A Sculpture Fit for a King

Disney Imagineer Joni Van Buren sculpts a model of King Triton from Disney’s animated classic “The Little Mermaid.” King Triton, in his final form, will be 35-feet-tall and tower over guests at Disney Parks newest resort hotel, “Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.” The new resort at Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. will feature themed building exteriors and room interiors that bring to life famous Disney and Disney-Pixar animated feature films like “The Lion King,” “Cars,” “Finding Nemo” and “The Little Mermaid.” Disney’s Art of Animation Resort opens in phases beginning in May 2012.
