I just came back from a wonderful, wonderful vacation in Florida and had a chance to look at Disney’s brand new resort, Art of Animation!! You may recall that I posted a video about the resort and how it was getting ready to open. Well the first phases of opening have begun, and it is glorious!! Just a short jaunt (across a lovely bridge over the Hourglass Lake) away from the Pop Century resort, Art of Animation is so lovely. The first section of the building that has opened is the Finding Nemo section and it’s really neat because it’s designed as though you are Nimo! So it’s pretty much like a giant fish tank!! The other sections of the resort are Lion King, Little Mermaid, and Cars themed. Each of them are sized around a specific character, in the Lion King you see from Simba’s point of view, in Cars you’re Lightning McQueen, and in Little Mermaid you are Sebastien!! By the next time I return to Orlando, the whole resort will be open!! I’m so happy I got to see the resort while I was there, it’s a shining example of how amazing the Imagineers are and what fantastic work they do!
Look it’s a really big Crush!!
