Just Booked Art of Animation!

This will be my first time in a value resort! I hope it's as good as the deluxe and moderate. I am not a fan really of moderate, but it is my life goal to stay in every Disney hotel.
I have booked the Little Mermaid room for a girls birthday. 4 adults!
I was hoping someone could give me some tips and perks about this hotel. =D Only 2 weeks to wait!

Thanks!

You didn't say, but with four adults I hope you booked more than one room. The Mermaid rooms are kinda small.

If you are expecting the same kind of amenities you get at a Deluxe, you'll probably be disappointed. They have big statues of the characters on each area of the resort. Also, they have a pretty good food court in the main building.

I stayed in a Mermaid room last December. I enjoyed the resort. If you resolve now to not compare it too much to the Deluxes, you'll enjoy it as well.

Hi, the decorations in these rooms are beautiful!

The funny part was when I went to open what I thought was a dresser drawer, and it turned out to be a door leading to the mini-fridge!

I stayed there solo and found the room to be a bit small, so I think it would be really crowded with four adults in one room. If you can, I'd suggest splitting into two groups of two and getting a second room.

Enjoy the theming!

It's only one night since we are passholders and just live an hour away so the small room wont be terrible since we wont be in the room all that much. So it's different buildings like port orleans? I thought it was one building. hmm

Yes, it is different buildings. The Lion King, Nemo, and Cars family suites each have a separate building. The Mermaid rooms are another separate building. Then there is another building that has the lobby, gift shop, arcade and food court.

It looks big if you look at a map of the property, but it's not that bad. To get from Mermaid to the main building, you have to walk past the Lion King area.

As long as you don't compare the 2 ( meanin AoA and a Deluxe ) you'll be fine. Even this type of Value Resort ( meaing all suites ) if doing to have a completly different feel from a Deluxe.

AoA is also extremely popular with families so expect lots and lots of kids.

Hi, I think the OP said she and her friends will be staying in a Mermaid room rather than a suite.
