Disney Art of Animation Resort is now open and welcomed it’s first guests yesterday. This brand new Walt Disney World resort hotel is perfect for families. Not only does it have amazing themed rooms and resort areas, but it offers value accommodation in the new Family Suites which are designed to sleep up to 6 guests. These offer the largest sized family accommodations of any Disney World Resort Value Hotel
The Art of Animation Resort is part of Walt Disney World’s Value Hotel collection. This offers guests the chance to have all the benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World resort at a great price. The location is great and transportation to the parks is included for guests. There are other perks of being a Disney guest such as Extra Magic Hours where you can get into the parks earlier and stay later than the general public on select days of your stay.
The hotel is huge. Even by Disney World standards! It has 864 rooms and 1120 suites!
Disney Art of Animation Resort Hotel has 4 differently themed areas all designed around different Disney Pixar movies. The Little Mermaid are has standard rooms which sleep up to 4 guests. Current pricing ranges from $94 to $179 per night which is an amazing deal for a Disney World hotel room.
The Family Suites which sleep up to 6 guests are located in The Lion King, Finding Nemo and Disney Pixar Cars themed areas. Kids will love these wonderfully themed rooms! The grown ups will love the space and the value that these rooms offer. 20 square feet suite. The Family Suites have a separate bedroom with a double bed. There is also a living room which has a single sleeper couch and a double sleeper sofa. The suites have basic kitchenette facilities of a refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave.
Prices for the Family Suites start at $248 per night so are particularly good value if you have a family of 5 or 6, or simply if you want the extra space.
There are 3 themed swimming pools in Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. The main pool has a Finding Nemo theme and is named The Big Blue Pool. This pool is most likely to the the busiest of them all!
There are 2 additional swimming pools available at the Art of Animation Resort. The Cozy Cones is in the Cars themed section and Flippin Fins Pool in The Little Mermaid section.
The Art of Animation Resort does not have a full service restaurant. What is does have is a (usually very busy) food court.
