On to the photos 

Starting out with the large model of Fantasy Faire 

Royal Hall

Royal Theater 

Tangled Tower 

The show building 

On to some of the concept art, the exhibits were broken down into several different “steps” of the design process. 

First step is research. For Fantasy Faire, WDI researched the original fantasyland as well as the many expansions the land

Second step is “Blue Sky.” This steps shows some of the first drawings of what eventually became Fantasy Faire 

Third step is “concept” 

Fourth step is “feasibility,” turing the concept into something that can fit into the park and make it work 

Our first look at Maurice’s Treats which is a food cart for the area selling specialty baked items and possibly dole whips.

Here is the sign for Fairytale Treasures, the merchandise location for Fantasy Faire. 

Neat tribute to Carnation Gardens 

Cool CGI concept of the area 

Neat art for Royal Hall 

Imagineers talked a lot about a neat music box in the land featuring Clopin from Hunchback of Notre Dame 

We are really excited about this. An outdoor Figaro animatronic will be placed on a window sill in fantasyland and every so often will wake up and try to grab a nearby animatronic bird. 

A new exhibit featured some concept art of Mickey and The Magical Map as well

The art on display of the show are concepts we have already seen 

Though one new piece of art shown was an overhead look at The Fantasyland Theater. According to this art, a pond we be constructed in front of the theater

The giant interactive map of DCA was removed and replaced with a piece of wall from Fantasy Faire. 

Stay tuned to DLNT as we continue our coverage of Princess Fantasy Faire opening this Spring inside Disneyland Park

The Blue Sky Cellar Is Here For Good

From Erin Glover the Disney Parks Blog:

Many Disney Parks Blog readers already know that Blue Sky Cellar is the place to get a behind-the-scenes peek at what’s coming to Disney California Adventure park. The space is periodically updated with new photos, videos and models – the latest refresh, which was installed in September, focuses on Buena Vista Street which will be completed next year. The video below, from Walt Disney Imagineering, takes you inside Blue Sky Cellar for a look at the latest updates. If you haven’t been yet, check it out!


Most of the info in this post we already knew being that this exhibit has been open for close to two months now. Though at the end of the movie, show producer Sarah Farmer Earll mentions that WDI does intend to keep the Blue Sky Cellar open after the DCA expansion is competed next year. Stay tuned to Disneyland News Today as we will report any changes in the Blue Sky Cellar.

From Erin Glover on the Disney Parks Blog:

Throughout the Disney California Adventure park transformation, Walt Disney Imagineering has kept guests updated on the expansion at Blue Sky Cellar – a space dedicated to special sneak peeks of the new experiences coming to the park. Beginning Monday, September 19, Blue Sky Cellar will close in order to be updated once again. When it reopens on September 23, guests will find new videos, models and renderings of the latest additions coming to Buena Vista Street, Cars Land and more.

Last week, we showed you the topping off of the Carthay Circle Theatre with the arrival of its 17-foot, 5,000-pound cupola. I know that many of you have commented on how much you enjoy the time lapse construction videos we show from time to time on the Disney Parks Blog. Below is a peek at one of the items to be featured in the updated Blue Sky Cellar – a time lapse video of Carthay Circle Theatre construction through last week.

Also set to debut this week at Blue Sky Cellar are new attraction posters for The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, Goofy’s Sky School and Grizzly River Run. Designed in the style of the traditional Disney theme park attraction posters, these three are sure to become instant classics.

I’m sure many of you are anxious to add these to your attraction poster collection, along with previously released images for California Screamin’, Mickey’s Fun Wheel and Silly Symphony Swings, so look for many of these attraction posters and much more when they become available in Spring 2012.

There is so much to see at Blue Sky Cellar, from models and artist renderings to concept drawings and more, all crafted by Walt Disney Imagineers.
