Disney’s Art of Animation Resort Lion King Section – Rafiki Added

Hi everyone!

We stayed one night at Disney's Art of Animation Resort in the Cars section (we previously had stayed in a Nemo room for the official Grand Opening night). While there this time, we took some photos and video of the Lion King section, which will be officially opening on August 10th.

Last week, I posted a photo walk of Disney's Art of Animation Cars area (our videos of that area are here). I should have a photo walk up of Animation Hall and Nemo section soon.

This looks dangerous:

Check out our video of Rafiki and the surrounding area!

The detail at Disney's Art of Animation is amazing for a value resort. If you take a look at the icons around Disney's Pop Century Resort (or any of the other value resorts), and then visit Disney's Art of Animation Resort – you'll see a huge difference in texture and detail.

And at the Cozy Cone Pool in the Cars section, here is our view from cone cabana #4:

A few of the new signs that were added over the first two days, these are on the Cozy Cone Pool fence:
