Art of Animation Cars Section

2014-03-23T19:48:19-04:00

Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is a great option for larger families who still want to stay together in one room. This resort is considered “value plus”, and has whimsical Disney touches and fun themes for each section. There are three sections of suites and one section of standard rooms, but today I wanted to focus on just the Cars section of the resort. When you approach the buildings, you are immediately transported into the world of Cars, and feel [...]

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort – more than just a place to sleep!

2014-02-27T19:27:43-04:00

When you visit Walt Disney World in Florida, it’s tempting to fill every day with the great theme parks and water parks. But it’s a great idea to slow down and experience a day just exploring your resort hotel, too. I did this recently at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and found that they have a lot to offer for a peaceful day off! We started with a walk around the lobby. We enjoyed the great fireplace with its interesting decorative touches [...]

Heather and I recently spent two nights at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort.  Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort has 1293 guest rooms, all rooms are non-smoking, and there are disabled accessible rooms available. We were in room 4315 which was located on the 4th floor and we had a Savannah View.  The rooms are darker than I would have liked but I loved the theming and the wallpaper around the sinks was adorable.  The bed was comfortable, the wifi worked, [...]

I thought nothing could top the excitement of staying in a suite at Art of Animation last week. Being able to add a night in the brand new Little Mermaid standard rooms made it even better! These rooms opened to the public just 3 days prior to us checking in. Could I have been the first guest in this particular room? Who knows.. but I’m going to pretend I was because it will make me feel special. So let’s just [...]

The Hall consists of the Registration area as well as the "ink and paint shop" which carries all of the Disney merchandise and collectibles you could imagine. The arcade which is standard in every Disney resort, they never miss a beat to draw kids in! There is also a business center and currency exchange, airport check in and of course an ATM.
