We know New Fantasyland can’t arrive fast enough and luckily Casey Jr. knows that too! Because before you can call up the infamous tune, yup that one, the Casey Jr. Splash ‘n’ Soak Station will be open. Ok so perhaps it might be a little while longer than that, as the expected official opening for Casey isn’t until July 2012 but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a peek and preview the experience. So join us in our latest New Fantasyland construction update series as we take you all around New Fantasyland for incredible looks at the amazing adventures that are being built right before our eyes at the Magic Kingdom.
On our way to visit Casey Jr. in Storybook Circus…
Not really sure what this walled off area is being used for at the moment. Perhaps a staging area for some of the ongoing work in Storybook Circus.
“Cast Members Only” given the Storybook Circus treatment.
Storybook Circus is slowly but steadily coming together…
Looks like the circus is definitely in town now!
Camels and Giraffes…oh my!
It is all starting to make sense but no doubt that this area is going to look best at night!
Check out the new string of blue and white bulbs that now line the previous string of lamps…
Well look what we have here…
Something tells me this Casey Jr. Splash ‘n’ Soak Station is going to be all sorts of simple fun.
“71″ A nice tribute to the Magic Kingdom’s opening date.
Seems like that bit of Little Mermaid rock work might serve double duty as a bit of a backdrop for Storybook Circus as well…
It’s hard to get a feel for this area right now but there is still a ton of work to be done. The colors of the tents are great though.
Wow! Casey Jr!
Cue the incredibly catchy theme song! Good luck getting it out of your head now :)
Nothing says fun like monkeys.
Now the blue lighting on top of the New Fantasyland Train Station makes sense. It always looked cool but now I see how it ties into the other lighting in the area of the roundhouse.
Looks like Dumbo the Flying Elephant’s second spinner installation is well underway.
This rock work has seen a lot of progress since our last update.
The colors, shapes and textures that are given to the concrete really make this special.
I love this picture because you can begin to get a sense of the stature that Beast’s Castle takes on from certain forced perspectives.
Seven Dwarfs Mine Coaster!
The brown steel supports are for the track and the other steel structures will support the mountain.
