Disney launched a new website for the upcoming Art of Animation Resort. There's not much new information there, but it does confirm that family suites will be a part of most of the resort and that it will have the usual value resort staples: food court, pool, pool bar, shopping, etc. Basically a clone of Pop Century, which should come as no surprise since that's what the property was originally built to be.
There was one potentially very exciting thing I noticed on the webpage. Take a look at the artist's rendering of the Finding Nemo building. Look closer. See it?
No "motel-style" exterior hallways. If this rendering is to be believed, the new resort may have INTERIOR room access...a first for a non-deluxe Disney resort. Of course it's also possible that the size of the suites will make for exterior entry on one side with the room spanning the width of the building and a window facing the courtyard on the other end. Only time will tell, I guess.
