Hey DFB friends! Hope you’re ready for another what’s new at Disney’s Skyliner Resorts!
We visited all of the resorts along the newest form of Disney transportation, which includes Disney’s Art of Animation, Pop Century, Caribbean Beach, and Riviera! We’ve got plenty of updates to share today, so let’s jump in.
Disney’s Art of Animation Merchandise Update
Ink & Paint
Disney’s latest film Raya and the Last Dragon will be in theaters and on Disney+ SO soon! Because of that, we’ve seen merchandise from the upcoming movie all over Disney World. Now the merch has made its way to Ink & Paint at Disney’s Art of Animation!
There are lots of goodies to choose from like t-shirts, figurines…
….swords, and plushes! Just look at how adorable little Tuk Tuk is!
Disney’s Art of Animation Construction Update
Big Blue Pool
The Big Blue Pool is currently under refurbishment! The pool remains drained, and honestly, it’s a little sad to see it without water.
This refurb is supposed to last through early April, so hopefully we’ll get to swim with Nemo and friends again soon!
In the meantime, the Flippin’ Fins Pool, and the Cozy Cone Pool are open to all guests at the resort.
Another refurbishment is going on near the entrance of the building! One of the most iconic parts of Art of Animation is seeing the 4 giant character pages, but now they are fully blank!
This is with the exception of Simba who is still holding out. Hang in there buddy!
It’s unclear exactly what Disney is doing with these character pages at the moment, but we miss Ariel, Lightning McQueen, and Nemo!
Disney’s Pop Century Construction Update
Hippy Dippy Pool
Another Disney World pool is under refurbishment, and it’s fully drained just like at Art of Animation.
The Hippy Dippy Pool in the 70s section of the resort is supposed to reopen in early March and is currently getting some regular maintenance done.
The other pools at Pop Century are still open to all guests of that resort!
Compared to our last visit, the Pop sign that greets guests at the entrance looks shiny and new!
Looks like they added a “pop” of color since it looks brighter and you can’t see the lines that were there previously.
It didn’t change much, but it looks beautiful!
Riviera Merchandise Update
Recently the latest Disney Dooney and Bourke collection dropped in Disney World, and it features none other than the Disney Skyliner!
We’ve seen it around the parks and online, but now you can snag the entire collection at La Boutique in Disney’s Riviera Resort.
That’s all we’ve got today for updates at the Skyliner Resorts! We hope you enjoyed following along and learning about the latest updates at these resorts. We’ll be in the parks and on the Skyliner again soon, so stay tuned to DFB for more updates!
