Reddit user FirstResult1 took to the platform to share an exciting magical moment that happened recently. They were set to stay in one of the The Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation, but when they got their room number, they realized they were upgraded to a Cars family suite!

So my mom and I are on the way down and were in the Chick-fil-A drive thru when we got our room number. We were set to stay in a little mermaid room at Art of Animation and we got upgraded to a Cars Family Suite!! I’ve never stayed in a family suite, we are super pumped!

Just got upgraded!! from WaltDisneyWorld

This is a pretty big upgrade as The Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation are basic Resort rooms while the Cars rooms are considered family suites, meaning they are much bigger and even have separate rooms within the suite. This includes a living/seating area, a separate bedroom, and more.

Additionally, the price difference between these two rooms is pretty drastic. For example, if a party of two were to stay in one of the The Little Mermaid rooms from August 7-13, 2021, it would cost about $231 per night while the Cars family suite for the same days would cost $506 per night. You can view more room rates on the official Disney World website here.

This is not the first time a Guest has shared a magical moment like this. In fact, not long ago we reported that Disney World Guests shared on social media that their Walt Disney World reservations booked at All-Star Movies Resort were being upgraded to a Deluxe Resort — Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa!

Additionally, Disney’s Art of Animation is one of Disney World’s Skyliner Resorts, meaning Guests can opt aboard the complimentary transportation line to visit either EPCOT or Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

In case you aren’t familiar with the Disney Skyliner, Guests can board one of the gondolas and glide past one-of-a-kind views of waterways, woodlands, and two Walt Disney World theme parks — Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. The new Skyliner transposition is in constant motion, which means Guests arrive at their destination within minutes! Relax along the way, take in the views, and you will be there before you know it. For more information on the Disney Skyliner, visit our website here.
