    It should start soon. Phase 1 the Princess section should be done in 2012 with Pixie Hollow to follow the next year

      In case anyone hasn't noticed, there are construction walls now up on the Berm behind Fantasyland.

        I'm not sure if this counts as news but I did stumble across this: http://www.imagineeringdisney.com/st...d-model_LG.jpg
        The main difference I noticed between this model and the concept art that was released at the D23 Expo is that Dumbo has moved from near the train station to near the Mad Tea Party. In fact it looks like the Dumbo area and Pixie Hollow have traded places.

        It also appears that the Pixie Hollow area is little more than a playground made out of over sized common objects. Like we've never seen that before. I like a lot of the layout, especially the much needed addition of water to the area, but every time I look at it I can't help thinking, "We gave up 20,000 Leagues and Mr. Toad for this?"

        It bothers me when people selectively edit quotes to support whatever point they are trying to prove.

          Thanks for the Pic Dapper Dan!

          Everything looks pretty decent but I really really wish they where making a dark ride to go with each story (especially for beauty and the beast!!!!)

            I prefer to look at it like this: we gave up Mr. Toad and 20,000 Leagues for Pooh and the Pooh playground. We're giving up the Pooh playground, Toontown, and unused acreage for this. Feels better that way, right?

                In the picture Dapper Dan posted, did anyone else notice the windmill in front of the Little Mermaid area (on the backside of cinderella's meet 'n' greet building)? Any ideas as to what that's going to be?

                  That's exactly the same question I was going to type down if I didn't read your post. It wasn't mentioned in the blueprints or the expo. Does anyone know what the area behind Cinderella facing The Little Mermaid Ride is going to be. Maybe an unknown addition of Alice's or Pinnochio's Village

                    Since the original story is by Hans Christian Anderson (who is Danish), could it be an extension of The Little Mermaid area. . .complete with a Danish windmill?
