This family-friendly club resort is a Disney Value Resort hotel featuring giant icons that salute classic Disney films including Disney Pixar's Toy Story, Fantasia, The Love Bug, The Mighty Ducks and One Hundred and One Dalmatians. The 1,920 guest rooms are divided into 5 pairs of 3-storey buildings with each pair themed after one of the featured movies. For example, the Toy Story section features a 27-foot-tall bucket of Green Army Men, a 30-foot-tall Woody icon and a 47-foot-tall Buzz Lightyear icon. The buildings are painted in bright colours and covered with playful details and hidden surprises. The resort's central building is named Cinema Hall, and the facility includes the 24-hour main lobby check-in desk, the World Premiere food court, the Donald's Double Feature shop and the Reel Fun Arcade.
