…and in January before the rip-rap rock seawall was put in on the shoreline to keep the sand from eroding. Those barriers IN the water are called “diapers” and they keep construction debris from getting into the lake.

Aerial Site Plan for Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

Aerial Site plan for disney art of animation resort

Work continues on an exciting new resort hotel built around the themes of Disney animation. 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.

Crowned by a 35-foot-tall model of King Triton, the family-friendly resort will 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.

Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, the 25th resort at Walt Disney World, will be one-of-a-kind, with themed building exteriors and room interiors, and larger-than-life icons from the animated films in the courtyard areas. To be located next to Disney’s Pop Century Resort, all of the themed suites and rooms at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort are expected to open by the end of 2012.
