Disney’s Art of Animation Resort – The Suites

In a previous post, I started my sneak-peak at the new Art of Animation Resort at Walt Disney World.  Art of Animation is a new value resort featuring family suites and standard rooms that put you in the world of some of your favorite Disney animated films.

The closing night party of Disney Social Media Moms was held at the resort.  As you can see, we had a great time.

But as great as the resort was from the outside, we couldn’t wait to see what the rooms look like.  I haven’t stayed in the value resort properties, so I had never experienced what Disney considered a “family suite.”

This is what you see when you first walk into the room.  It’s in the small entry area of the suite.  You think, oh, it’s a a table and chairs.  But it’s more than that, as you will soon see.

Off to the right, at least in the room I looked at, was the living area.  You can see some drawers for storage, a TV and all the way on the left is a rack for hanging clothes.  These rooms certainly make the most out of the space.

This is the other side of the living room area.  Anyone who has seen Nemo even half as much as I have will get a kick out of all the cute touches like the hanging school of fish.

To the right of the couch is this “kitchenette”.  It’s a microwave, sink and a fridge.  You’re not doing any real cooking here, but it’s great for snacks and light meals.

Here’s the bedroom and the queen sized bed.  Notice the special Mickey towel sculpture.

The rooms also have TVs and dressers – behind the door is another clothing rack for storage.

Remember the dining room table earlier in the post?  Voila – it folds down to be a second bed in the room.

I had to try it out.  It was pretty comfy all things considered.

The couch in the living area also folds out to be a bed.  Overall, the suites can sleep 5 – two in the queen bed in the bedroom, 2 in the pull down bed, and 1 on the couch.

The suites have two full bathrooms, which is a big selling point for me.

Themeing, as you can expect, is really everywhere.

We were all wowed by the attention to detail in these rooms.  You really felt like you were living in Nemo’s world.

I still had some reservations about us changing our vacation plans to stay here, as Soccer Girl was begging and pleading me to do.  I think the rooms are perfect for a family who might otherwise consider getting 2 rooms to fit everyone and all their stuff.  If it was just our family going, this would be perfect.  But Grandma was coming on this trip, and the sleeping arrangements would be complicated to say the least.

To persuade me further, Soccer Girl walked me into the still under-construction Cars area.  Cars is one of IT Boy’s favorite movies, and she knew that if she were going to plead her case, the Boy was the way to my heart.  Stay tuned…

Where do you like to stay at WDW?  What are your priorities when it comes to accommodations? Location?  Transportation?  Themes?  Let me know in the comments below.

Disclosure: As an attendee of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, I received for a fee hotel accommodations, park tickets, many meals and access to special events not made available to the public.  Disney did not ask me or anyone to blog about this event, but being a fan of the company I can’t help myself.

  1. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours nowadays, but
    I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article
    like yours. It is lovely worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the net will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
