PHOTOS, VIDEO: Tour A Remodeled “The Little Mermaid” Room at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
With the reopening of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, we were surprised to find that our The Little Mermaid room had been remodeled during the resort’s over seven-month closure. Join us as we go under the sea for this room tour!
The previous Full-size beds have been replaced with plush new Queen-size mattresses. The new bed frames are raised for more suitcase storage.
While the seashell shape and light of the headboards are the same, there are extra details.
One headboard has some seaweed floating next to it.
Ariel is hiding behind the other headboard.
As we’ve seen with most of Walt Disney World’s value resorts, themed bedding is gone and replaced with plain white sheets.
A painting of Eric, Scuttle, and Max hangs on the wall next to the beds.
This fish-lined mirror has seashells that light up, so you can take the perfect selfie and look just like Ariel in “Under the Sea”.
The bright coral-colored chairs are shaped like open clamshells.
The table has sheet music for “Under the Sea” printed on it, in case you want to practice your singing.
The flat-screen TV is brand-new.
There used to be an additional shelf piece on top of the dresser. This has now been removed in favor of a back piece that has additional standard and USB outlets.
One side of the dresser has faux drawers, making up a cabinet door that hides the mini-fridge.
There’s of course an ice bucket and sealed TV remote.
There’s also a coffee maker, which wasn’t always a standard amenity in these rooms.
A major difference in the remodeled room is that the floor is now hard laminate instead of carpet. It’s designed to look like sea-blue wood.
You can hang your hats, masks, or bags on this friendly octopus.
An “Under the Sea” scene decorates the curtain separating the bedroom from the vanity and bathroom.
Behind the curtain is the vanity, and behind another door is the bathroom.
The iron, ironing board, suitcase rack, safe, and extra items are all in the open closet space next to the vanity.
Another mirror offers seashell lighting.
There’s a new soap dish and tissue box, which match the new trash can and ice bucket.
Ariel shows off her collection of whosits and whatsits on the shower curtain.
The shower itself reveals the rest of Ariel’s cove.
The wall-mounted shampoo, conditioner, and body wash is also new, and sealed for cleanliness.
Below, you can watch our video as we take a walkthrough of the entire remodeled room!
