A virtual tour of Disney's Art of Animation Resort

Hi everyone. I thought you'd might like to have a quick look at some of the really cool photo opportunities at the newest resort at WDW called Disney's Art of Animation. I stopped by earlier and snapped a few photos for your enjoyment. Please excuse my photography skills as I "blog on a budget" so all pictures are shot with my iPhone 4s and then given a quick edit on iPhoto. Someday I'll be a rich blogger and I'll buy better cameras. But hey, use it as a good excuse to come and check everything out first hand!




No introductions are needed here. King Mufasa surveys his land at The Lion King area of the resort! Of course, Simba, Timon and Pumbaa can't be far behind.

Lurking just beyond the elephant graveyard, Mufasa's evil brother Scar keeps an eye on all who pass by, including one of his biggest fans! Come on now. We all need a favorite villain!

Henchmen Shenzi, Banzai and Ed keep a close eye on the kids playground here in the elephant graveyard. There is mist that goes off every now and then and that adds to the eeriness of the backstory. It also feels good on a hot Orlando day.

Of course, Disney's The Lion King wouldn't be complete without the voices of reason and guidance - Rafiki and Zazu.



Next. Let's take a little trip "under the sea" with Disney's The Little Mermaid.

The images over here are larger than life and certainly offer many great photo opportunities.

There are gadgets and gizmos a plenty! And whozits and whatzits galore!!!

These are probably my two favorite photo spots at this whole resort and as close to life-size as you're going to get. The evil sea witch Ursula and the great King Triton.

You can almost hear Sebastian crooning with all the other sea life as you marvel at all of the detail.

The Little Mermaid wouldn't be complete with Ariel. Beautiful as ever and with her BFF Flounder by her side, this sight will bring a smile to any pint sized princess face!

I hope you enjoyed this virtual tour of Disney's Art of Animation Resort. If there's somewhere you'd like to see, just let me know and I'll be on my way!

Stay Disney my friends!
