Fantasy Land Hidden Concept Art

An early concept art of Fantasy LandSo if you are a fan of the Magic Kingdom theme park or if you have visited in the last couple of years you know that they are planning a huge expansion of the Fantasyland section of the park. They are planning to add rides and attractions that will nearly double the size of Fantasyland as we know it. Rumor has it that the new rides and attractions are going to utilized the massive courtyard to Cinderella’s Castle that is currently only occupied by a large field of grass. A large field of grass that never gets used except for special events.

Anyway this would probably be old news to you… since they have been talking about it since early 2010. In fact there are small sections of the park where you can already see them making preparations for the big renovation project. But something recently just came out in a neighboring theme park that secretly slipped under the radar. I’m not sure how long it has been there or if Disney was the one to “leak” the information, but there has been a large addition to one of the minor attractions at the Hollywood Studios theme park.

Hollywood Studios has what most would call a museum of Walt Disney’s dreams, all pieced together in a time line. It’s located in the back of the park and is known as “One Man’s Dream.” Well apparently in the last few weeks they added a whole new exhibit over night featuring all the compiled information and concept art on the new and upcoming Fantasy Land. But not only that, they went and added a whole new set of concept art that shows rides and attractions that were previously only known by name. They even have a monitor showing three dimensional images of what their construction efforts are going to look like!

It is like an in depth look or even a revealing of the new rides that will be coming out. It is really exciting, I can’t wait to get over to Hollywood Studios and check it out! I wonder why they didn’t make a big deal about this; it seems like something we would want to know!
