A New Magic Kingdom

For generations, Disneyland and its sister Magic Kingdom parks have inspired countless artists and those who want to be Imagineers. (Yours truly included as a young teen.)

Here is one of the most elaborate and beautifully rendered new Magic Kingdoms. A brilliant artist, Mr. Zahta has combined elements of Disneyland, the Magic Kingdom, Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea into one incredible, but unfortunately imaginary, park. So far, from what I can see, there's even Shanghai Disneyland influences and who knows- maybe a bit of Dubai Disneyland mixed in. (Yes, you really can find art for Dubai Disneyland if you Google for it!).

Click on this for an incredibly large image and enjoy!

Eh, I don't know. In my advanced age of 33 I find that I really appreciate the value that Frontierland, New Orleans Square, and Liberty Square bring to Disney castle parks - a sense of rootedness and history is important, otherwise it becomes a giant cartoon. Hollywood Boulevard/Sunset Boulevard, World Showcase, Africa/Asia, and some of the DisneySea lands accomplish this as well - this layout is a bit too "fantasyland" for me.

I really agree with your "value" comment- and I love the historical aspects of the two Stateside parks.
This was just so wonderfully done!
Thanks for reading, Chris.
