Magic Kingdom New Fantasyland Update: Pooh’s Playful Spot Tree Moves, Ariels Grotto Removal – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

The tree from Pooh’s Playful spot in Fantasyland has now been moved next to the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. It is still behind a wall as it gets fixed into the ground (below left and right).

Piglet (below, left) enjoys his new place next to the attraction (below, right).

Looking under the wall, you can see the ground where the tree is (below, left) and another view of the full tree (below, right).

The night before, we got these photos of the tree up against the wall at Pooh’s Playful Spot in preparation for the move across the street (below left and right).

Bonus Video – Fantasyland Expansion, Pooh Tree Moves (4/29/09) – The tree that was at the Pooh’s Playful Spot is now situated next to the Pooh ride (though still behind a wall).

The Ariel’s Grotto signage is completely gone now (below left and right).

All that is left of the Ariel’s Grotto sign area is some shells and the border (below, left). We had an update previously on Casey’s Corner, here is one photo with the facade fully up (below, right). The restaurant is still open.

Disneyland’s Light Magic and One Man’s Dream:

Jeff Lange Remembers: Disneyland’s Light Magic (Includes: One Man’s Dream Show)

Jeff Lange brings you vintage footage from two completely different but unique elements of Disneyland history!

Light Magic replaced the popular Main Street Electrical Parade, but ended after only 4 months in 1997. Two different vantage points – from the Small World mall and Main Street USA – give you a complete look at Light Magic!

One Man’s Dream was a beloved stage show that also ran for 4 months in 1990 before making way for Dick Tracy’s Diamond Double Cross. Performed at the Videopolis theater, this show celebrated the remarkable imagination of Walt Disney. This is a show not to be missed!

Running Time: 66 min
