THE CARS FAMILY SUITES AT DISNEY’S ART OF ANIMATION RESORT

(Note: this photo-tour of a Cars Family Suite at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is a supplement to the full review of the Family Suites that starts here. In that review, you’ll find more detail on such items as bed dimensions, actual storage space, etc.)

Family Suite Floor Plan Disney's Art of Animation Resort from yourfirstvisit.netThe three types of Family Suites at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort–Cars, viewed here, Finding Nemo, and Lion King–have almost identical floor plans, varying only here and there in minor furnishings. (Click any of these images to enlarge them.)

Entry to Cars Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort--from yourfirstvisit.netYou enter the Cars Family Suites from the dining room, with the dining room table on one side…

Other Side from Entry at Cars Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort--from yourfirstvisit.net…and access to the second bath, mini-kitchen and living room on the other.

Bed Side of Master Bedroom in Cars Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort--from yourfirstvisit.netBeyond the dining area, through a door, you’ll find the master bedroom. The master bedroom in Cars is the most lightly themed of those in the Art of Animation Family Suites.

Master Bath at Cars Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort--from yourfirstvisit.netAccessible from the master bedroom is the master bath, with fun car-wash theming around the sink…

Master Shower in Cars Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort--from yourfirstvisit.net…and a simple shower.

Sink in Second Bath at Cars Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort--from yourfirstvisit.netThe second bath is accessible from the open part of the Family Suite, and is divided into a sink area–also car-wash themed…

Couch Side of Living Room at Cars Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort--from yourfirstvisit.netOne side of the living room has the couch and mini-kitchen.

The biggest difference between the Cars Family Suites and the other two types at Art of Animation is the coffee table.

Couch Side of Living Room Lion King Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort from yourfirstvisit.netIn the Finding Nemo and Lion King Family Suites (Lion King is shown above), you won’t find a single coffee table, but rather two small round ones that also can serve as stools, so that the room can seat six.  The stools can also be dragged over to the dining room table so that it can hold around it 6 as well.

Coffee Table Detail from Living Room in Cars Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort--from yourfirstvisit.netIn Cars, instead you’ll find this amoeba-shaped single table with a map of Radiator Springs.

You can still seat six in the living room, if you grab two chairs from the dining room and pull them in. Moreover, this table appeared sturdy enough to serve as a bench at the dining room table…but not quite so flexibly as the little stools in the other rooms.  But if you break it you buy it!

Detail of Mini-fridge in Cars Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort--from yourfirstvisit.netAlso on this side of the main living space you’ll find the mini-kitchen.  Note the garage/shop theming…

TV Side of Living Room at Cars Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort--from yourfirstvisit.net…which is also picked up on the opposite TV-side wall, where you’ll find the second hanging rod in the space, TV and storage, and a chair.

Wall Art in Cars Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort--from yourfirstvisit.netI really like the wall art in these rooms…

Personally, my favorite decor among the Family Suite options at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is that of this Cars room. But that doesn’t really matter. If your kids love all of these movies, they will love all of these rooms!

Great photo tour, Dave! I know Ian would LOVE to stay in one of these suites, but I’m just too cheap to justify the cost difference between these suites and POR. Of course, it would be splendid to have the 2nd bathroom!

Heidi I get you…if you don’t need sleeping space for six, these are definitely pricey!!

Loving the photo tours! Someday we hope to be able to justify staying there. (Dang DVC membership) I didn’t realize how big the table bed was. Lots of sleeping room!

So did it have a fridge? We got a letter saying we may not have one!

5 Dave { 08.29.13 at 6:56 am }

Hi Brelynn–yes, there’s a mini-fridge and it was fine!

How comfortable were the pull out couch bed and pull down bed?

7 Dave { 06.02.14 at 7:03 am }

Amber, I thought they were both fine. The pull down bed is more comfortable than the fold out couch.
