New Fantasyland is a Beauty

Well, that announcement is complete. So, here is the rest of the concept art for the Magic Kingdom's new Fantasyland Forest. Quite a bit of a change from what was announced before.

The circus truly has arrived in Florida. This new reworking of Mickey's Toontown Fair will be the location of the new Dueling Dumbos. It's two, two, two Dumbos in one. Should help make the lines much shorter! And Goofy, or should I say Goofini, invites guests to ride along with him on his stunt plane.

With the new addition of the Seven Dwarf's Mine Coaster- thanks to the cooler head of Tom Staggs and sons- the princess brigade has been mostly relegated to the old building of the Snow White dark ride. (As always, click on these for large images.)

We may never see the great Beauty and the Beast Audio Animatronics show first designed for Disneyland Paris, (go here to see the concept art), but at least we will see Belle's Village and the Be Our Guest Restaurant. Who can resist a chance to dine as guest of the beast?

Above the one that started it all- Ariel's Undersea Adventure. The Little Mermaid will be part of our world in 2012. Still love this attraction- long overdue!

Yes, the new Fantasyland will be a beauty. Finally, something new and wonderful for the Florida kingdom!
