    New resort for WDW

    Just read this from the Disney Parks Blog web site.

    Big news…we’ve just announced plans for a new resort at Walt Disney World Resort that’ll bring to life some of our most beloved characters and stories. Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will be one-of-a-kind, featuring family suites designed around four themes: The Lion King, Cars, Finding Nemo and The Little Mermaid.
    It’s a resort designed with families in mind. There will be amazing sights at the different themed wings of the resort, including a model of King Triton that’ll eventually be 35 feet tall and tower over guests. And Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will also have themed room interiors in its nearly 2,000 new units — 1,120 family suites in The Lion King, Cars and Finding Nemo wings and 864 themed rooms in The Little Mermaid wings. Suites will have both a living room and a bedroom, offering added space.

    All of the themed suites and rooms at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort (to be located adjacent to Disney’s Pop Century Resort) are expected to open by the end of 2012.

    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    Re: New resort for WDW

    This resort looks amazing!!!
    Since this resort is going to be very much themed for kids and is going to be located next to Pop Century, do you think its going to be a value????
    Also, do you think this is taking the place of Pop Century's legendary years??

    Yes Value. Finishing I believe the section of Pop that has been abandoned for years.

    Here is the link to the Legendary Years of Pop that was abandoned with pictures. Several posts down is a link to Jeff Lange's photos. They are excellent.

    Disney has their work cut out to fix some of the damage of the past
    10 years it has been openly abandoned.

    When I first heard the name of the resort, I was kind of hoping it would be a more sophisticated theming of disney art.
    However, this is going to be a great addition and I cant wait to see it!

    Its about time.

    This brings up another question however. While we were in Disney World A couple of weeks ago, I noticed what appeared to be a resort construction site on Vista Blvd. once you pass Fort Wilderness and head down a ways. Anyone heard anything?

    I knew this wasn't a New announcement. Took me a while to find it.

    It's still a new announcement... Jim Hill was writing about a rumor (and that article is from years ago). Plus he thought that they were going to re-theme the CURRENT pop century. Anyways, it's always neat to see things he predicts come (sort of) true.
