^ He's so PURDY! :lol:

I'm still trying to get excited about this Fantasyland expansion. I guess I should just go in with low expectations and hopefully will be somewhat blown away. It's definitely something the park needs, but at the same time I'm kind of "meh" about it. *shrug*

^So do I.........

Wait-there are two purple shirts. One's really light and the other normal.

Just to clarify, I want the normal-purple shirt one. ;)
Hi. I'm a signature. You were looking for the guy right above me. Everyone thinks he's more important...sob...he says he's Postal or something like that.

People must really like their mail.

Late next year, Dueling Dumbos will no longer duel because of loose articles.

So this may be my shortest photo update in a good few years, but it's got some significance. The previously announced Sorcerer's of the Magic Kingdom interactive game has slowly had its elements popping up in the Magic Kingdom. And more recently, they've arrived in larger numbers. About a week ago, I stopped into the park to check on this project's progress along with the other changes being made new New Fantasyland.
DSC09131.JPG
The old ToonTown tents have been stripped to the frame to be prepared for their new purposes.
DSC09140.JPG
The Little Mermaid's facade continues to gain detail as it grows outward. It supposedly received its clam mobiles this week.
DSC09143.JPG
The Enchanted Grove, located between Cosmic Ray's and the Mad Tea Party attraction recently changed its name to the Cheshire Cafe to better reflect its surroundings.
DSC09150.JPG
The queue tent for Dueling Dumbos awaits its thematic overlay which won't likely come until the rest of the queue area is ready to be topped off as well.
DSC09151.JPG
An overview of the Storybook Circus/Little Mermaid section of New Fantasyland.
DSC09157.JPG
Beast's castle has long been completed, but the snowy peaks surrounding it continue to receive new paint.
DSC09159.JPG
The forced perspective effect is starting to work.
DSC09164.JPG
Maurice's Cottage is quickly gaining facade detail as well.
DSC09165.JPG
While the chimney isn't curvy like Potter's, it does look nice.
DSC09174.JPG
Sorcerer's of the Magic Kingdom interactive locations have been installed in some of the park's less visited areas.
DSC09175.JPG
Each has "keyhole," a screen (hidden here behind the curtains) and a speaker (embedded in the white box).
DSC09176.JPG
The keyhole is the RFID reader that will allow guests to interact with the on screen villains they face.
DSC09178.JPG
This door near the tunnel between Adventureland and Frontierland also features a new set of interactive elements.
DSC09182.JPG
To the left of the recently re-opened Frontierland Shooting Gallery is this interactive station.
DSC09183.JPG
The details around the station tie into existing Frontierland lore.
DSC09185.JPG
More details...
DSC09186.JPG
The key to your adventure...

See what I did there?
DSC09188.JPG
The Frontierland Shooting Gallery has finally reopened after a lengthy refurbishment.
DSC09190.JPG
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad recently had the railroad cross ties removed from the track, leaving a very bare looking railway.
DSC09200.JPG
Over by Pirates of the Caribbean, this window has finally been unveiled despite being on of the first elements to be installed in the park.
DSC09202.JPG
Seen already in the play-testing, the black tiles are translucent, allowing for a video screen behind it to display the villains as if they were seen through a magical portal.
DSC09205.JPG
The Sunshine Tree Terrace facade is currently being refurbished while the establishment remains open. Several new interactive elements have already been installed in the venue's immediate area, but more are rumored to debut when the scrims come down.
DSC09208.JPG
This Sorcerer's booth in Adventureland recently sprung up.
DSC09209.JPG
The screen for this station will be projection based, and will likely utilize the physical set pieces to tie into the video action.
DSC09215.JPG
And one last window in Adventureland (walking towards Main Street USA) is ready.

Mainstreet USA is also expected to have several stations installed soon for this new interactive game.

If this comes off anything like Kim Possible, it'll be awesome.

My parents were just down at WDW last week, and I totally forgot to ask them what they thought of the upcoming changes.....d'oh!
