Picture This…

May 9, 2010

True Disney Fanatics are well aware of the Fantasyland makeover going on in the Magic Kingdom – just a few weeks ago construction walls went up around the area that had housed Ariel’s Grotto meet-and-greet and Pooh’s Playful Spot.

This past weekend we noticed that the usually drab walls had been enhanced by the addition of three large murals showing fanciful renditions of some of the upcoming additions to Fantasyland (one of which, yes, involves food!).

You can see the sign for the now-closed Scuttle's Landing over the top of the wall.

Nearest to the Teacups is the painting highlighting the new Little Mermaid themed Under the Sea attraction. If this is anything like the ride once proposed that was shown on the Little Mermaid dvd extra, it will be a wonderful addition… but then, how can anything featuring a young redhead in a clamshell bra be a bad thing?

And if we’re not getting a version of the submarines back, at least we’re getting something ocean-related in the same general area.

At the other end of the wall, right by Dumbo (or at least the current version of Dumbo), is a mural titled “Enchanted Tales With Belle”. Seems like the lovely and erudite Princess will be moving her story time to a new venue…

And as we’ve heard all the Princesses (as well as Tink and her Pixie friends) will be having their own homes (and meet-and-greets) in the new expansion, this looks to be just a small preview of much more to come… be still my beating heart…

In between the two (across from the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh) is the image highlighting one of the upcoming eateries – the Beauty and the Beast themed Be Our Guest Restaurant.

It says basically nothing about the actual food that will eventually be served here, but we’re looking forward to a new dining option in the Magic Kingdom nonetheless.

We’re back to the kitchen – see you soon!
