Updates on Disney’s Newest Resort Hotel

Disney released some new renderings of the newest Resort hotel at the Walt Disney World Resort – the Art of Animation Resort.

There will be four themed areas at the resort, including The Lion King, Cars, Finding Nemo and The Little Mermaid.  There will be 864 standard Value Resort rooms in The Little Mermaid buildings, and 1,120 Family Suites in the other three areas.

Once the Resort opens in 2012, it will create 750 permanent jobs (not to mention the construction jobs created or maintained between now and then).

MyFox Orlando has posted some really cool photos of Imagineers decorating the mock-up rooms.  These rooms will likely cost more than the current Value Resort rooms due to the elaborate themes and decor, but we predict refurbishments of the other 3 Value Resorts once this one is open, to bring them up to a level playing field.
