This morning, the third phase of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort opened to the public.
Celebrating the journey of Simba through the Pride Lands of Africa, the courtyards contain landscaping and theming reflecting many favorite scenes from the Academy Award-winning animated film The Lion King. And inside the 320 themed family suites, guests can hang out with the wild residents of the Pride Lands while Timon and Pumbaa make a real splash in one of the suite’s two bathrooms. The second you walk through the door, it is hard to not adopt the duo’s “hakuna matata” philosophy!
With the opening of The Lion King wing, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort now has 1,120 family suites with two bathrooms, a kitchenette, and three separate sleeping areas that can sleep up to six guests. Other family suite theming options include Cars and Finding Nemo. The last phase of the Resort, the Little Mermaid wing, will offer standard rooms sleeping up to 4 guest. That wing will open Sep. 15.
