Magic Kingdom Update: Be Our Guest Restaurant, Enchanted Forest, Former Skyway Station, Country Bears Pre Refurb, Grand Floridian Water Playground – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Yesterday we went to the Magic Kingdom to see the last shows of Country Bear Jamboree before it went down for refurbishment. There is talk that several minutes might get cut from the show, so we wanted to make sure to capture it in photos and video just in case. But first, we took a look at New Fantasyland progress, and found that the sign for the Be Our Guest Restaurant is now up! Behind it appears to be a griffin (below, left). The Be Our Guest sign (below, right) features a rose and several symbols.

Hi everyone!

In keeping with our updates of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, we stayed one night in a Lion King suite. Mufasa and Simba are on a notepad outside of the building (below, left). As with all of the family suites, there is a living area, a dining area, and one bedroom. The suites sleep six. Zazu is on the headboard, surrounded by the sun – which continues into the comforter!

Disney Studios Wreck-It Ralph Display at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Animation Gallery Including Artwork and Maquettes – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We stopped by Disney’s Hollywood Studios yesterday, and visited the Magic of Disney Animation Building to see if anything had changed. We expected the Brave art exhibit to be there, but instead found Wreck-It Ralph concept art and displays in the Production Gallery (below, left)! Ralph (below, right) spends over 30 years as a villain in a game called Fix-It Felix, but grows weary in playing the bad guy. He leaves the game, and soon ends up in other adventures. Ralph (below, right), offers Pac-Man cherries to Q*Bert characters.

Fantasyland Enchanted Forest Update: Gaston and LeFou Fountain, Gaston’s Tavern, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Show Building, Storybook Circus Dumbo Photo Spot – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We are always asked for Fantasyland updates, so we went to the Magic Kingdom today to find something new to bring you! We were toward the end of our day when we noticed that the statue of Gaston is in place, along with LeFou (below, right). This is to be a fountain, and it appears that Gaston is holding barrels in both hands. In the previously released concept art, it looked like he was holding a gun in one hand and a barrel in the other (Disney concept art: below, left).
