This Beautiful Mosaic at Disney’s Riviera Resort Pays Homage to a Modern Classic

The tunnel to the Skyliner station at Disney’s Riviera Resort features two mosaics inspired by Disney’s vast catalog of fairy tale films. The first, which we’ve covered previously, depicts the magical world of Neverland from Peter Pan. Now we’ve gotten our first look at the second magical mosaic!

Can you guess what Disney film inspired this little wonder?

If you guessed Tangled, you’re absolutely right!

Disney Parks Blog shares that this masterpiece features over a million hand-cut tiles to depict the breathtaking image of lanterns floating over the Kingdom of Corona. That’s nearly double the amount seen in the Peter Pan mural, and this is only part of the picture.

The final piece rises over twenty feet in the air and depicts Rapunzel’s tower as it gazes longingly at the festival in distant Corona. Both this and the Peter Pan mural were inspired by the magic of flight; an appropriate choice, considering the role the Skyliner will play when the Riviera Resort opens on December 16!
