The Disney Parks Blog has shared a new look at the mural inspired by scenes from Walt Disney Animation Studios films that will be on display when The Villas at Disneyland Hotel opens on September 28.
Disney Animation Mural in The Villas at Disneyland Hotel
From the moment guests enter the new 12-story tower, they will be greeted by this new mural created for the Disney Vacation Club property by Lorelay Bové, associate production designer on “Encanto.”
From left to right, the mural includes characters and moments from the following animated films:
- “Peter Pan”
- “Sleeping Beauty”
- “Alice in Wonderland”
- “The Jungle Book”
- “The Lion King”
- “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”
- “Big Hero 6”
- “The Princess and the Frog”
- “Raya and the Last Dragon”
There are also several hidden Mickeys scattered throughout the mural for guests to find.
Previously-shared concept art shows what the mural will look like in the lobby space once The Villas opens.
Bové has also contributed artwork and design for other Disney films, including “Big Hero 6,” “Zootopia,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Tangled,” “Winnie the Pooh,” and “Wreck-It Ralph.”
The Villas at Disneyland Hotel opens on September 28. Reservations are available now.
The Villas at Disneyland Hotel
The Villas at Disneyland Hotel are the newest addition to the Disney Vacation Club family, and the second Disney Vacation Club property at the Disneyland Resort after The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.
The 12-story tower, currently under construction, will have 340 accommodations, including duo studios, deluxe studios, one- and two-bedroom villas, and three-bedroom grand villas. Each room is themed to a different Walt Disney Animation Studios film, from “Sleeping Beauty” to “The Princess and the Frog.” Imagineers drew inspiration from sketches, concept art, story cels, and color maps. There will also be a Steamboat Willie-themed splash pad.
A video released in March shows renderings of the new villas, which include “at-home comforts” consisting of amenities for guests to do their own laundry, cook food in a real kitchen, and enjoy a little extra private space for their family during their trip. A preview center for the new addition opened back in May.
