Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is a resort within Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It is located where construction on the unfinished half of Disney’s Pop Century Resort.
The resort is the first to be built in the complex in over seven years and the fifth to be placed in the value-priced category, along with Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort, the All-Star Music Resort, the All-Star Movies Resort, and Disney’s Pop Century Resort. Family suites opened on May 31, 2012, and standard rooms opened on September 15, 2012.
The resort is designed “with families in mind.” It features four of Disney’s popular character themes: Cars, Finding Nemo, The Lion King, and The Little Mermaid (which uses a couple of buildings that were originally built for Pop Century’s “Legendary Years” section before construction halted, which left them unfinished for years.) Much like the other Disney Value Resorts, giant versions of various items are built around the hotel on each of the ten wings, such as a 35-foot (11 m) model of King Triton. In total, there are 1,984 rooms. of which 1,120 are family suites capable of housing up to six people, featuring living rooms and bedrooms. The remaining 864 sport the standard value layout. The resort has a total of ten buildings, as well as three themed pools.
