International Drive is one of the most high traffic destinations with guests flocking to Walt Disney World year-round. Well, Disney has decided to take advantage of the heavy traffic by installing a gargantuan, ribbon-like art display for all to see!
As reported by Orlando Business Journal: “Disney (NYSE: DIS) is seeking Orange County approvals to build a gargantuan, ribbon-like art display at 8050 International Drive on the Hollywood Plaza garage, Orange County records show. The entertainment giant is partnering with Japan-based Mitsubishi to install and maintain the dynamic art, which will face Orlando’s main artery Interstate 4 and look north toward downtown.”
InsideTheMagic reports: “If you are wondering where the giant installation will go, on International Drive, there is a nightclub called Mango’s Tropical Café which also holds a massive parking garage for Guests. So it seems that that will be the location of the “art installation”. The new display will likely take around one year to construct and will be ready at some point in 2022.”
We’re looking forward to this one! Our kiddos try to spot each and every billboard possible on our way into the parks, so we’re sure this huge one will wow them. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more about Disney’s art display project.
