Disney today announced that they will construct their first new resort hotel in more than 7 years - The Art of Animation Resort. This resort will be located across the bay from Pop Century, where the never-completed and long-vacant Legendary Years section of the Pop Century resort is currently sitting unused.
The resort will feature 1,120 new Family Suites and 864 regular rooms in wings of the resort themed to famous Disney and Pixar animated features - The Lion King, Cars, Finding Nemo, and the Little Mermaid.
