New Decor at Disney's Art of Animation Resort

This year, a total of 150 semi-trailer truckloads of decorations have been spread all over Walt Disney World Resort property, with holiday trees, lights, wreaths and garland creating some truly amazing holiday sights at our resorts – including the new decor at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort (pictured above).
