Thanks to Scott Keating of www.scottkeating.net, we have an “over-the-walls” aerial view of the consturctiuon going on in New Fantasyland, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and the new DVC wing at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa:

The tents from Toontown are basically being rebuilt, but the rest of the Storybook Circus looks like it will make it for Mid-Februaury

Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid and the Beauty and the Beast realm are coming along nicely. Foundations for the Seven Dwarf Mine Train are starting to appear

Dumbos are being carefully removed from the old spinner, getting ready for the move

The new Dumbo spinner looks ready to go, and the queue isn’t far behind

The Fantasyland Station is almost done, and the Casey Jr. Roundhouse should be installed soon

The waterways are being carved out under bridges

It looks like a path is appearing slowly in front of Enchanted Tales with Belle

Moving out of the park, land has been cleared for the Grand Floridian DVC addition

The Big Thunder Mountain Railroad refurbishment has begun, but there isn’t anything to see yet

  • Super photos!!!!

    They have ramped it up into high gear.  The Beauty and the Beast area is extremely large and impressive as is the Little Mermaid.  I am looking forward to seeing the Dwarf Mountain Mine Ride develop.  It will be a fine addition to Fantasyland.  The Circus Area, we will see.  I hope it will be a major improvement on the previous series of attractions in that area.  I must also hand it to Disney for their refurbishment of existing buildings, attractions. 

    Now give me a monorail extension to Hollywood Studios and eventually the Animal Kingdom and I will be Disney happy!!
