    Any idea when Disney is releasing new concept art for DCA?

    Just out of curiousity, I was wondering when we might see any new DCA concept art that everybody knows they have by now. Any ideas?

    Re: Any idea when Disney is releasing new concept art for DCA?

    in the recent Disney Mountains book by Jason Surrell, there's concept art of aerial view of Grizzly Peak from this year. It shows a very green Condor Flats -- but in front of Condor Flats is a sign that says "Grizzly Peak". The train where Burrbank Ice Cream is no longer there and there's some old fashioned automobiles near where the sunshine plaza would be.

    I imagine more art will trickle out from here until 2010.

    Concept Art is usually made to express an idea. It's not necessarily a plan for what WILL happen. It's just a way for an Imagineer to say "wouldn't it look cool if..."

    So don't take concept art as gospel truth. I can name at least one time where concept art was actually altered to reflect a less ambitious project.

    Concept art for a particular project is created and recreated until the concepts and ideas are nailed down to near perfection. For example - take a look at some of Marc Davis' character renderings for the Haunted Mansion or Pirates - in many cases the concept art is pretty darn close to what we actually get.

    DCA's original concept art was probably more along the lines of what you think concept art is though.... Or at least it was what we were going to get until the budget was slashed.

    I could settle for just another update from Al that contains some new info. It's been a little over a month since the last one.

    As always, Al only updates when there's new information to report, and when all of his information has been checked.

    I don't think the Accountaneers made any concept art.

    The spreadsheets that estimated the profits will be available next year, though they'll cost a lot, in order to make up for the missed estimate.

    Sometimes seeing the concept art is more exciting than experiencing what gets built.

    Bring on the concept art!

    Does anyone here have a photo of that concept art?
