After checking in to the resort the directions to my room were to swim to the left, it seems the Finding Nemo section is outside the lobby. Disney really embraces the theming of the resort, even down to telling you to swim through the Nemo section and calling the buildings in the Cars section Garages.

Inside the buildings the carpets were special to the theme, in the Lion King it was a dirt trail with different animal prints. There is also art work representing the films in the main entrance areas of the building and on each floor. The cars rooms have traffic cones and the hallway carpet has hubcaps and checkered flags. The hubcaps are from the cars in Cars.

This might be my new favorite resort. Depending on my group size and prices, I would always put this resort on my list for my travel agent to look into. I hope this resort sets a new standard for Disney for improved functionality and theming.
And for those of you who are wondering at the orignal plan for this resort as the second half of Pop Century, the Lion King would have been the 70's and Mermaid the 40's.
