What would you do with One More Disney Day? We here at Da Mouse would help Disney in any way we can to help New Fantasyland open sooner. But since we’d need more than pixie dust to make that dream come true we’ve gone ahead and done the next best thing. Da Mouse is kicking off our One More Disney Day coverage with a massive New Fantasyland Update that takes you right into the almost finished Storybook Circus and of course the rest of the amazing New Fantasyland expansion. So what are you waiting for, let’s get this 24 hour leap year celebration going in New Fantasyland style.
Dumbo’s Big Top Tent’s Flags wave proudly in the breeze. (Make sure you click on the High-Res photos or ya might miss something…)
Dumbo/Storybook Circus Lamp Posts
Well it won’t be long before Prince Eric’s Castle is complete. By the way the other half of the spire is on the ground waiting to be lifted into place. More on that later :)
The “tent” overhang on Dumbo the Flying Elephant looks quite nice.
Storybook Circus almost ready to open for business.
Look at all the cool lamp posts.
We are serious, look how great they look.
Look at the “stone” work on the planters…
This is the Storybook Circus Lamp Post Update Edition ;)
But perhaps the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is more your thing? Well we’ve got that too :)
Oh Beautiful New Fantasyland!
Remember the other half of the spire we mentioned earlier. Well I spy it in the bottom left corner of this image. Do you see it too?
Gaston’s Tavern looks ready to serve anything but..er…beer ;) (Is that like triple meaning? I think so)
We’ll get ya another update later this week if the rest of the spire goes up.
Anybody know what that tent is for?
Is that a new tent cover we see?
Here is the construction on Journey of the Little Mermaid’s facade that will transition to Storybook Circus.
Bonjour! to Belle’s village…
Beast’s Castle for you New Fantasyland rookies, come on, we know you are out there.
Reminder: Clicking on High-Res Photos is your friend.
And you thought trapeze artists were dare-devils?
This tent is just teasing us now.
Lots of new paint and roofing on Maurice’s cottage.
Did someone order blinking Air Race Flag lights! Oh yeah! …and they are totally awesome.
This might be the waterfall area near Beast’s Castle…
A bright-colored Barnstormer entrance sign. Loving the colorful Storybook Circus set against the darker tones of the nearby buildings and planters and trees.
What’s left of Dumbo ;)
And it’s a magic wall, look how it transforms into a beautiful wall out of thin air.
Pretty soon it will be ready for lights!
New Fantasyland Train Station here we come!
Anybody have a clue as to what those giant wood poles are for?
This is going to be a well lit train station!
Also equipped with Florida heat repellant fans…
Now isn’t this fancy?
A Canon and Barnstormer Light poles…
Flying pants and Goofy sign.
Closer look at the canon, a famous act in every Circus.
Poor Goofy never stood a chance.
Barnstormer looking mighty ready to open…
Wheel of Peril, sounds dangerous…where can we take a spin?
So long for now Storybook Circus…
