Hey, folks! We’re back with another roundup of What’s New at Disney’s Art of Animation and Pop Century Resorts!
This is where we take you on a virtual walk around Disney World to spot all the latest food, construction, and merch we’ve spotted this week!
With all that’s been “poppin” at these two happenin’ Disney World Resorts, there’s much to discuss, so let’s get started!
Construction Updates at Disney’s Pop Century Resort
We noticed a few “No Parking” signs at the security point as we made our approach to Disney’s Pop Century. Since Disney’s Skyliner opened, lots of parkgoers have been parking at Pop Century and Art of Animation, limiting the number of spots that are available to the guests staying at either of the resorts. We noticed these signs were at Disney’s Art of Animation, as well!
We also spotted this cute Painting with a Pop! activity that Disney’s Pop Century will be hosting on October 25th. Guests will have the opportunity to create their very own spooky masterpiece of Cinderella’s Castle and lots of playful-looking pumpkins!
The event costs $35 per person and will take place from 1 PM-3 PM in the Everything Pop Food Court!
Food Updates at Disney’s Pop Century Resort
Next, we’re hitting up the food court to see what changes we can spot at Everything Pop!
We noticed they’ve swapped out their previous Vegetable Sandwich for a Roasted Vegetable Sandwich and have added Plant-based Waffles to their menu! Thankfully our beloved Turkey Sandwich is still being offered!
Also, the Plant-based Burger now says Plant-based BBQ Burger.
We could really go for one of those right about now — or their Classic Cheeseburger which comes with a tasty garlic aioli!
Petals Pool Bar
Time to dip our toes in the Hippy Dippy Pool and see what’s shakin’ over at Petals!
It looks like Copa Di Vino has replaced the bar’s former Woodbridge wine offerings, but everything else appears to be unchanged! We wonder if the Art of Animation’s pool bar has also made the switch!
Let’s head over to Disney’s Art of Animation now, and see what they’ve been up to!
Construction Update at Art of Animation Resort
We spotted even more new signage (but Disney’s Art of Animation sign is still the best!)
We did thoroughly enjoy seeing this “sometimes Skyliners breakdown” sign near the Skyliner Station bathroom, though!
After the Skyliner collision occurred on October 5th, we can see how Disney would want to keep guests from worrying if their gondola pauses momentarily!
Merchandise Update at Disney’s Art of Animation
We spotted this super sweet new Mickey and Minnie Kissing Hoodie at Art of Animation’s Ink and Paint Shop! Its distressed look would look great with a pair of jeans…or leggings, if we’re being honest!
And check out the adorable pink Walt Disney World sleeve detail! We can’t wait to wear this to the parks on a chilly night with our sweeties!
The Minnie and Mickey Hoodie can be yours for $49.99!
Food Update at Disney’s Art of Animation
All that shopping really worked up our appetites! Time to hit up Landscape of Flavors!
Landscape of Flavors
We love the Art of Animation’s food court which features backgrounds of some of our favorite Disney and Pixar movies — as well as some tasty bites!
Landscape of Flavors has removed from its gelato and coffee counter the Super Green Energy Juice, Smoothie Bowl, Strawberry Banana Smoothie, and Italian Float!
The menu is looking pretty bare over there, so hopefully, they’ll have more options soon! We also noticed the Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars had been removed from the menu, but a Cast Member confirmed that they’re still available!
We also saw that Landscapes of Flavors had removed the Asian Chicken Bowl from its salad and sandwich section…
…while they’ve changed the Veggie Seitan Scramble to a Chipotle Seitan Scramble. Don’t worry — it appears only the name has changed, and not the actual item!
Plus it appears the Plant-based Burger is now called going by “Cheddar” Brioche Burger. Again, it appears the dish has remained the same and only the moniker is different.
That’s it for Landspace of Flavors! Time to head off to the Art of Animation’s pool bar — The Dropoff!
We also noticed they now have soft serve ice cream including chocolate, vanilla or swirl! Good to know after taking a dip in the Big Blue Pool!
Well, friends, that’s all for this edition of What’s New at Disney’s Art of Animation and Pop Century Resorts — until next time! We’ll be back soon with more construction, merchandise, and food updates for ya real soon!
