Pop Century Legendary Years Become Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

We’ve been wracking our brains to figure out what would become of the Legendary Years, and today we’ve found out!

Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, a 2000+ room resort hotel, will be taking over the space previously dedicated to the Pop Century Legendary Years section. This will be another value resort, but with a twist — the majority of the rooms in this hotel will be family suites, which sleep six people. Disney’s had success with the family suites they built into Disney’s All Star Music Resort, and has determined that it will be economically sound to build a resort focused on them.

Like the other value resorts, Disney’s Art of Animation will also feature giant icons of beloved Disney characters. These will reflect the four Disney films chosen to make up the sections of the resort: The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Finding Nemo, and Cars.

The resort is scheduled to open in sections in 2012.
