    I am trying to decide where to stay. My choices are Art of Animation Little Mermaid room or French Quarter. I have two girls ages 6 and 1 and the 1 year old would be in a pack n play. I am really torn between the two hotels. Help?

    Hi Christina,

    I bet you can hardly wait to take your little princesses to this special place! While I love both resorts, I would say that your daughter might enjoy the Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation more!

    The details are simply amazing. She can take a bath or shower in Ariel's cavern of gadgets and gizmos (the tiles are painted as such) or sit in a clamshell chair at the small table that has song sheets to some of Ariel's most beloved songs. When walking around the buildings, there are "dinglehoppers" and "snarfblats" to pose next to for the cutest photo ops!

    The other great reason to stay at Art of Animation is the awesome pool. The Big Blue Pool (main pool) is themed after Finding Nemo. It has a zero entry area, kiddie splash area and best of all, you can hear the music underwater! Yes, you read that correctly, you can hear those fabulous Disney tunes below the water. Not to mention, it is the largest pool anywhere on property!

    As I said before, Port Orleans French Quarter is a very nice resort with some fun touches and spot-on New Orleans theming. However, for your six year old, I recommend what might be a more familiar theme in the Little Mermaid.

    Have a great time and cherish all those precious treasured memories you will create on your trip!
