Destination D Walt Disney World 40th, Dreamfinder Returns, Star Tours: The Adventure Continues Soft Opening, New Fantasyland Construction Update – Photos & Video

Hi everyone!

We had a fantastic time at Destination D! The event was full of wonderful Disney memories, and we made some new ones as well. There was even a small Archives area which consisted of characters such as Donald Duck, Panchito and José Carioca from the classic Mickey Mouse Revue (below, left) and Figment from the original Journey into Imagination. (below, right).

Mr. Mustard from the original Epcot Center Land Pavilion’s Kitchen Kabaret was also part of the display (below, left). We had another opportunity to meet Disney Legend and Imagineer Bob Gurr (below, right) he’s always very friendly.

The Main Street Philharmonic delighted D23 members with some tunes (below, left), before the phenomenal Richard Sherman took to the stage (below, right). Sherman played and sang a variety of his most popular songs, from “it’s a small world” to Walt Disney’s favorite “feed the birds” and even pulled a few out that were more obscure.

The highlight of the evening for nearly everyone was when Dreamfinder took the stage with Figment (below left and right). Entertainer Ron Schneider is a friend of ours, and we had talked with him several times over the weekend – he’d never given any hint that he’d be performing! It was an incredible, magical moment.

Dreamfinder (Ron Schneider) entertained the crowd on his own (below, left) and then sang “One Little Spark” with Richard Sherman (below, right). The crowd went totally crazy when he walked onstage, and we were so fortunate to be able to see it live!

Dreamfinder, Figment and Richard Sherman stand for their deserved applause (below, left). After their performance, the cast choir Encore sang a medley of original Epcot Center songs, including Tomorrow’s Child, New Horizons, Universe of Energy, Listen to the land and more (below, right).

Dreamfinder, Figment and Richard Sherman stand among other entertainers that were part of the evening (below, left). You’ll notice at the middle of the photo, Billy Flanagan, who has worked for Disney since the Centennial – 30 years! You can find him pumping up the crowds at the Christmas Parade tapings. Richard Sherman (below, right) dons D23 ears.

Bonus Clip – Original Dreamfinder Ron Schneider sings One Little Spark in it’s a small world, Disneyland – Ron Schneider, the original walk-around Dreamfinder from Walt Disney World’s Imagination Pavilion at Epcot Center showed us how “One Little Spark” can be sung to the tune of “it’s a small world” while at Disneyland last year :)

Star Tours Flight Testing started on Saturday (below, left). We didn’t make it to Disney’s Hollywood Studios until today, and we enjoyed two flights aboard the Starspeeder 1000!  Cast members had their new flight suits on (below, right).  We enjoyed the new attraction! The queue had many new features, we are looking forward to exploring it further. There are 54 unique combinations in the ride, consisting of 2 beginnings, 3 middles and 2 ends. We had the same beginning both times (Stormtroopers), a different middle each time (Hoth in a sled the first, the Wookie planet on a speed bike for the second), and Yoda was part of our experience during the first ride, with Princess Leia the second. We enjoyed the Wookie planet more than Hoth, but both were a lot of fun!

Over at the Magic Kingdom, the scrim is now down from the back of Cinderella Castle, and it looks beautiful again (below left and right).

Fantasyland is coming along nicely, you can see Belle’s Cottage and The Beast’s Castle (below, left) and detailed rock work nearby (below, right).

The Be Our Guest Restaurant (below, left) is visible from Dumbo, and The Little Mermaid building is progressing as well (below, right).

Video #2 – Fantasyland Construction Update Including from Dumbo 5/16/11 Magic Kingdom Walt Disney World – A new video update showing Beast’s Castle and more from Dumbo and the ground! Also, the scrim is now down from the back of Cinderella Castle, which is part of this video.
