Art of Animation Fun Facts!

I found some great fun facts about the upcoming Art of Animation Resort! Is anyone excited about the new opening dates?

  • More than 800 construction jobs were created, and at full operation it will create 750 resort hotel jobs
  • The Nemo pool has 310,000 gallons and is the largest pool on Disney property, not counting water parks
  • If you combined all the swimming pools, you could park 125 cars inside the pools
  • Its 27 acres of landscaping and irrigation is the equivalent of twenty football fields.
  • With 227,000 lineal feet of carpet could stretch from downtown Orlando to Kennedy Space Center.
  • There are over 529,000 square feet of ceramic tiles on the project, enough to cover a standard two-lane road four miles long
  • If you stacked up all the doors at the resort, they would be as tall as the Empire State Building
  • There's enough metal railing to wrap around the new Amway Center eight times
  • The project used 23,000 gallons of paint, which is enough to fill a typical backyard swimming pool
  • There are over 2,300 parking spaces within the project, which is approximately the number of players in the NFL
