Of all the places for it to surface, some never-before-seen concept art from New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom has surfaced ion the new “Realms of Fantasy” exhibit at the Disney Gallery in Disneyland Park. Thanks to our sister site Disneyland News Today for the following photos from the Disneyland Resort:

These two pictures are never-before-seen conceopt art of the exterior of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train coming to New Fantasyland in 2014

Here is the concept art we have seen thus far: The finale scene and the previously released exterior concept art

Interestingly enough, you can purchase the concept art through Art on Demand

Now for some “New Fantasyland that never was”… An Alice in Wonderland area was envisioned at one point, including a new entrance to Fantasyland and a new fancy roof for the Mad Tea Party

You can see the Barnstormer in the background, perhaps re-themed to the Caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland. Also, notice guests sitting and dining in large tea cups.

In addition, two new pieces of Mine Train concept art are being shared on the construction walls in New Fantasyland:

Both of these pieces show the queue

You can see guests playing with an interactive element in the mine portion of the queue

So, what do you think of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and the rejected Alice In Wonderland section of New Fantasyland?

    I would have LOVED this! I wished ever since it was announced they would have a Wonderland area, I had no idea they actually thought about it! They could at least do the new entryway and add new elements around the Mad Tea Party too

    I would love to see them do an Oz themed area. I know they are doing something special for the Flower & Garden festival, but there is so much they could do. Imagine going from Oz to Wonderland.
