The newest Disney value resort hotel pulls you directly into the story.
The Disney Art of Animation Resort makes you feel as though you are a character
in one of the movies. The buildings,
pools and landscaping in each area are themed.
Buildings feature rudimentary storyboard sketches that reflect the development of the stories. Other buildings are richly painted and act as scenic backdrops to their respective storyline.
Large icons from the movies adorn the resort. The images are visually appealing and kid-friendly, not gaudy like other value resort icons.
Landscaping, albeit immature, is themed as only Disney can do it. Like other areas of Walt Disney World, the landscaping matches the theme. The Cars area is a dry, dusty desert. Finding Nemo transports you under the sea with seagrasses, while the Little Mermaid area feels like a rustic seaside. The Lion King section has a jungle-like feel.
Art of Animation features three pools. The centerpiece Big Blue Pool in the Nemo area is the largest pool on Walt Disney World property. With zero entry and an underwater sound system, the pool is truly special.
Two smaller quiet pools are located in the Little Mermaid and Cars areas of the Disney Art of Animation Resort.
Disney Art of Animation Resort is fun! Come for a visit and be transported into the Disney animated classic movies.
