Disney’s Art of Animation Resort – The Little Mermaid Walking Tour


We recently toured The Lion King section of Art of Animation Resort. That was one of three sections with new buildings at the resort, but The Little Mermaid section is actually the finished versions of the old Legendary section of Pop Century that remained unfinished for nearly a decade.

But now it looks great. King Triton and Ursula loom large in giant sculptures and Ariel and her gang hold court throughout the resorts courtyard. It features exterior walk-ways and entrances like the hotels over in Pop century. There are over 600 cutout objects on the resort balconies.

In the gallery below, we continue our walking tour of the resort under the sea.

Did you see the Hidden Mickey in the kelp?

The chief complaint from people who stay in this section is the walk to the main building / buses. But a stay in these rooms is less expensive than the other sections, plus it looks like a lot of fun.

In our final edition of this walkabout, we’ll visit the Cars section.
