Disney's New Art of Animation Resort

Say hello to the newest hotel at Disneyworld Florida - the Art of Animation Resort.  This resort, situated near Disney's Pop Century resort, features value priced family suites that can hold up to six guests in four themed areas.  Choose from Finding Nemo Suites, Cars, The Lion King or Little Mermaid themes rooms. In addition, there are 864 standard rooms as well. 

The Family Suites feature three separate sleeping areas, including a Master Bedroom with queen sized bed, a sleeper sofa that converts to a double bed, and a unique "Inovabed" that will have the kids fighting over who gets to sleep in it - the bed converts from a table for four to a double bed!  There are two bathrooms and a kitchenette, which will save plenty of money over having to eat three meals a day in the parks.

There are two dining areas - Landscape of Flavors, Disney's quick serve dining choice offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, and the Drop Off, a poolside snack bar and pizza delivery service. There is bus service to other Disney World Resort locations.

For the Finding Nemo suites, the courtyard has The Big Blue Pool, the largest of the pools at the resort, the Drop off, The Schoolyard, a water play area fr the kids, Squirts Righteous Reef Playground and huge icons that help tell the story of the film featuring Mr. Ray, Crush, Marlin and Nemo. There is also Movies Under the Stars here!

At Cars, there is fun and relaxation for the whole family. There's the Cozy Cone Pool,  the Leaning Tower of Tires and visit with Lightning McQueen and Sally outside the Wheel Well Motel. Mater, Fillmore, Sara and Doc are on hand as well.

The essence of Africa is found in the design and motif of the Lion King Suites.  Mufasa will greet the kids at one end while Scar can be found a few steps away. There is a Bone in the Yard Playground for the little ones as well. The Lion King Courtyard is steps away from the  Big Blue Pool.

And finally, the Little Mermaid is the area that has standard rooms. There are icons of King Neptune, Ariel and Sebastian while Ursula adds drama to the scene. The Flippin' Fins Pool is in this area. Just a note that these rooms are furthest away from the Restaurants shops and lobby.

Having priced this for several families,  we can tell you that you can save up to $2,000 for 7 nights over the cost of family suites in the other Disney resorts. 

Disney has also refurbished Fantasyland in Orlando to make it even more magical.  Adding Enchanted Forest and Storybook Circus nearly double the original size of this are of the Magic Kingdom.

The Enchanted Forest is an interactive area that features Belle's French countryside. You'll be able to visit "Under the Sea- Journey of the Little Mermaid. The Beasts Castle houses the "Be Our Guest" Restaurant. Belle's Village has Maurice's Cottage where a magical mirror is the doorway to a new kind of story telling that will take you  into the Beast's library to meet Belle and Lumiere.

At the Storybook Circus, Dumbo The Flying Elephant is now twice the size with a second ride added.
Cool off at Casey Jr. Splash and Soak Station, a circus themed water play area.

And there is more coming! Opening in 2013, Princess Fairytale Hall will welcome guests to meet Aurora, Cinderella and other Disney Princesses. In  2014, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train will feature a first of it's kind train of vehicles that swing back and forth.
