    HI:

    We usually stay at Port Orleans two rooms, but would consider a suite at Art of Animation, how do others like it.

    We stayed in a Cars suite last August and loved it. We had ample room for our family of 5. My husband and I enjoyed having our own space separate from the kids. Having the mini-kitchen and two full baths was great. The resort is beautiful, and we absolutely adored the Radiator Springs section. The Big Blue Pool was wonderful -- we were able to watch the Epcot fireworks while swimming. We loved everything about the resort.

    What building did you stay in? (cars section)
    i requested building #1 because it looked like it was the close to the bus stops & the main building.
    I have heard people complain about the mermaid rooms being so far away.
    My dd loves cars, i am getting so excited to see her face when she sees where she is staying!!

    We were in building 3 overlooking the lake. It was the Casa de Tires building, and the kids just loved it. We had a blast at the Cozy Cone pool, too. All of the Cars buildings have a short walk to everything, IMO.

    I didn't stay in the suites but I did stay in the Little Mermaid section and loved it. Here is video I took of the LM room: http://youtu.be/H1Gnima3Abg

    The resort is beautiful. Wonderfully decorated and immersive. The underwater speakers in the pool are super cool too.
    Here is video I took of The Big Blue pool: http://youtu.be/Sov9jQCmZoA

    And here is video I took of the Cars wing and pool: http://youtu.be/bEHo_97ABwc
    Hope that helps

    Are there doors on the bedroom part of the suite as I could not see any in one of the pics I looked at.

    Thanks everyone for your great info, as well as the links to utube and other discussions. It sounds like a winner of a resort. We always stay in port orleans riverside, two rooms but depending on which one is cheaper may try this resort.
