Magic Kingdom Update: Fantasyland Construction, Trees Cleared, Parade with Grand Marshals Miss America & Childrens Miracle Network Champions, Disney’s Hollywood Studios Update – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We had the opportunity yesterday to take photos and video as Miss America Teresa Scanlan joined Champions from the Children’s Miracle Network as Grand Marshals in the Celebrate a Dream Come True parade (below left and right). Champions are young ambassadors from around the country who represent the 17 million children who have benefitted from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

 

Miss America waves to the other Champions and their families who were at Town Square to watch the parade (below, left), which was reversed for better viewing (from Frontierland to Main Street USA). Captain Hook and the Red Queen shake hands with the Champions (below, right).

 

Video #1 – Magic Kingdom Parade with Grand Marshals Miss America & Childrens Miracle Network Champions – Miss America Teresa Scanlon joins some of the Champions from the Children’s Miracle Network as Grand Marshals in the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade. These ambassadors have each been treated for medical challenges, and represent the 17 million children who have been treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Pooh and Tigger walk to their greeting spot near the Tomorrowland Speedway (below, left). We still have to get one of these Not-So-Scary Donald mugs, a friend just purchased one in Tomorrowland (below, right).

 

Our original plans for yesterday afternoon were to go to Fort Wilderness to enjoy the Halloween decorations – but when we saw Fantasyland opened up without trees, we stayed put. The rock work beneath Beast’s Castle has developed further since we were last here (below, left). Bon Jour Village Gifts (below, right) sits in the middle of the construction in a view from Dumbo The Flying Elephant.

 

From Dumbo, you can also see the pile of dirt that is just behind the wall (below, left). The first area to open will be Storybook Circus in early 2012, and the queue for the new Dumbo is moving full speed ahead (below, right).

 

Eventually this will be a circus tent with the two Dumbo queues (below left). From the PeopleMover, you can really see the mountain range of Fantasyland! (below, right)

 

We took a ride on the Walt Disney World Railroad as the sun started to set. This area really provides a nice view looking into the former Mickey’s Toontown Fair (below left and right). Goofy’s Barnstormer is in transition, soon to be The Great Goofini.

  

Video #2 – Fantasyland Construction Including from Dumbo, PeopleMover, Railroad 10/20/11 Magic Kingdom – This is the extended version of our Fantasyland coverage – including from Dumbo, the PeopleMover and Railroad, but also video shot from ground level. The trees that blocked the Fantasyland landscape previously were completely gone when we were there yesterday.

We had the best weather in months yesterday, low 70’s with a bright blue sky! Denise went to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and found new flowers around the “Splash” fountain (below, left). She also checked out the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights installation progress, and much has been done since our last visit there (below, right).

 

It’s a little hard to see, but the area where “The Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights” will be written out is getting ready for the letters (below, left). The Peace on Earth globe has been installed at the end of the street (below, right). Less than three weeks until the Osborne Lights kicks off it’s 2011 season on November 10th!

 

We also found these cool new retro shirts in one of the shops (below left and right). Who doesn’t love Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers and Duck Tales? We both expect these to be huge sellers!
