Opening on June 18th, the Cars wing of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is already expected to be the most popular wing of the hotel. We took a lot of pictures over the construction fences during our stay, so let’s see how the next phase of the resort is doing (You may also want to check out our photos from a few weeks ago for a look inside the Cars rooms):

Yes, the Cozy Cone Sign has neon, and unlike the one in the movie, it spins…

Radiator Springs it is.  Childs will love this.  They have done a great job in this part of the Art and Animation Resort.  All that's missing is the ride and you have a new land.  Someone was really thinking when they thought this whole resort concept up.  The 00's to the 40's can be recreated in Pop Century by making each of the 10 building a decade.
