Of course!

I totally forgot about this section's Meet & Greet area!

Always took it for granted with whatever 'theme' it was
currently in, with the rest of "Mickey's ____________ ".

Artwork looks great. And interesting that Mickey is
left out of this set-up. Easier for his strolling around,
as Head RingMouse-ter, I bet. :wink:

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2012/08/all-in-the-details-imagineers-add-character-to-belles-village-in-new-fantasyland-at-magic-kingdom-park/

This week, our “All in the Details” post is taking on a video twist thanks to our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering, who recently installed the centerpiece of Belle’s Village – an elaborate bronze statue of Gaston and his sidekick, Lefou.


As Imagineers Ted Robledo and Chris Kelly explain here, the statue’s design of Gaston and Lefou juggling leaky barrels and mugs was inspired by both Gaston’s boisterous temperament and the fountain Belle visits early in the film as she is reading. Ted and Chris also walk us through the detailed process it takes to create such an elaborate bronze statue – from building a clay maquette to choosing specific shades of bronze for the piece.

For reference, the fountain sits in the center of Belle’s Village in New Fantasyland. The building that appears behind the fountain is Gaston’s Tavern, while the structure directly across is Bonjour! Village Gifts.

And as we shared last week, each of these experiences will grand open December 6 (with general previews beginning November 19).

I was at MK yesterday, and grabbed some Fantasyland photos. I forgot to bring a real camera, though, so we're stuck with iPhone4 blurryphotos.... :?r

Apologies about the blur, and poor lighting...it was sunset, so not ideal.

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2012/08/new-signature-images-released-of-new-fantasyland-at-magic-kingdom-park/

We sure have a treat today for those of you who just can’t get enough of New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park. New signature images have just been released that I think sure put the “fantasy” into New Fantasyland.

nfp993999LARGE.jpg

This first signature image shows a view of New Fantasyland in detail from the very top turret of Cinderella’s Castle. The landscape stretches from Maurice’s Cottage on the left, all the way to the colorful Storybook Circus on the right.

nfp110129LARGE.jpg

Another photo depicts Belle enjoying a book right outside Maurice’s Cottage, with Beast’s Castle high up on the mountains in the background. Anyone catch the Hidden Mickey in this pic?

npf220100LARGE.jpg

Here, Ariel gazes at Prince Eric’s Castle while the tide rushes in. Can’t you just hear her singing “Part of Your World?”

Which pic do you like best?

Just a reminder – these two areas of New Fantasyland will open in a preview phase for all Magic Kingdom Park guests November 19, with a grand opening December 6.
