THE LION KING FAMILY SUITES AT DISNEY’S ART OF ANIMATION RESORT
(Note: this photo-tour of a Lion King Family Suite at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is a supplement to the full photo tour of a Finding Nemo Family Suites that’s here. At that link you’ll find a floor plan, and also much more detail on such items as bed dimensions, actual storage space, etc.)
The three types of Family Suites at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort–Lion King, viewed here, Finding Nemo, and Cars–have almost identical floor plans, varying only here and there in minor furnishings. (Click any of these images to enlarge them.)
When you enter the Lion King suite, as in the other Art of Animation Family Suites, you’ll be in the dining room, with a bath on either side. Further in the room on one side behind a door is the master bedroom and bath, and on the other side you’ll find the living room and mini kitchen.
The table and chairs are a distinctive feature in themselves…
…and even more so because a bed folds down from the wall, “disappearing” the table.
Note the darling sleepy lion at the head of the bed–a larger image is at the top of the page..
Beyond the dining area through a door you’ll find the master bedroom, with a queen bed on one side…
…and a TV, dresser, iron and ironing board, safe, and one of the two hanging spaces in the suite on the other.
One of the two baths in the suite is accessible only from the master bedroom. This bath has a large shower, but no tub (there is a tub/shower combo in the second bath).
The shower has lovely sun detailing on the shower wall. When I stayed in this room, it was 97 degrees, and I still liked this artwork!
On the other side of the suite there’s another bath–this one divided, with a sink in one space…
…and a toilet and tub/shower in the other, with a reprise of the lovely sun art.
The shower curtain is very cute.
Deeper into the space you’ll find the living room, with a mini-kitchen, small couch, and two little tables that can also serve as seats (including at the dining table) on one side…
…and on the other, a charming wart-hoggy seat, and a TV/dresser/hanging space similar to what you find in the master bedroom, but with one more drawer.
The couch pulls out into a bed.
The mini-kitchen includes a coffeemaker and supplies, a microwave, sink, and some basic utensils.
Here’s a close-up of the fridge with a scaling object.
And the mini-kitchen also illustrates the only complaint one could have about these rooms–the clash of colors and textures.
Note the multi-colored rug on the right, the multi-colored brown wood on the left of the lower cabinet, and the multicolored green trim around the microwave.
To my eyes–and to some others–this is at least one too many different color/texture schemes. But others–like my younger son–just love the “jungle” feel and reminiscences of the movie itself that these colors and textures inspire!
