Mufasa, Simba’s father in Disney’s “The Lion King,” stands majestically over the courtyard of the new Lion King wing at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. The new wing, opening Aug. 10, celebrates the journey of Simba, with larger-than-life landscapes and theming that reflect playful and poignant scenes from the Academy Award-winning animated film. Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, a value property featuring family suites, is located at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. (Matt Stroshane, photographer)
