Disney’s Art of Animation Resort Radiator Springs CARS Section Family Suite Detailed Room Tour, Cozy Cone Pool at Night – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We stayed in the Radiator Springs CARS section at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort last week for the first public night (below, left). We were in the Luigi’s Casa Della Tires building – this is one of three guest buildings in this area. Guido (below, right) is on one of the pieces of artwork on the floors. Please click HERE for all of our past coverage of this exciting new resort dating back to it’s beginnings as Disney’s Pop Century Legendary Years Resort.

There is bedding for up to 6 guests, including this table that has a fold out bed (below, left). The dresser in the living room looks like a toolbox, as does the area for hangers next to it (below, right).

Video #1 – Disney’s Art of Animation Resort CARS Section Family Suite Detailed Room Tour, Radiator Springs – We stayed one night in the CARS section at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, this is the room we stayed in – the first official night Radiator Springs was open! Fully detailed tour includes the bedroom, bathrooms, and living area plus special Disney touches. Check our YouTube channel for more Art of Animation Resort videos.

The kitchenette includes a microwave, small refrigerator, coffee maker and sink (below, left), making it easier for guests to enjoy leftovers from the park and resort restaurants. The couch in the living room has a retro car seat feel to it (below, right), and is very comfortable. There are cones everywhere, from the carpet to the drapes, to the lamps!

The artwork in the room shows various scenes of cars from the film (below, left), and the coffee table has a map of Radiator Springs along Route 66 (below, right).

The bathroom is themed to a carwash, from the “Spiffy in a Jiffy” slogan (below, left) to the bubbles on the shower wall. Lightning McQueen gets his car washed in this shower curtain (below, right), which should be for sale eventually in the Ink and Paint Shop for $99.95.

The bedspread is themed to the Cozy Cone Motel (below, left), and is flanked by two cone lights. There are what looks like postcards scattered about the desks and dressers, but they aren’t real (below, right). We hope eventually Disney will sell them!

Here is a look at what the bed looks like when it’s down (below, left). Tow Mater is on the headboard, taking a nap in the garage (below, right). The bed is easy to bring down, and I found it comfortable.

Video #2 – MouseSteps Weekly #8 Cars Suite at Art of Animation, Aquatica, BRAVE Review, Vintage Muppets Tribute – A detailed tour and our thoughts on the Radiator Springs CARS rooms at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Sea World’s Aquatica Orlando Summer 2012 Preview, Our review of the new Disney/Pixar film BRAVE and this week’s vintage segment is a tribute to the Muppets Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem Band including never before shown photos from my archive of “Here Come the Muppets” (1990-1991) and “Muppets On Location: Days of Swine and Roses” (1991-1994)!

We took a look at the Lion King section from a distance, which is set to open on August 10th (below, left). Rafiki is now in place (below, right), still partly wrapped at the legs. The Lion King section is set to open August 10th, 2012.

Video #3 – Disney’s Art of Animation Resort Lion King Section Construction Update 6/19/12 Rafiki, Mufasa – Latest look at the Lion King section of Disney’s Art of Animation resort. Rafiki has recently been added as has Mufasa, Pumba and Simba. The Lion King section is set to open August 10th, 2012.

We enjoyed the Cozy Cone pool during the day, but it looks just as nice at night (below, left). The pool was still and the cone cabanas made a lovely reflection (below, right).

Chairs sit inside a cone cabana (below, left), one of 8 at the Cozy Cone Pool. The cone cabanas are first come, first serve!  We’ve spent many hours in cone #4. There is a laundromat here at the pool (below, left), though Denise had issues trying to get in – so we didn’t get photos.  We are very impressed with the detail in the Cars section of the resort, which we enjoyed even more than the Finding Nemo area.

Video #4 – Cozy Cone Pool at Night – Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Radiator Springs CARS Area, Disney World – This is the Cozy Cone Pool in the Radiator Springs Cars section of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort at night – The new pool features free Cone cabanas (first come first served) and also includes laundry facilities.
