Just in time for the summer vacation season to start, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort opened their second phase of its new family suites at Walt Disney World® Resort yesterday.

In the new Cars themed section which features 480 family suites, guests venture down a freshly paved road into Radiator Springs. Guests will find popular landmarks like Luigi’s Casa Della Tires, Tow Mater Towing, Cozy Cone Motel and the Wheel Well Motel. The Cozy Cone Pool and orange cone-shaped cabanas are present for guests to cool off from the Florida heat.

The high-octane theming doesn’t stop outside! Inside the family suites, orange cones are imprinted in the carpeting and adorning the light fixtures plus animation-inspired artwork is displayed. Pull-out beds extend from the living room sofa (disguised as the back seat of an old hot rod), the tool chest is actually a dresser and the bathroom design is inspired by a car wash!

One of our Magic Makers®, Danny Cox, was on location for the opening of Phase 2 and has provided us with this photo album.

Opening dates for the remaining two sections of the resort are:

  • The Lion King – Aug. 10
  • The Little Mermaid – Sep. 15

Contact your Magic Maker® to check on availability for accommodations at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort for your upcoming stay!
