The Art of Animation Resort is a fabulous resort.  The Cars area of the resort is especially well themed and a favorite of many guests.  The resort has a great pool for a Disney Value Resort and probably the best food court in all of Walt Disney World.

    The Art of Animation Resort is not as centrally located as Port Orleans Riverside or Port Orleans French Quarter.  However, I'm not sure it really matters.  The Art of Animation has great bus service with only one bus stop at the resort.  The biggest part of the transportation time, in my opinion, is waiting for the transportation in the first place.  The only exception to that is if you are on the monorail line and can take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom or Epcot. 

    Thus I would stay in the Art of Animation if you would like a family suite.  If you want more service and amenities at the hotel, then I would consider upgrading to a Disney Moderate Resort such as Port Orleans Riverside.  However, I  wouldn't do it just for the location of the resort within Walt Disney World.  Good luck with your decision!
