WDWNT’s diligent reporter Adam Roth was on the scene at Walt Disney World this weekend, visiting Epcot and the Magic Kingdom. Adam took a number of newsworthy photos on his trip, so let’s take a look at what’s new and exciting: Art of disney at Epcot recently was refurbished and is now open once again, now featuring the Castle Collection merchandise Looks like they just cleaned up the place a bit They did rearrange some shelves Work continues to prepare a new entrance at the Seas with Nemo and Friends This new wave awning replaces the plain umbrellas that had been here Work continues on a new entrance, presumed to be a new queue for Turtle Talk with Crush Work [...]

Walt Disney World announced via the Disney Parks Blog the details of what exactly will be inside Pete’s Silly Sideshow in Storybook Circus, part of New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom. Back at the D23 Expo, Imagineers told us at the very least it would be a meet and greet for Goofy, but it has now been confirmed that Minnie, Daisy, and Donald will be joining him under the big top at the circus. Instead of just appearing in their normal apparel, the rest of the Fab 5 will get into the spirit of the Storybook Circus dressed as sideshow acts: The Great Goofini, The Astounding Donaldo (snake charmer), Minnie Magnifique (animal trainer), and Madame Daisy Fortuna (fortuneteller). Exterior concept [...]

Scott Keating was once again nice enough to provide some aerial shots of the current New Fantasyland construction site after a few month absence, so let’s see all that has changed: As you can see, everything but the Mine Train is nearing completion If there was any doubts that the Skyway Station was going to become a Tangled meet-and-greet, the appearance of a tower frame has just about confirmed it… The framework for Mine Train looks to be just about complete The castle walls are taking shape Just the three tent-like structures left to go in Storybook Circus, we expect these to open in the Fall/Winter A look at Mine Train As you can see, the beauty and the Beast [...]

What’s the latest on the New Fantasyland project at the Magic Kingdom?

The interactive queue for Dumbo was one of the most interesting parts of the New Fantasyland announcement when it was made back in September 2009. Well, we’re finally getting a look inside: Upon entering the queue, guests will get a pager (no different from waiting for a table at your local T.G.I.Friday’s) that looks like a Circus ticket. While waiting for their pager to go off and their turn to ride, parents can sit and relax in the air-conditioning while the kids play under the big-top in a themed playground seemingly straight out of the Dumbo film. The Dumbo interactive queue opens along with the second Dumbo spinner and the Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station in July.

We’ll take a look at New Fantasyland, Star Wars Weekends preparation, and more from around the Vacation Kingdom of the World, so let’s get started: The Main Street Bakery is still behind tarps (I’m starting to think this has something to do with Starbucks moving in) Facade work continues on the Confectionary and Chapeau The temporary Tangled meet and greet rolls on Work was completed on the Main Street bridge Work on the Princess Merida meet and greet has been completed A nearby cart has Brave merchandise I find it hard to [...]
