I gotta say right off the bat, you know you can expect exceptional family-friendly service from the Disney brand. There is a lot of comfort in that as a parent. Let's face it - you are choosing your kids' happiness when you explore a Disney vacation.
The newest Disney resort to officially open this weekend is right on brand. The "Art of Animation Resort" in Orlando Florida immerses guests in all of the Disney animated movies - and I mean IMMERSES.
Every room has an animated Disney movie theme. Like Nemo? The Nemo family suites have wall murals of sea life, Nemo bedspreads, shower curtains, and a Nemo image that hangs like a headboard.
You get the idea - same with the Cars, Little Mermaid, and Lion King family suites. Yes - FAMILY SUITES - that is the greatest part about this resort. This is a perfect example of Disney catering to families - When I travel with my family I always wish more resorts would have family friendly rooms that aren't a fortune. Here, you can get 2 separate bathrooms,
a master bedroom - a total of 3 separate sleeping areas within the living space, which includes a generously sized dining or work table that easily transforms into a comfortable bed. They sleep 6 - big families everywhere rejoice! The suites start at $249 a night.
Other amenities include 3 different swimming pools (needed - the resort is huge - more than 1,000 rooms)...
and 4 different courtyards with various Disney animation themes. There is in-room babysitting, pizza delivery,and you get extended park hours when you stay. Guests also get complimentary transportation to the theme parks and water parks. This particular resort is right near Disney's Hollywood Studios.
There are so many different Disney resorts from which to choose when you visit Orlando... each one has it's own personality, but do some research to find the one that best suits your taste. There are Disney packages you can buy and find them on the resort websites, and there are also travel agents who specialize in all things Disney.
Hey - almost forgot - today marks the start of summer - Gotta love it! Enjoy the holiday weekend and wherever you may travel.
