Now, for the first-time-ever, Disney has opened it's all-new
Art of Animation Resort.
After weighing in on
the project, Disney executives finally approved the construction of the family
resort back in 2010.
Built on 65 acres across from the Disney’s Pop Century
Resort Lake, the new Resort transports guests into the heart of all the action.
After breaking ground last summer, the 2,000 room resort featuring 1,120
family suites will accommodate the new trend of family oriented travel including
864 traditional hotel rooms
After three years of success, Disney has modeled
the new Resort after the All-Star Music Resort where 215 suites were converted
from among 430 ordinary rooms. Disney’s Art of Animation Resort offers a
family-suite value for one low price.
As guests approach the courtyards,
they are greeted with giant icons that pay homage to four of Disney’s all-time
favorite film classics. Fans will be dazzled as Disney makes tribute to four
themes including Finding Nemo, Little Mermaid, Cars and The Lion King.

predicts that this one-of-a-kind Resort will provide affordable suites for both
families with children or extended families. By adding more than 1,000 new
suites to its lineup, Disney has cleverly enticed more guests onto its property.
Where the All-Star Music Resort lost capacity during the initial conversion
process, the Art of Animation Resort has more than recouped that lost.
With a substantial market for suites in today’s economy, Disney hopes that the
Art of Animation Resort family suites will be a highly popular value product.
Majority of rooms are six-person suites, equaling the same capacity of
the Pop Century resort which has 2,800 convention rooms.
As the low-end
scale at Disney World’s complex prices will be set as a “value” resort.
Lion King Family Suites Opening August 10th
Guest will be divided between 10 wings of guest rooms and a separate building
housing the check-in lobby and restaurants. Each of the hotel wings will be
separated into four distinct groups, each with a theme from a different animated
movie. Each courtyard will be anchored by an icon based on a particular movie
Presiding over the Little Mermaid section will be anchored by a
35-foot tool image of King Triton Each section will be splashed in
lively-colored palettes indicative of the four animated movies. The hotel
transitions guests into the movies as characters as they meander through the
Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will house one of the
largest 12,000 sq ft pools amongst any of Disney World's two-dozen hotels and
Let the little ones make a splash at one-of-a-kind pool
combining slides, climbs, and play at the Resort’s playground. Looking for some
personal time? No worries, no you can recline in your charming guest rooms while
