The model for the New Fantasyland expansion, which was last on display for media during the Summer to Remember press event and for Disney fans at the 2011 D23 Expo, is currently being placed into the One Man’s Dream exhibit at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Guests can view this model in all it’s detail beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, May 16, at One Man’s Dream, an exhibit that highlights some of Walt Disney’s biggest dreams come to life. Could there be a better place for the model to be on display?
Here are the first photos of the model in its new location.
It seems like Disney Channel’s Phineas and Ferb are popping up everywhere around Walt Disney World Resort these days. In addition to meet-and-greets at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the soon-to-open Disney’s Phineas and Ferb: Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure at Epcot, now guests can learn how to draw Phineas, Ferb and Agent P (among other Disney characters) as part of The Magic of Disney Animation attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The Magic of Disney Animation is an eye-opening attraction where guests of all ages discover the art of how Disney characters are created and get a hands-on opportunity to create their very own Disney character sketch. Disney artists teach guests to draw one of more than 20 beloved characters including Mickey, Stitch, Goofy – and now Phineas, Ferb and Agent P. Sessions run continuously throughout the day, with each session drawing a different character.
Disney Channel’s “Phineas and Ferb” creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” March met with some of the Disney artists from the attraction recently at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Dan and “Swampy” shared secrets from the early days of their creations and gave tips on how the characters have evolved.
Fans of the show can also enter for a chance to be one of 26 winners, plus three guests each (104 people) who will receive a Walt Disney World Resort vacation to make unforgettable summertime memories and can celebrate the end of summer and party with Phineas and Ferb! Disney Channel and Target present the “Phineas and Ferb Summer to Remember Sweepstakes.” No Purchase Necessary. For official rules/details and to enter: Disney.com/SummerToRemember.
Did you ever wonder what it takes to plan an event like Star Wars Weekends? After all, working with Wookiees, Rodians and Sith (oh my!) and scheduling their Star Wars Weekends appearances can be well…sometimes a bit “challenging.” But it’s a labor of love, as it all comes together this year for four weekends of galactic fun.
The 2012 edition of Star Wars Weekends takes place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 18-June 10. (And yes, we know that we add an extra day to the official definition of “weekend,” but when Darth Vader requests a three-day weekend, we don’t argue.)
Today, we are pleased to debut two new videos that will take you behind the scenes a bit to show some of the fun we have putting the event together. Conceptualized by the talented team at Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative Group, in partnership with Lucasfilm, Ltd., these spots will be featured on a new mobile website that just launched for Star Wars Weekends.
On your mobile device, set your course for disneytheforce.com. This mobile site will serve as a great, “on-the-go” resource for the event and feature famous Star Wars characters, visiting celebrities, event descriptions and even some special downloadable content unique to the site. And of course, these new videos will be featured so you can share them with your friends no matter where you are. The official Star Tours – The Adventures Continue Facebook page (facebook.com/StarTours) also will join the fun with news and notes about the upcoming event.
In addition, today we are debuting two of the new promotional images that have become famous through the years for their one-of-a-kind “mashups” of famous characters and icons from both Star Wars and Walt Disney World Resort. Yellow Shoes seems to keep topping themselves with concepts and we are very excited to debut these for you here.
