Magic Kingdom Fantasyland Expansion Update

Three weeks ago I wrote about the sneaky pictures of the Fantasyland Expansion as seen from the Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride.  I suggested that the metal framework in the picture may in fact be the beginnings of what would become Belle’s village.  Last week the Disney Parks Blog took us behind the scenes and revealed that in fact it is Belle’s village that is being built near what will be the gateway to the expanded area.  The framework in the picture?  That will be Maurice’s cottage!  Check out the updated image from the Disney Parks Blog:

It’s fun to look at how much progress has been made in just one short month!

    very cool!! YOU my friend ARE a Disney expert lol-that’s how your guess was right:)

    I love behind the scenes stuff! I remember watching a rare glimpse behind the scenes of how Disney operates on some show once..I wanna watch it again

  • I am so glad to have found your blog while searching for ‘disney dollars’. I just made a chores chart for my son to earn disney dollars for our upcoming trip to Disney in a few weeks. Last time we were there (we’re FL residents and go often) I took pictures of the developments in fantasyland. I’m so excited for it to open 🙂

    I’m off to explore your site!
