By far one of the things Walt Disney World Resort guests are looking forward to in this new year is the debut ofDisney’s Art of Animation Resort.
Walt Disney Imagineers are currently working on developing icon characters that can be seen throughout the themed courtyards at the resort, including Ramone from the movie “Cars.”
In this video, Imagineers Ryan Parrish and Bill Hanus explain how they transform movie characters into icons that guests will be able to interact with at the resort. The clip also features Chip Foose, the automotive designer who created the flame design for Ramone in the film, who explains how he’s applying Ramone’s flames to this icon.
