Art of Animation Resort

Resort category: Value

WDW Prep Favorite: Yes

Pros: Some of the best theming in all of Disney World, dedicated buses (meaning they don't share with other resorts), most rooms are suites, bigger and better food court than other Values

Cons: Spread out, spotty cell phone service and wifi, most expensive of the Value Resorts, Little Mermaid rooms are never part of promotions
