Disney's Art of Animation is Sweet-Looking New Hotel

By January 10, 2012

Follow me on:

It's not scheduled to open until May, but I got a sneak peek at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, the latest hotel at Walt Disney World. Like Disney's other Value Resorts, Art of Animation will feature oversized statuary and whimsical themeing; in this case, the Disney and Pixar films, Finding Nemo, Cars, The Lion King, and The Little Mermaid will provide the inspiration. Unlike Disney's other Value Resorts, Animation will be the first to offer family suites, which I think is a great idea and overdue for Disney World. [As Derrike correctly points out below, Disney's All Star Music Resort also offers family suites.] And the Value price should be appreciated by visitors on a budget.

I got some shots of the Finding Nemo courtyard, which is still under construction, but mostly finished. See Nemo, Marlin, Crush, and more in my mini photo preview of Disney's Art of Animation Resort.

The pictures were great- and I can’t wait to finally see it in person during my next Vacation to Disney!

One thing, Disney’s All Star Music Resort has family suites. The last two times I’ve gone to Walt Disney World, my family stayed in one.
