Time after time, we hear of vacations to Orlando becoming overbearing, stressful and draining. On these vacations to the "Theme Park Capital of the World", it can be difficult to satisfy every family member's needs. Alta Oasis is a luxury resort that relieves common vacation pain points while helping families relax and decompress. By reducing planning time and avoiding chaos through cutting edge technology, Alta Oasis increases convenience, simplicity and privacy.
This project was completed in August of 2019. All artwork is my own unless stated otherwise.
Alta Oasis is themed as if a portion of Atlantis had survived its terrible fate. The descendants of Atlantis, now known as Altans, have converted their village into 30 acres of controlled, isolated environment that promotes peace and evokes exclusivity. The all inclusive resort with 61 private bungalows allows guests to escape crowds and encounter peaceful, serene environments, even during the chaos of a family’s amusement park trip.
What makes Alta different?
Our strategic location and resort layout isolates guests from crowds, promotes peace and evokes exclusivity.
Cutting edge Pegasus vtols integrated into the resort allow guests to come and go as they please.
Personal resort hosts available 24/7 can customize and enhance the guest experience.
Walk through the experience...
A few weeks before their trip, a surprise package comes in the mail for the Curtis family. They’ve received their first gift from Alta- amulet crystals that help the family access everything at the resort like open their room, make purchases at the gift shop, or access the pool. In the background, Mrs. Curtis discusses her son Kasey's Star Wars obsession with the Altan Concierge Team so that they can make this an unforgettable experience.
Once at Orlando International, the Curtis family is shuttled directly on the tarmac to the private Altan terminal. The Altan Concierge Team knows that Kasey loves Star Wars so they’ve arranged for BB-8 to greet him. A new vertical take-off and landing aircraft called Pegasus will help the family start their vacation off on the right foot by beating traffic on their way to Alta Oasis and making commuting infinitely more convenient.
As the Curtis family is flying to their destination by Pegasus Air, they get a rare and beautiful perspective of the excitement that awaits them. On the horizon they see a massive silhouette protruding the flat Floridian terrain.
As they approach Alta, they see a mountain reaching out of a tropical forest. Pegasus Air slowly descends next to a magnificent waterfall and lands on the mountain top. Suddenly the landing platform lowers into the mountain and soon the Curtis family is inside a cave looking out from behind a waterfall. Exiting Pegasus, they walk behind the waterfall, out of the cave and the Oasis is revealed. Their Altan host is waiting to greet them and take them by gondola to their private bungalow.
The Curtis family slowly weaves their way through the resort via water canal taking in all the beauty of the Oasis until finally, they arrive at their private bungalow.
The kids go crazy over their exciting room where they can play and have a space of their own. (Linework by Remi Plewe, Color by Belle Lee)
That night the Curtis family is welcomed to the resort by an amazing team of Altan cliff jumpers who tell the story of the Altan people and their origins in Atlantis.
Because they know Kasey loves Star Wars, the Altan Concierge Team has arranged tickets for the opening of Galaxy's Edge at Walt Disney World. Even though it’ll be crowded, there’s no rush because Pegasus drops them off directly at their destination where a VIP Tour guide arranged by the Altan Concierge Team is waiting. And like magic, they’re off for their day at the parks. (Linework by Remi Plewe, Color by Belle Lee)
After a few hours in the hot Orlando sun and surrounded by thousands of sweaty people, the Curtis family is ready for a break. Even though Alta is 10 miles away, they’re not worried because Pegasus can make that trip in 5 minutes compared to a 22 minute car ride. (Linework by Remi Plewe, Color by Belle Lee)
When Kasey come back, he’s shocked to see that his room has transformed into a space portal! His adventures from Galaxy's Edge can continue at the Alta Oasis. (Linework by Remi Plewe, Color by Belle Lee)
While the kids are occupied, Mr. and Mrs. Curtis decide to take advantage of the moment and request a private couples massage on their back patio. (Linework by Remi Plewe, Color by Belle Lee)
The next day the family recoups by lounging at the serene pool. Because Alta doesn’t have hundreds of rooms, they’re not bothered by swarms of tourists looking to save a lounge chair.
And on their final day, it’s hard to say goodbye but the Altan Concierge team makes it easier by arranging for a special character to give a farewell gift to Kasey. It will be a moment he shares with all his friends. (Linework by Remi Plewe, Color by Belle Lee)
This early concept sketch depicts an exclusive pirate island themed resort with the majority of guest rooms facing inward so as to maintain story immersion. Small "neighborhoods" surround the island allowing for families to reserve multiple units at a time if they are traveling with larger groups.
This concept sketch depicts a Mayan village theme where most of guests are located on a large central island. However, a more luxurious and exclusive option would allow guests to stay on a separate island which connects to its own pool and bar service. Similar to the concept above, small "neighborhoods" surround the islands allowing for families to reserve multiple units at a time if they are traveling with larger groups.
