10/10 Stay!
ZORINA W. on 06/07/2024
Guest Rating

Great hotel for the price. Wonderful housekeeping service! Friendly employees all around. It was perfect stay to get to parks on skyliner. Pools nice and clean. The only thing i wish they had is a sit down restaurant. But overall still a 10.

An incredible, immersive stay!
Ranae G. on 06/06/2024
Guest Rating

The theming and pools were incredible! I loved the immersive experience. There were 6 of us that stayed in a lion king family suite and there was enough room for a toddler air mattress and pack and play. The room was clean, but there was water damage (probably from humidity) at the base of the bathroom door. Having a mini fridge was nice and kept yogurt and fresh fruit just fine.

Unique and fun hotel!

I still find it hard to believe that this is considered a value resort! I love everything about this resort including the lobby with the beautiful sketch chandelier. I have seen all of the family suite themed rooms and they are all fantastic! You cannot go wrong with any room type at this resort. Bonus points for having the skyliner as a transportation option!

Cute Disney Animated themed hotel

What a Cute Disney Animated themed hotel! Perfect place to stay with your little ones. The theming makes them so excited to be at Disney World! I love that every room type (even the Standard Rooms) are themed and so much fun! The size of the Family Suites are very accommodating! Love the 2 bathrooms in these. I’d highly recommend staying in the Finding Nemo Family Suites so you can be located right next to the Skyliner Hub and looking straight out into their Most Popular “Big Blue Pool” - makes for super convenient quick access to the theme parks and some additional dining options at Epcot and the many Deluxe resort hotels located there.

Best theming for kids!

This Resort is worth seeing even if you are not staying here. It has the cutest grounds, theming, and attention to detail right down to the plants used in each area of the hotel. I have stayed in a Little Mermaid Standard room and a Family Suite. Having two bathrooms and a kitchenette (which included a microwave) in the Family Suites is a game changer. We had groceries delivered to the Resort to have a light breakfast and snacks in our room. My family also loved the Skyliner access to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios!

The CUTEST Themed Value Resort and the Most Perfect Location!
Ella C. on 07/07/2023
Guest Rating

This one gets five stars from me because it is just so adorable! I absolutely love The Little Mermaid and they have a whole section of the resort dedicated to it! It’s so adorable and I also love the Cars part of it and the Big Blue Pool! It’s so cute and so fun for a pool day for the whole family. You also can’t beat the location, it has great Skyliner access.

My kids' favorite hotel
Kimberly F. on 07/06/2023

My family is OBSESSED with the Cars Family Suites at this hotel. You feel like you are staying in Cars Land. As parents, we love that there is a grown-up room that closes off with a queen bed and full bathroom. The separate living room area (that legit looks like a garage in the best way) includes a sofa bed, and another full bathroom. There also is a Murphy bed that pulls down, but we typically will have the three kids share the sofa bed and leave the table area down instead of using the Murphy bed. It may not work for too much longer, but while the kids are little, it’s perfect! The family suites also have a mini kitchen area with a small fridge and microwave. We like to have groceries delivered on our first day and have breakfast and nighttime snacks available. Again, it’s so nice to have that kitchen table area. We like the Cars Family suites mostly for the theme (it really is perfect), but the Cars buildings are also pretty close to the main building with the cafeteria, and it has its own Cars themed pool with cone cabanas. SOO cute! You can also use the main pool (Finding Nemo’s Big Blue Pool). It’s a little bit of a walk, but we also LOVE that Art of Animation is on the Skyliner route. You take the Skyliner to Caribbean Beach Resort, then get off and get back on to get to Epcot or Hollywood Studios. We also love that you can just take it to Caribbean Beach and eat at our favorite restaurant, Sebastian’s Bistro. Overall, if you have 3 or 4 kids, especially if they are Cars fans, you should 100% stay at the Cars Family Suites. The hotel also has Finding Nemo and Lion King themed family suites, and Little Mermaid standard rooms, but our favorite by far is the Cars themed rooms.

Best Disney Themed Resort and the Skyliner is everything!
Brooklyn B. on 07/06/2023

Love this resort for many reasons! The Disney theme is everywhere. The Resort is divided into different sections. The Little Mermaid section is all Standard Rooms. The Family Suites consist of the Lion King section, Cars section, and the Finding Nemo section (Preferred rooms which get you closest to the Lobby and Skyliner). When you go into each section, it is like you are stepping into that movie. It is so fun! My family of 8 stayed here. We had 6 people all aged 16 and older stay in the Cars Family Suite. It was nice to have 2 bathrooms in the room. Even though we were all older, we loved the theming. The room consisted of a Queen Bed in a Master Bedroom area, Double Size Table Bed that pulls down from the wall, and a Double Size Sofa pull out bed. We were a little nervous about the comfort levels of the double beds, so we agreed to switch beds every other night if needed. We ended up never switching and we slept great. I was on the sofa pull out for a week. The 2 other guests in my party stayed in a Little Mermaid Standard room. I was able to tour their room and it was also so cute in its theming. They enjoyed their stay as well. The Little Mermaid Standard Rooms and the Cars Family Suites are on opposite sides of the Resort, but we were okay with meeting up at the transportation areas each morning. We are all huge fans of the Skyliner access to Hollywood Studios and EPCOT! Then they have one bus stop to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom near the lobby of the resort. The quick service restaurant, Landscape of Flavors, was also fabulous and it was nice to Mobile Order our food from the Walt Disney World app to get a headstart on ordering our food.
