An Aerial Look at the New Fantasyland Progress – February 2012

Posted on February 14, 2012

Courtesy of Scott Keating and, we once again have some fantastic aerial photos of Fantasyland to share with you:

The foundations for the Seven Dwarves Mine Train are now in place, the old Dumbo is now history, and it looks like an extension of the Mermaid rock-work is about to begin to make the show building not visible from Storybook Circus

The queue for Enchanted Tales with Belle seems further along than any other project, so it’s possible that may open first

Prince Eric’s castle is looking good, but the rest of the facade is far from finished

Dumbo and the Fantasyland Station are nearing completion, meanwhile, the Barnstormer is complete with the exception of some landscaping and queue decorations. The Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak area is still nowhere to be found.

Added Bonus: Here’s a look at the on-going Big Thunder Mountain refurbishment

    Looking like real progress is being made.  This Fantasyland addition will really add to the park.  The only complaint I have is we lost one ride and are only getting two in the new additions – Ariel’s Ride and the Dwarf’s Mine.  Dumbo and the Barnstormer/Great Goofini are being rethemed.  Belle will be an interesting attraction as will the Beast’s Castle, but they are not rides.  Additionally, we have a new princess meet and greet attraction where Snow White Adventures was.  Net gain – one ride. 

    What would add to this improved Fantasyland would be a new Peter Pan Ride, situated right behind Ariel’s Little Mermaid Ride and Belle’s Village. It could be a flight to and around Neverland using technology currently in use at Soar’in. That would be a super ride. Where Peter Pan is currently, bring back Mr. Toad or put in Disneyland’s Pinnochio.
