Art of Animation with 4 adults and 2 kids


“Hi, we are a family of six staying at the Art of Animation soon. We are four adults, an 11 year old and a 6 year old. Will we fit for sleeping?”

Heather, that is a really, really, really good question. The Art of Animation is a beautiful hotel. I love the Pop Century but I love looking at the Art of Animation. The Cars suite. The Cars section. The Little Mermaid section. Lion King section. It’s just so beautifully decorated. I just enjoy walking around and looking at the Art of Animation. The problem is most of the rooms at the Art of Animation are Family Suites.

Family Suites, they’re cool and everything, but four adults and two kids they’re probably not the best idea. There is one real bed in the Art of Animation Family Suite. One queen sized beds. The other beds are an InnovaBed and a pull out couch.

The InnovaBed folds out of the wall onto that table. (Check out this video that shows an InnovaBed being pulled out of the wall.) Look at that video and you can see that it doesn’t look like something for big adults. It looks like something for kids. Frankly, that’s what it’s for. It’s for kids. You’ve got the one queen sized bed, the InnovaBed, and the pull out couch which might be good for an 11 year old and a 6 year old, but I don’t know.

Four adults, 11 year old, 6 year old, maybe not the best idea. Now, if you were to go over to the Little Mermaid rooms and get two rooms at The Little Mermaid rooms where you have four beds in two rooms, about the same price, actually probably just a little bit cheaper than the family suites if you can get two Little Mermaid rooms.


The Little Mermaid are always sold out. You can get the same room set up at the Pop Century, all the Value Resorts. They’re cheaper than the Family Suites. But two rooms at one of the Value Resorts, two standard rooms, come with four beds. Now, granted you probably don’t want to put two Pooh-sized people in the standard beds. Dad and Mrs. Mom are Pooh-size people and we each take our own bed.


Dad’s Bottom Line

It’s probably not the best idea to have four adults plus 2 kids for the Art of Animation Family Suite rooms. You could do it, but it might be a little uncomfortable.
