    We are staying at AOA, we have 3 girls that are 6, 3 and 1. Which suites, Disney runs deals on the Lion King and Cars and not Nemo but I think our kids would like Nemo better. Pros/Cons to Lion King/Cars/Nemo suites?

    Hello Jamie!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort is an Endlessly Magical experience for kids no matter which of the Family Suites you chose to stay in.  It was my kid's first Walt Disney World Resort experience and we chose The Lion King Family Suites for our adventure.

    The Family Suites are not only packed to the brim with amenities and space for the family that requires a little more room while on vacation, but immerses Guests in their favorite Disney and Pixar movies.  My recommendation is to gauge priorities and select what appeals to the needs of your family the most..

    If the Special Offer is not a priority but the theme is a must for your girls, then I would recommend the Finding Nemo Family Suites.  They are closest to the major centers of attention: the Big Blue Pool, the Main Building, Landscape of Flavors, Disney Transportation, etc.

    If you are most interested in taking advantage of the Special Offer and you have to choose between The Lion King Family Suites or a Cars family Suite, I would choose a Cars family Suite for theme (if they like Cars) and the private pool area and The Lion King Family Suites for close proximity to Disney Transportation and the quieter area.

    The Finding Nemo Suites are the "Preferred" Suites due to proximity to all of the action, but you will be spending a lot of time immersed in the world of Nemo when you visit the Big Blue Pool for swims.  When my family visits again, I will take the Special Offer over the Finding Nemo Suite experience and spend the extra money on a Walt Disney World Resort Tour or Special Event.

    Good Luck with your decision!
