Today we take a look at a recent image that popped up yesterday on Stitch Kingdom. As well as taking a look at the concept art released at the Expo, and the recently “released” 3D Model of the New Fantasyland Expansion in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
Lets start with an image that we all know, the blueprint layout that was “leaked” in July 2009. (Originally released by Stitch Kingdom as well)
Now lets take a look at the concept art released at the expo, September 2009.
Released around a month later (October/November 2009), ProgressCityUSA has this picture, with subtle differences (a sharper image of Cinderellla’s Chateau and the Little Mermaid Facade):
Now lets take a look at the most recent arrival to our New Fantasyland Expansion, the 3D Model. (Once again brought to you by Stitch Kingdom) Be sure to check out the link and you can see the MUCH MUCH bigger picture.
Since we have taken a look at everything as one, lets inspect each individual area of the new “Fantasy Forest” Fantasyland expansion.
Lets begin with exiting out of the Castle, and where the Dumbo attraction currently is, are the new Castle Walls. These pieces are KEY to the story that Imagineering is going to try to tell with this new expansion, without them, the story is ruined.
Moving North, the Beauty and the Beast area consists of three separate “mini-areas”, taking up the place of currently Ariel’s Grotto, and part of backstage.
Taking place in the 100 Acre Wood play area, the Cinderella area is a meet and greet in her chateau.
Finally, we take a brief look at the attraction formally known as the Barnstormer. No one knows exactly what will happen with this attraction, but it is for sure that it will be staying, but as what? The blueprint below has a “Cheese Coaster” in the Circus land area.
Many fans think it will either be a Snow White Mine Car themed attraction, but it won’t connect as it will be far from the really “foresty” area. Others seem to think that since Casey Jr. is missing from the Circus land, that he will have a place on this newly redone attraction. Only time will tell.
And a very Special Thanks to Stitch Kingdom for the information and permission
