Pouncing Through the Elephant Graveyard

Filed in: Walt Disney World Resort Hotels

Beneath the watchful eyes of Banzai, Shenzi and Ed, the comical hyenas in Disney’s “The Lion King,” guests channel their inner lion cub while visiting the elephant graveyard in the Lion King courtyard at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. The new Lion King 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. (Gene Duncan, photographer)
