Disney’s Riviera Resort is set to open at Walt Disney World Resort later this year. The new resort has a European theme, but done in a way that only Disney Imagineering can create. Per Disney Parks Blog, ” Drawing inspiration from the Mediterranean region’s art history, the collection celebrates a unique blend of Disney characters and icons, European storytelling, and the fine art stylings of master artists who found inspiration along the Riviera during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.” We have a look at some of the art that was created exclusively for the resort to check out below!
Enjoy this up close reveal of these signature pieces created exclusively for the resort:
“Still Life with Teapot” – Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, Chip and Cogsworth from “Beauty and the Beast” (1991)
“During the early-20th-century, artists along the Riviera were exploring ways to make still life objects come to life on a flat canvas. Artists would first break the objects into individual shapes and forms, then accentuate each object with strong outlines.”
“Girl with Lanterns” – Panel showcasing Rapunzel from “Tangled” (2010)
“The dramatic hues of sunset inspired Disney artists in painting Rapunzel and Pascal as they watch the glowing lanterns illuminate the evening sky, creating a delightful pattern of shape and color.”
“The Seaside Nap” – Mickey Mouse and Pluto
“Harkening back to Disney’s cartoon origins, this coastal Riviera scene is styled to reflect the vintage characteristics of early black and white cartoon art.”
Disney’s Riviera Resort is currently expected to open to guests starting on December 16th, 2019. Reservations are already available, so you can start booking yours! (You can also message me for help!)
