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
Concept art of the scene with the audio-animatronics Dwarfs in the mine
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?
