Long lost Imagineering projects always fascinate me- and this incredible piece of concept art for the never-built Discovery Bay is darn near top of the list when it comes to abandoned attractions for Disneyland.
Soon to be Disney Legend Tony Baxter created this land to showcase a variety of thrilling new adventures. Island at the Top of the World was the newest film from Disney at the time. It was ambitious and flawed, a complete flop. Guess where this left Tony's pet project?
Now relegated to the heap of artwork left behind- and right into the annals of projects that would never come to pass in their original form. Pieces would find its way into Disneyland Paris, however. Take a closer look by clicking on the top image.
