We got a peek at the Art of Animation food court this weekend! It’s lovely, and I can’t wait to actually eat there!
The food court is broken into several seating areas or “dining rooms” representing sections of the resort — Lion King, Cars, Finding Nemo, and Little Mermaid.
Each dining room has concept art drawings and themes from the films decorating the walls and ceiling.
And each dining area has a light fixture themed to the film as well. In the Lion King room, you’ll see a giant tree growing around the light fixture.
In the Cars Land dining room, you’ll see the bright blue sky of Carburetor County above you…punctuated by tire tracks in the clouds, of course!
The light fixture in the Little Mermaid dining room depicts both of Ariel’s Worlds — above water and below water! You’ll see her underwater Treasure Trove on the bottom, and the waves and rocks of the above-water world at the top!
The check-out is very similar to Pop Century’s and other value resort food courts.
Here’s what we got to see was on the menu! When I was there, the Smoothies and Desserts section was to my immediate left. (Editor’s Note: For guests on special diets, BabyCakes NYC is selling treats at this food court.)
I LOVE the addition of the mini cupcakes here! So fun!
Burgers look great — who’s gonna try that pastrami cheeseburger with me?!?
The Pizza pod menu is pretty standard for Disney food courts, but the cheesy pesto bread is new!
The make-your-own salad on the Kids’ Picks menu is pretty cool!
And while they only had one side of this pod menu working, I really like seeing the Mongolian Grilled meats and stir fry options. Very cool!
For those who love Mello Yello — here ya go!
I can’t wait to dine here on my next visit to Disney World! I’ll also have a walk-through video coming up soon!
