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).

D23 Presents: Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives Exhibit at Reagan Library Preview, Haunted Mansion Ghosts & Bride, Walt’s Office, More – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Last week we sent a reporter to the preview of D23 Presents: Treasures of the Disney Archives in Simi Valley, California. The exhibit is being held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library through June 2013, with over 500 artifacts – many that have never been displayed. The entrance to the exhibit shows Walt Disney and Ronald Reagan side by side (below, left), they were longtime friends. We have seen some of the memorabilia items previously, such as this Mickey Mouse animatronic (below, right) from the Mickey Mouse Revue.

Magic Kingdom: Fantasyland Construction, Dumbo Testing, Barnstormer Sign, New Trees in Town Square plus Disney’s Port Orleans Resort Mardi Gras Parade – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We started out yesterday with a parade at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort and then ended it at the Magic Kingdom (below, left) to meet with friends. Dumbo the Flying Elephant’s new spinner was continously testing while we were in Fantasyland, with a Storybook Circus sign for “The Barnstormer” (below, right).

Buy it Now – Jeff Lange Remembers: Adventureland Classics

Jeff Lange takes you on a trip back in time to experience classic Walt Disney World “Adventureland” attractions. This fourth volume in the series features the following:

Adventureland Tour (1992-1997)

Take a walk through Adventureland as it was in the 1990’s! View a live parrot in front of the Swiss Family Treehouse. Experience the original layout before The Magic Carpets of Aladdin attraction was added and enjoy an up-close and personal view of the drumming Tiki statues! The Tropical Serenade beckons, concluding with a brief look at Caribbean Plaza!

Jungle Cruise (1993)

Drift through the original foliage canopy into the misty rainforest, setting the atmosphere as your boat heads deeper into the jungle. This version of the Jungle Cruise features the original Jungle boats, the familiar Schweitzer Falls, a flooded Cambodian temple and as always – the backside of water! The Jungle Cruise in 1993 had not yet added the downed airplane but includes all of your favorite classic scenes. Your ride ends with Chief Nami, “Head Salesman of the Jungle” offering “three of his heads for one of yours”!

Enchanted Tiki Birds Tropical Serenade (1992)

Clyde and Claude, a pair of storytelling birds, welcome you to this charming attraction that delighted audiences from opening day. “Have a great show, a real Tropical Serenade!” we hear at the end of their banter, and the doors magically open to guide us into the Sunshine Pavilion. You’ll be transported to a tropical paradise where birds sing while telling lighthearted jokes on a variety of set pieces, and even the flowers join in! The Tiki gods usher in a rain storm with lightning and thunder that shakes the walls, before calm is restored. And the last magic trick before you leave? “Everybody face the door, we’re going to make you all disappear!” Includes brief scenes of the Sunshine Tree Terrace and Tiki Tropic Shop.

Pirates of the Caribbean (1992)

Immerse yourself in the Walt Disney World adaptation of the last attraction that was personally overseen by Walt Disney. This is the original opening day version of the beloved attraction, recorded before changes were made to the chase scene and pooped pirate. Your adventure starts at the Pirates of the Caribbean exterior, where the Barker Bird sets up the story of the ride (you’ll experience the full narration). Continue through the queue and load areas, and sail past all of your favorite ride scenes as originally presented!

Pirates of the Caribbean (1997)

“A parrot’s life for me!” squawks the Barker Bird outside of this updated version of the classic Disney attraction. This ride-through showcases the changes that were made to the ride in 1997, including the chase scene where women now chase the pirates. The Treasure Room scene near the end of the ride (unique to Florida) features two guards tied to chairs as pirates engage in horseplay – and gunplay – celebrating their conquest. Includes the queue, exit ramp and a brief look at the House of Treasure!

Relive these Adventureland Classics year after year or experience the magic for the first time by purchasing a copy of “Jeff Lange Remembers Adventureland Classics”.

Remembering Disney's Pirate & Princess Parties: 2007-2008

Hi everyone!

Today’s photo memory features a look back at all three versions of Disney’s Pirate & Princess Parties! This was a great event that was last presented back in 2008. I attended the original incarnation in the winter of 2007, followed by the summer 2007 version as well as the final incarnation in winter 2008 (renamed Mickey’s Pirate & Princess Party)! Pirate Mickey (below left) advertising the party outside the Magic Kingdom entrance. The Train Station is decorated for the party as we enter via a smoke filled magic carpet (below right)!

Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Update: Captain Jack Sparrow's Pirate Tutorial (On New Stage) – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Captain Jack’s Pirate Tutorial moved to a new stage a few weeks back, and Mousesteps was there to get photos and video of the show! Note: These were taken several days after the accident that led to the death of a cast member in the show, our condolences go out to the family and friends of Mark Priest. There is a wonderful write-up about him in the Orlando Sentinel HERE.
