Art of Animation--just returned from our trip and we won't go back to AoA

We just returned from a 12 day trip to Disneyworld. We stayed at Wyndham Bonnet Creek for most of our trip--we always stay there and love it! However, we were able to fly down a day early and I booked two LM rooms for our family at AoA for the extra night we needed at the beginning of our trip. We were excited about the chance to stay at a Disney resort and had heard great things about AoA. We were not impressed.

The resort is CROWDED. Seriously, the food court is a zoo and there was no Disney magic there at all. The guests were rude and pushy. The cast members seemed bored and uninterested. They kind of blankly stare at you when you bring your tray up, give you your total, and move on. Sbarro at the mall has more friendly service! The guest behind me got so frustrated with the wait that she picked up her tray and walked right past the cashier, and to her table without paying. Plus, the food is ridiculously overpriced (again I know this is Disney so I expect it...just stating the obvious) and was similar to what you'd get at a mall food court for 4X the price. I know this is a value resort, but it was bad. We also found the pool area to be crowded and mediocre. Everyone raves about the Nemo pool and I wasn't impressed. The underwater speakers were no big deal and the pool did not seem that cool to me. The theming was good, but it was not special.

Before our trip my wife said that the kids may not want to leave AoA after the first night for Bonnet Creek. The exact opposite was true. All four of my kids said that they were glad to leave and we were so much happier at WBC.
