Disney’s Art of Animation resort video and pictures

One of the newest Disney resorts being made will be opening in late May, and they recently had a press review for it. Disney’s Art of Animation resort is a very stunning looking Disney hotel, as you can see in these videos and pictures.

It has more than 1,000 suites plus 800 normal hotel rooms. There seems to be a different theme for each wing of the resort. The pool is very big and seems to be done in a “Finding Nemo” theme, which is fitting.

Other themes for the different wings will be the Cars wing, the Lion king wing, and the Little Mermaid wing. I’m not sure if just the Finding Nemo wing will be open in May or all of the resort.
