Disney’s Art of Animation Resort in Walt Disney World is easily one of the most fun hotels at the parks for fans of animation. The entrance, hallways, pool, and just about every nook and cranny are packed from floor-to-ceiling with sketches and artwork from Disney and Pixar artists who helped create many of your favorite characters.

Recently, Pete Docter (Inside Out Director), Jerome Ranft (Sculptor), and Jay Ward (Cars Guardian) were on hand to add their signatures to the now infamous Story Chandelier.

Watch as the trio signs the panels, including a great moment as Jerome proudly signed an image of a storyboard that his brother (Joe Ranft) sketched years ago (prior to his passing). Just a few short months ago, Toy Story 4 co-director, Josh Cooley was also on hand to add his signature to the chandelier as well.
