PHOTOS, VIDEO: Tour a Newly-Remodeled “Cars” Family Suite at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
You’ll feel like you’re staying in the Cozy Cone in this Cars family suite at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. With the resort open again, we’re taking time to rest and relax in some of the best themed rooms at Walt Disney World. You may have joined us on our tour of a recently remodeled The Little Mermaid room. Now you can follow along as we tour a Cars suite.
Everything in this room—from the floor, to the lamps, to the kitchenette—is themed to Cars.
The floor is striped black and white, reminiscent of a road or a tune-up shop. These rooms used to feature carpets, but were all remodeled with vinyl flooring.
One of the first things you’ll notice upon entering is this breakfast table covered in Radiator Springs signs.
The side tables resemble tool carts. (The wheels are just for show, so don’t plan on moving these around.) On the wall are regular and USB ports for charging devices.
The table actually folds down to reveal a twin bed hidden in the wall.
Mater is sleeping soundly on the headboard, with the Cadillac Range shining in the moonlight.
In the living room space is a sofa resembling ’50s style convertible car bench seats.
This retro-style table has a map of Route 66, featuring Radiator Springs.
Of course, this sofa is also hiding a surprise bed.
Above the sofa bed is a beautiful picture of Doc Hudson driving around Willy’s Butte.
The lamp shades are traffic cones, and another traffic cone is hidden under the tabletop. This end table light can be turned on and off using the foot pedal on the floor.
The curtains also have traffic cones in a subtle pattern.
The kitchenette will remind anyone of an auto repair shop.
There’s a mini-fridge, coffeemaker, and microwave, plus wrapped utensils, plates, cups, and coffee.
In addition to the four chairs at the breakfast table, there’s this extra pleather chair in the corner.
The TV is mounted on the wall above a tool cart dresser, also retrofitted with USB ports.
There’s also open closet space in the living room. The bottom has a deep drawer with extra pillows inside.
On top, you can see the Googie-style retro ceiling lamp.
The bathroom appropriately has a “Carwash” sign above the mirror. The counter declares you’ll get “spiffy in a jiffy.”
The shower is painted mint green like Flo’s V8 Cafe, with white striped tiles featuring a bubble motif.
The shower curtain shows a scene from Cars in which Red sprays down Lightning McQueen.
And of course the wall-mounted body wash, shampoo, and conditioner are sealed for cleanliness.
Finally, there’s the bedroom.
There are more Cozy Cones on the headboard.
The end tables have Radiator Springs postcards printed on them. The Cozy Cone nightstand lamps also have USB ports.
Like The Little Mermaid room and most value resorts, themed bedding has been replaced with white sheets, slightly downgrading the theming factor in this room.
Thanks to new bed frames, there is space under the bed for storing suitcases.
Sally and Lightning drive through the wilderness in the picture above this bed.
Here at WDWNT, we like to pretend Cars 2 never happened. However, there are themed postcards on this table themed to the movie.
Both the dresser in the bedroom and the one in the living room have additional outlets on top.
The iron, ironing board, and safe are in this open closet space.
The bedroom has its own attached bathroom with similar theming to the other one.
The main difference is that instead of a shower curtain, there is a glass door.
