Disney’s Riviera Resort, the newest resort and Disney Vacation Club property coming to Walt Disney World, opens in just a few days and the excitement is building as all of the finishing touches and details are coming into place.
Disney previously gave us a first look at a walkway tunnel at Disney’s Riviera Resort that features two spectacular mosaic murals. In that earlier sneak peek, we revealed that the magical scene of one mural is London at night, with Peter Pan, Wendy, Michael and John flying off to Never Land.
Today, the second mural that depicts Rapunzel’s floating lantern scene from “Tangled” has also been revealed.
Both of the mosaics – Rapunzel’s floating lantern scene and Peter Pan soaring over the London sky – celebrate flight. So it’s no coincidence that this tunnel walkway leads to the Disney Skyliner station at Disney’s Riviera Resort, where guests can step aboard and glide across the sky by aerial gondola to destinations across Walt Disney World.
More than 1 million hand-cut tiles were laid by hand to create this stunning work of art that rises 20 feet in the air and is joined at the ceiling by a shared mosaic sky.
Disney’s Riviera Resort is under construction now and projected to open Dec. 16, 2019.
