This is our archives of our bi-monthly edition of Fantasyland Forest Friday, keeping you up-to-date on the latest happenings over in the Fantasyland area that is being made over into the “Fantasyland Forest”.
Past Fantasyland Forest “Fridays” for you to keep track of the progress:
As with the last couple of Fantasyland Expansion postings there hasn’t been much news in this realm, though we do have some pictures of the expansion. First, we have our general construction shots, and obligatory crane shots.
The Little Mermaid attraction building is looking great, they are beginning to wall off the queue area of the attraction.
The Beauty and the Beast area is taking shape as well, they’ve added another floor to the structure.
The Many Adventure of Winnie the Pooh re-opened on Monday, kind of. The attraction was plagued with spurts of working on Monday, but on Tuesday it was fully operational. From Monday until Thursday the attraction used its FastPass entrance as the queue for the attraction because the interactive portion of the queue for this attraction was still getting the finishing touches, but it opened on Friday. For more information and pictures from the recently opened queue, be sure to visit WDW News Today for Banks Lee’s report.
Portion of the outdoor queue area for the attraction still being worked on. (at time of shot, Thursday)
Last week, the Mad Tea Party reopened with a new color scheme on the roof, sadly no glass roof.
Finally, lets take a trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the recently reopened One Man’s Dream, where we have some ‘previews’ of the Fantasyland expansion, a glass case is dedicated to the expansion, it wouldn’t surprise me if the area that reopens soon, now titled The Legacy Continues, will feature more concept art.
Though nothing in this case is new for us to see, it does give us great hope that this will be updated, similar to the Blue Sky Cellar in Disney California Adventure.
That’s it for now, be sure to stay tuned for more updates throughout the months.
