Last night the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, Florida Theatrical Association and Broadway Across America announced the roster of shows for the FAIRWINDS Broadway in Orlando 2016/2017 season.
In addition to the previously announced three-week engagement of the blockbuster Wicked, the line-up includes seven other acclaimed and award-winning productions and musicals.
Here is the complete roster of 2016/2017 shows coming to the Dr. Phillips Center:
Opening in segments, Disney’s Art of Animation finally opened its fourth and final wing this last weekend.
This section is themed with characters and scenes from the classic Disney film, The Little Mermaid.
Like the previous three wings – themed to Finding Nemo, Cars and The Lion King – large displays outside recreate moments from the movie. These include multi-story tall dioramas featuring Ariel, King Triton, Ursula, and (my personal favorite) Sebastian.
What is different, however, is that rooms in this wing of the resort are standard rooms, not the family suites found in the other three wings. The rooms are decorated with a sea theme, including seashell headboards and a blue and green color scheme.
This section of the resort also has the Flippin’ Fins pool, one of three on property.
Rates for rooms in The Little Mermaid wing start at $94.
Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is adjacent to Disney’s Pop Century Resort.

Construction continues in the Fantasyland area of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. But yesterday, the park tweeted out this photo of Prince Eric’s Castle from the Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid attraction.
