Last week, I gave a sneak peek of the new Art of Animation resort that will open later this spring. I thought today would be a good day to give some more information about the resort.
The resort will have 1,120 suites that will be themed after "Finding Nemo", "Cars" and "The Lion King". There will also be 864 rooms that are themed after "The Little Mermaid". The family suites are scheduled to be open by May of this year while the standard rooms will follow and open up in December.
The resort is going to have very impressive theming! There will be 3 pools and 4 courtyards. Each courtyard will be themed to the specific movie. The largest pool will be in the "Finding Nemo" area and is the largest pool on Disney property other than the water parks. It will measure 11.859 square feet. The other two pools will be in the "Cars" and "The Little Mermaid" area. There will also be an interactive water play area that the little ones will enjoy.
The resort will be able to accommodate all different sorts of party sizes.
The family suites are very spacious and can fit up to 6 guests. They have 2 separate bathrooms which will allow you to get ready faster in the morning for a great day at the parks! The have a very spacious master bedroom. You will have the options to sleep which include a table that transforms into a bed.
Guests will have access to childcare, concierge services, valet dry-cleaning and self-service laundry.
Other entertainment will be a video arcade and playgrounds.
Dining will also be a treat at this resort with a huge, themed food court.
The location of this resort will be close to Disney's Hollywood Studios and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. There will be transportation to and from each theme park and water park as well as Downtown Disney. The resort is also close to Disney's Pop Century resort.
The first phase of the resort ("The Finding Nemo" wing) will be open in May and is accepting reservations now! Call me today! The "Cars" wing is scheduled to open in late July and "The Lion King" will be September with "The Little Mermaid" in December.
Did I mention that this is a resort in the "value" category with rates similar to Disney's All-Stars resorts as well as Disney's Pop Century Resort? An even better reason to book!
I can't wait to see this resort!
