So I received my pre-ordered copy of The Disney Mountains: Imagineering at Its Peak by Jason Surrell from Amazon today, and as I was thumbing through it, I reached a lovely two-page spread of some Grizzly Peak concept art on pages 100-101. But something looked amiss...
-There was a sign that read "Grizzly Peak" in place of "Condor Flats"
-Condor Flats was very green
-There was a street car on a set of tracks in the entrance plaza, along with 1950's era "surfer" cars, one of which is shown in motion.
Now me being me, I immediately thought that this was an early concept. But too many of the current DCA details were there. So then I jumped in the other extreme direction,
"Is this what WDI has cooked up for this part of DCA?"
"No, of course not." I think to myself, "Disney wouldn't dare release new concept art before the big DCA redo is officially announced."
But how could I be sure? So I turned to page 99 and read the caption for the art, which said:
"2007 Dan Goozee view of Grizzly Peak."
I have seen the future...and it is good.
Unless that date is a typo.
Has anyone else seen this? And is this what the future has in store?
