Disney Pic of the Week: Art of Animation

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Value resorts at Walt Disney World have many things in common including larger than life icons based on the themes found at each resort section. At the Art of Animation Resort, the Lion King section is overlooked by the King himself, Simba.

Sleeping with the Lion King at Walt Disney World

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

I know I go on and on about photographing details while at Walt Disney World. Even the resorts are full of such details. Some are subtle. Some are not.

While staying in the Lion King area of Disney's Art of Animation resort, I walked under the scene you see below taken directly from the animated move, The Lion King, of a young Simba with his pals, Timon and Pumba. What is so nice about this is the background. Instead of rows of room windows, there is a fittingly painted background.

Remember to look up while staying at a Disney resort, too. If I had not, I would have missed this cute scene. You may also have noticed the use of leading lines in the composition.
