The Art of Animation at Walt Disney World Resort is where animation meets real life making memories you just can’t beat!  In just a few short weeks, some of my dearest friends and oh so talented colleagues will be attending the 2013 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and I can’t wait to follow their magic.  The conference will be hosted at The Contemporary Resort and as in years past, many families will choose to extend their stay at another Disney property and in my opinion, some of the luckiest will visit the amazing Art of Animation Resort  Cars and experience Radiator Springs.  With 480 suites big enough for a family of 6, Cars won my family’s heart during our recent stay as part of the New Fantasyland Media Event.  While attending the 2012 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, we got a pre-opening sneak peek of the Nemo wing and its amazing pool.  I couldn’t wait to come back and experience the resort and I promise you, it doesn’t disappoint!

While they look glamorous, media events are hard work.  My family had more time at the hotel than I and thoroughly enjoyed the pool, the game room, and most especially the spacious room to relax and recharge. With 2 teenagers towering over my husband and myself, the reality is we need a room that can comfortably fit 4 adults and 1 child.  The suite full of traveling amenities like a small kitchenette, 2 bathrooms, and lets face it 2 TVs, was very accommodating and a blessing to us all.

On our last official New Fantasyland Media Event morning, I was out early to scoot over to Splitsville and was in awe of how magical the Cars Wing was in the early morning light.

The sidewalks are more like a freshly paved road that winds through Radiator Springs leading guest to the Cozy Cone Motel complete with a Cozy Cone pool and cone-shaped cabanas.

And the kids got a big kick staying in the Wheel Well Motel.  Not only were Mater and Flo there to greet us day and night, once on the complex you had the sheer delight to wander the roads of Radiator Springs every time you enter or leave, enjoying every aspect of the characters to the tiniest themed detail.  As expected, we found Cars to be a perfect fit for our family’s needs and without exception, Walt Disney World Resort continues to prove its core commitment to make sure busy families just like yours and mine truly do have the chance to make memories that will last a lifetime.  Tell me…

Are you planning a trip to Walt Disney World soon?  Where do you plan to stay?
