A Photo Tour Of Disney's Art Of Animation Resort

Disney's Art Of Animation Studios features family suites for more room, and great animation from classic Disney films.

Disney recently opened the first section of their latest Value Resort – Disney’s Art Of Animation Resort.  This resort pays tribute to animation and to four specific classic Disney animated films:  Cars, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and Finding Nemo.  I recently had a chance to take a tour of the resort.  It is impressive.  Like many other value resorts, the amenities are more on the basic side – there is no spa, no Disney character dining, and no sit down restaurant.   However, that doesn’t mean that resort is cheap or boring.  There are plenty of magical Disney touches throughout the resort.   It is colorful and fun.  In addition, this resort features family suites, so large families can stay together in a Disney resort for a more affordable price.  Here is a photo tour of some of the fun parts of the resort.
