Disney’s Art of Animation Resort Construction Update, Magic Kingdom, Grand Floridian 1900 Park Fare – Photos and Video (Now in HD)

Hi everyone!

We stopped by Disney’s Pop Century Resort yesterday to get some photos of the construction going on at the future Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. There is a lot of upward construction now, though all the numbers signifying the Pop Century Legendary Years (the portion of the resort never built) are still in place (below left and right).

There are several floors already being put up, and lots of work going on at the site yesterday (below left and right).

Disney released some new concept art at the recent press event. “A SCULPTURE FIT FOR A KING:  Disney Imagineer Joni Van Buren sculpts a model of King Triton from Disney’s animated classic “The Little Mermaid.” (below, left) King Triton, in his final form, (below, right) will be 35-feet-tall and tower over guests at Disney Parks newest resort hotel, “Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.” (photo & concept art (c) Disney)

“The new resort will feature themed building exteriors and room interiors that bring to life famous Disney and Disney-Pixar animated feature films like The Lion King‘, ‘Cars,’ ‘Finding Nemo‘ and ‘The Little Mermaid‘. Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is expected to open by the end of 2012″. (concept art (c) Disney)

Disney’s Art of Animation (construction below, left) will be the fifth resort in the value category, joining the three All Star Resorts (All Star Music, All Star Sports, All Star Movies) and Disney’s Pop Century Resort. You can see several floors in this one building (below, right).

There was a worker on one of the other buildings nearby that was to house guests (below, left). You can see some of the construction equipment from the Pop Century feature pool (below, right), though we didn’t find it noisy or intrusive.

There is some new Duffy the Disney Bear merchandise out, including this Duffy St. Patrick’s Day bear (below, left) and a Buzz Lightyear outfit (below, right).

The boats that used to be at Animal Kingdom were transporting guests between the Polynesian, Grand Floridian and Magic Kingdom yesterday (below, left). And we rode Goofy’s Barnstormer, which included a great view of the new Fantasyland construction (below, right).  The last day for Mickey’s Toontown Fair is February 11th, 2011!

We received this Barnstormer Frequent Flyer card after riding (below, left and right). It will make a nice souvenir!

After seeing “The Magic, The Memories and You!“, for the first time without looking through a camera (it’s really an awesome show) we went to 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian Resort for a late dinner with friends (below, left). I posed with one of the wicked stepsisters (below, right).

Denise from Mousesteps poses with Prince Charming (below, left). Another of the stepsisters stopped by (below, right), and assured us that she didn’t have a hand in the food preparation!
