The “Happiest Place on Earth” is going to be making families even happier in the future. Walt Disney World has just announced plans for a new resort option featuring family suites that can hold up to six guests each. This is welcome news for families that have had to splurge on a two- or three-bedroom villa at one of the deluxe properties or scramble for the limited number of connecting hotel rooms at other on-site properties.
Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, scheduled to open in late 2012, will include 1,120 family suites (with separate living room and bedroom) and 864 hotel rooms, all designed around four unique themes: The Lion King, Finding Nemo, Cars, and The Little Mermaid. The resort will sit on a 65 acre piece of land across the lake from the Pop Century Resort, and will feature giant icons from each of the four movies (including a 35′ tall King Triton) in a central courtyard.
If you just can’t wait two years to take the little ones to Walt Disney World, give me a call. I’ll help you find the best accommodations available for your family now (whatever the size), and we’ll get you in on the “Free Dining” promotion that Disney is offering for later this year!
