The hotel is located near many popular family attractions, including Attitash Mountain Resort and Storyland. If that theme doesn’t interest you, there are a few other fun kid friendly suites.

Disney’s Art of Animation Suites
Disney’s Art of Animation is their newest on-property resort. It’s in the value-resort category, so it’s great for families looking to save money while still having lots of space. The resort offers three different themed suite areas – CARS, the Lion King, and Finding Nemo (a fourth section, The Little Mermaid, offers standard hotel rooms). These suites are fully decorated based upon the theme, and offer a separate bedroom, as well as a pull-down bed (which doubles as a dining room table, as seen above), and a pull-out couch. As a Disney property, guests receive benefits exclusive to on-property Disney guests, including complimentary transportation to/from the Orlando Airport and to the parks, access to the Disney Dining Plan, and special Magic Hours.
