Super-sized Fun at Disney

Super-sized like a cartoon, this moderately priced 5000 room resort is themed around sports, music and movies. The challenge was how to abstract the landscape with the heavily themed architecture. Frederick Halback* was responsible for the site design including hardscape, site features, plantings and irrigation. The result is an iconic entertainment landscape that playfully engages the guest in each themed courtyard.
