Disney's Art of Animation Resort Opens This Month

Part of the magic of Disney is that feeling you can get of being small again; reliving part of your childhood, either real or idealized, just for a while. Disney's newest resort takes that idea even farther, shrinking you to the size of a small clownfish. Walk into the Finding Nemo courtyard of Disney's Art of Animation Resort, and everything scales up to the size Nemo would see it: his teacher, Mr. Ray, stretches to a 27-foot wingspan, and Crush the Turtle is big enough to cradle you in the curve of a fin.Impressive, too, are the guest rooms; not so much for their size, but for their creative use of space. One-bedroom family suites sleep up to six people, thanks to a clever trick with a pull-down bed that serves as a table for four during daylight hours. Family suites also include two full bathrooms, a microwave and a refrigerator.The Finding Nemo section of the resort opens at the end of this month. On June 18, the Cars section will open, followed by The Lion King on August 10. The Little Mermaid wing, which will house standard rooms with room for up to four guests, will open September 15. Rates for family suites will start at $248; rates for standard rooms start at $94. All Disney resort guests enjoy the perks of staying on-property, including extra time at the theme parks, complimentary transportation to and from the airport, and complimentary transportation throughout Disney World.
