Art of Animation

In 2012, Disney welcomed its first guests to the Art of Animation resort, a celebration of the colorful world of Disney feature animation. Expanding upon a new concept in family accomodations, the Family Suite, the Art of Animation resort quickly became the most popular Value resort on property.


Boasting both family suites and standard guest rooms, the 1,984 room resort has the largest guest capacity of any Walt Disney World resort. This place is huge! There are 1,120 family suites, each able to sleep up to 6 adults and 864 standard rooms that accommodate 4 adults. Featuring the largest pool on Disney property, the Art of Animation offers big fun for everyone!
