Sneak Peek of Whimsical Murals at Disney’s Riviera Resort
We are only mere months away from the opening of Disney World’s newest Deluxe Villa property – Disney’s Riviera Resort. As we inch ever closer, Disney continues to share some exciting details about all of the whimsical features going into making your stay here truly magical. Today, we are jazzed to share with you a sneak peek at two of the stunning mosaic murals you’ll find in a walkway tunnel at the Riviera!
Let’s take a look:
Like most of the elements you’ll find at Disney’s Riviera Resort, the murals will showcase Disney’s retelling of classic European fairy tales. The murals draw their inspiration from original stories included in the collection of over 300 books that Walt sent back to his California studio while traveling through Europe in the 1930s. Add to this the use of mosaics celebrating the beauty of the art style, materials and craftsmanship and you have an incredible masterpiece.
Both mosaics murals will be massive installations that are recessed into the walkway tunnels and will span across an arched ceiling. Both mosaics will feature their own unique story set along the tunnel but will join at the top by a shared mosaic sky that stretches an impressive 20 feet in the air!
As you can see from both of the images we shared above one of the mosaics will feature Peter Pan, Wendy, Michael and John flying off to Neverland. Over half a million hand-cut tiles were laid by hand to create this incredible work of art!
