Simba’s journey is celebrated in The Lion King area of the Art of Animation Resort. With landscape and theming that reflect both playful and poignant scenes from the Academy Award-winning Disney animated film The Lion King. Among the landscapes depicted from the movie, the elephant graveyard is both a poignant scene and a playground.

At 10’ x 25’, the imposing prehistoric elephant bones emerge from a stone cliff. Constructed of stainless steel clad with composite and finished with scenic paint, the bones demonstrate the successful integration of digitized surfaces combined with hand carved detail and skilled scenic paint to achieve the level of detail required for the aged look.
