1. The Little Mermaid:   The Little Mermaid rooms accommodate up to 4 guests.  These rooms are considered a standard room.  Your shower, sink and walls all resemble the movie.  The headboard’s light up and the rug looks like the sea!  If you have a Little Mermaid fan in your household, this is the room for you!

2. The Lion King:  Next on the list is the Lion King Suites!  Hakuna matata what a wonderful room!  These are stunning!  Suites accommodate up to six guests.  The theming does not stop in the rooms.  It goes all the way into the courtyard and walkways!  Check out the entrance to one of the Lion King Suite buildings!  🙂

3. Cars:  Many families I work with love Cars!  While Walt Disney World does not have a Carsland, you can get your fill of Cars at Art of Animation Resort!  Stepping into the Cars section is just like stepping into Radiator Springs.  This section also houses suites for families of 6 or less.  You will be amazed when you step into this area.  The theming is just outstanding!  Here are some photos to help you envision this area!

4. Nemo:  Finding Nemo is a hit movie with many families.  Beginning in 2016 Nemo Suites are considered a preferred location and will run you a little more money each night.  However, they are centrally located at this resort.  The Big Blue Pool is near this section of the resort and many people find themselves gravitating to this area mainly for the pool, amazing gift shop and food court that is close by!  This section is also decked out with suites accommodating 6 or less.  The suites are completely Nemo themed.  The ocean is your main look! Imagine Nemo and Dory at every turn and you are in the Nemo Suites.
