Disney’s Art of Animation Resort Milestone Reached

| February 23, 2012 | Reply

With any new resort or attraction at Walt Disney World one of the key milestones is hoisting or installing the new sign in front of the venue.  Last week that milestone was reached at one of Disney World’s current projects.  The over 46-foot sign at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort was installed marking one of the final touches to this brand new value resort.  The resort will feature four wings dedicated to four of Disney’s most popular animated films; Finding Nemo, Cars, The Little Mermaid, and The Lion King.  The resort will feature a mix of family suites and regular guest rooms once it’s complete.  The resort will open in phases and begin welcoming guests on May 31st.

Walt Disney World Imagineers and construction crews bring to life the over 46-foot Art of Animation marquee using three layers of development; digital design, model, and full-scale installation.  This sign now holds the record for the largest freestanding marquee at Walt Disney World and is 18 inches taller than the famous “HOLLYWOOD” sign in Los Angeles, CA.  The marquee will welcome guests as they enter the resort.
