Disney World Resort Hop #6 Part 2 – More Art of Animation

After our adventure in Radiator Springs at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, we sat down for an early dinner at Landscape of Flavors.

It was a nice (and uncrowded) atmosphere for dinner.

At the food court, we ordered a large pizza to share. The box was so cute, I kind of wish we had kept it as a souvenir!

The pizza was decent, pretty much a big version of the personal pizzas we’ve eaten all over Disney World.

We gobbled it up – and BONUS! missed a quick rain storm – then headed back outside to explore the lands of Finding Nemo, The Lion King, and The Little Mermaid.

First up was the Finding Nemo Courtyard, where we sped past the Big Blue Pool before the kids wanted to go in (Room Key required for entry) and whisked them over to the Righteous Reef playground.

This was the most fun hotel I’ve ever seen. It was a GREAT place to visit! I’m sure it’s even greater to actually stay there.

After we finished with this resort, we crossed the Generation Gap Bridge over Hourglass Lake to Pop Century. Time for a snack and some time traveling!

Disney World Resort Hop #6: Art of Animation Part 1 – Cars!

After spending the morning at the beach, we were continued our tour of Disney Resorts with Art of Animation.

This was a great resort for our little kids. Lots of fun from the beginning with some of our favorite cartoons on the outside of the main building.

And even more in the lobby.

The sketches were amazing. I could’ve sat there all day looking at them.

But we didn’t – there was SO much more to look at!

Welcome to Radiator Springs!

I’ve said before that our family LOVES Cars. It was pretty awesome to be able to walk around in a life-size world of Cars.

The Cozy Cone Motel was the entrance to the Cozy Cone Pool.

And the best part of all – The Wheel Well Motel with Lightning and Sally out front. Just unbelievably cool!

We had the best time touring the Cars section of the resort. I hope someday we will be able to swim here.

Since it was so hot, we took a dinner break before touring the rest of the resort. On to Landscape of Flavors, then more animated fun in Part 2!
