Art of Animation Cars Suite Photos?

I've tried a few different searches for this but haven't been able to isolate any useful results as I can't figure out how to narrow down the results properly.

I'm staying in a Cars suite in a few weeks and would love love love to see some photos beyond what's on the Disney website. I've seen lots of pool shots of the pools, the bone yard and a ton of the super cute Little Mermaid rooms but no Cars suites-or even Lion King for that matter.

So if there are links or you have some I'd LOVE to see them or be pointed in the right place to see them.

Thanks!

If you type the AOA Cars suite in your Google bar and press enter, then click on images they will come up.

My family liked the look of the Lion King room better, but we ended up picking cars. We were on the 4th floor facing the pool. The view was awesome! We all loved it. You felt like you were in the movie. When we got home my kids would find themselves looking out their window and missing the view! It was also an awesome walk to the main building. The outside was our favorite of all the rooms.

The inside was fine too. Very cute details.

Thanks!

I guess I'll just keep doing this. I was hoping for more real life shots. Most of the ones from the Google image searches are fairly professional and the finer details aren't shown.

I guess I'm hoping that the details are as encompassing as they are in the Little Mermaid rooms, which are fairly heavily documented in the trip reports I've seen here.

We stayed in a Cars suite and it IS on target with the theme. The living area/pull out sofa was good sized and comfy according to my boys. The sofa is like a bench seat in the cars from that time The eating area was fun and the bed that folded onto the table was comfortable according to my DD. I didn't take pics of the bathrooms, but they were of adequate size for a family of 5. The adult bedroom wasn't as themed as the front room but, honestly, we didn't notice at the time. Queen bed was very firm.

The only thing that didn't work well for us was Landscape of Flavors. The different bays and 3 young, opinionated children led to discord. We ended up sending one parent to get pre-made items (very dry sandwiches) or we all went to one bay for food. We chose the wrong one for breakfast. The basic eggs, sausage, biscuit, potato one was TERRIBLE. All was cold/dry and the potatoes tasted like onion powder on steroids.





Goofing off here! Cozy Cones made us giggle…it was a LONG arrival day

Thanks!!

The pictures are cute so thanks for sharing! Having someone talk specifically about the Cars suites is actually helpful too! I'm feeling a little more excited about it now! We're doing a split stay between AOA, Shades of Green and Pop and I've been questioning paying so much for the suite. I think we'll enjoy it.

We actually have a bunch of ADR's and are pretty much only planning on one lunch (and a light one at that thanks to Ohana for breakfast and an early BOG ADR) and one breakfast. But we normally go for the basic breakfast items so I'll steer clear, thanks!
