  • Fantasia Shop Grand Opening, Contemporary, T-Rex, other pics by Denise

    I'd pushed my Disney day from yesterday until today, and happened to be there for the Fantasia shop grand opening at the CR. It was planned for 2 months ago, but the doors weren't installed until last week. I am still getting the hang of my new flash (it's very nice!)

    I also took other pics around the Contemporary and T-Rex.


    There are 100 or so photos here: http://www.mousesteps.com/index.php?...d=34&Itemid=65















    A couple of new things at the Contemporary, including this post/pole thing (I don't know what it does!)





    Kerri Macpherson, WDW Ambassador:





    Earliene Anderson, a Contemporary Resort CM who has been there since the beginning. She helped cut the Fantasia gift shop ribbon:




    T-Rex. You can see that there is a secondary fence with also a T-Rex sign on it, I don't know when they plan to remove the outer fence:

    I think that "post/pole thing" is a support for the new "connector" to the Kingdom Tower.

    I'm a big fan of your reflection pics!

    Did they take away the cool monorail play set display? I really liked that.

      Thank you, I probably do too many of the reflection ones! But I do like the way they turn out.

      The old display is not there now (maybe it will be back for Christmas, I don't know). There is a video monitor showing the monorail merchandise items now. I need to write that in. I was thinking it had to do with connecting the towers, I just don't know anything about construction at all!

          You missed me too! By about 15 minutes at the MK.

              T-Rex is the new pre-historic themed restaurant currently under construction next door to McDonald's at WDW's DTD. Think Rainforest Cafe with a dino theme. A great place to shop and be eaten by a hungry T-Rex.

                            Last time I checked, it was turned into one of those unnecesary Video Arcade areas. Very cheaply done.

                                  It's TDLfan - so yup! But he's a sweetie in person (I was going to say a word that was blocked, that ended with cat!)

                                  I wonder if the other monorail display may be up again at Christmas.

                                    I like the reflection pics too! I hope the TRex is open when I'm there in December!

                                      Thanks! The T-Rex should be open much earlier than that.

                                        Fantasia looks a bit out-of-place, it was fine where it was before. Couldn't they put the arcade in the new building?? I think they need to make the Contempoary Resort more "Contempoary" looking...and remove the Mary Blair mural (which is great, but also seems a bit out of place in a futuristic themed resort).

                                        Anyways, great pictures!
