We had a wonderful trip staying in the cars section at the Art of Animation Resort. Everything was great, family and kids had an awesome trip. This was our first trip driving from Massachusetts to Florida with our 3 and 5 year old boys. I would have to say we were surprised on how well they did, even if they had their moments in the car. I will upload some photos if I get around to it in the next few days. Weather was great and we missed Sandy which was nice, but had to drive home to see all the damage (we were lucky and our house was untouched).
The AOA was great and the rooms were spacious and was good to take pictures of all the things there. We did notice some teenagers climbing/walking all over the cars as well as younger children which was kind of sad to us (since there were “No Climbing” signs all over). We did notice or my son did that one of Mcqueens stickers was ripped off. Kind of sad that some people don’t have respect for things. Just hope that in a few years from now the resort won’t be getting run down already.
Checkin was easy, and lots to see in the lobby. Staff were very helful and kind to us every day we were there. Mousekeeping was good and kept our room very clean, only downside was that most days they didn’t get to our room until 3pm. Kind of difficult for us to take the kids back for a nap, but we managed. Didn’t take the bus once, now we are spoiled having used our car to get around.
We planned this trip for over a year and it was over in the blink of an eye :crying: we want to go back soon, but will have to wait a few years now. We are already talking about June 2014 for my sons 5th birthday. My oldest had a B-day this trip and we are still laughing about it since he told everyone (daily) it was his birthday. He was 5 when we left and he is now 12 since he had a b-day everyday we were there… :blink:
Thanks again to Mouseketrips for helping us out, you guys are great and we are looking forward to the next trip…
