1/18 Fantasyland Photo Update Including View from Contemporary Resort & Grand Floridian DVC Work

Hi everyone!

I'm sure everyone knows now that President Obama will be speaking at the Magic Kingdom tomorrow. I don't know if we'll even try to head there yet (it's not a public speech). We just put up an article today talking about when George Bush Sr. and Hilary Clinton paid separate visits to the parks.

The view with a zoom lens (my Canon camera has a 35x optical/140x digital zoom) is exceptional of the new Fantasyland from the Contemporary Resort. Beast's Castle, Gaston's Tavern, the Little Mermaid show building and more can be seen from here.

We have new videos that include the Master Sorcerer Level/Game Completion of Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, as well as of Fantasyland from Disney's Contemporary Resort.

Trees were being planted at the Grand Floridian DVC construction area, apparently to create a berm between the Wedding Pavilion and the DVC construction (and possibly elsewhere, it looks this work was just starting). Photos out the left side of the monorail as we were heading to the Grand Floridian:

If you have questions about DVC, take a look at the Mouseowners website! They have a very friendly community.

 

And you can see the trees being planted:
