|Finding Nemo Wing|
If I was a kid, I think my dream hotel stay would be at Walt Disney World Orlando's new Art of Animation Resort. The resort- which opens in phases starting May 31 - features rooms and special suites around four different Disney movies: Finding Nemo, Cars, The Lion King, and The Little Mermaid.
You can tell that the resort is unlike any other Disney property as soon as you walk up to the Finding Nemo wing: a mammoth Nemo sculpture greets visitors and the exterior is painted to represent an under-the-sea feel. In the Cars wing, a "freshly paved" road leads to the Cozy Cone Motel that includes a pool and cone-shaped cabanas. The rooms and suites represent each movie's storyline too, with details such as bubble ceiling lights in the Finding Nemo rooms and Zazu headboards in The Lion King suites.

The new resort also features Walt Disney World's largest resort swimming pool at 11,859 square feet. Of course, the pool area stays true to the move themes with a giant-sized Mr. Ray and a Squirt statue in the children's play area.
Rates at the new Art of Animation Resort start at $248 per night for a suite that sleeps up to six people.
