    Hello panel. Trying to decide when to book. We want to stay in the new AOA resort. Can you tell me a month/year the suites as well as the single rooms will open? Just saw new pics on allears and CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!

    Hi Jaynee,

    I'm eagerly anticipating the opening of Disney's Art of Animation Resort too!  I saw the construction going on during my last visit in May.  It's so exciting when Disney opens a new resort.

    I know that the family suites in the Finding Nemo, Cars, and Lion King wings of the resort will open before the more traditional rooms that accommodate four in the Little Mermaid section.  The suites in the Finding Nemo wing are scheduled to open in late spring.  It looks like some accommodations should be available in May 2012.  The rooms for four will open last, probably not until late fall.  Check in with your favorite travel agent for more specific dates. 

    Also, keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for updates on the construction at this resort.

    Best wishes,
