Next time you visit the Art of Animation Resort, check out the light poles. Throughout the resort there are 71 themed light poles. Each “wood” pole is wrapped in resin soaked fabric and then covered in a 2-part epoxy, hand imprinted with the wood texture and scenic painted. We knew we had the theming right the day we spotted a carpenter bee attempting to bore into the last pole we were finishing in the shop.
Some other interesting features of the light poles: In the Finding Nemo courtyard, the light poles have bubbles on top and movable fixtures to direct light. At The Little Mermaid courtyard pool area, the poles are topped with large crow nests which creatively theme the eight light fixtures.
