    Beauty and the Beast Castle in FL now visible

    You can now see the B&B castle in the Fantasyland expansion

    some photos here
    Beast’s Castle rises in Fantasyland at Disney’s Magic Kingdom - Orlando Attractions Magazine



    I think it's pretty exciting to see some of these major visual elements come to life!


    EDITORS NOTE:
    Photos added

    The Beast's Castle is now visible on top of the building which will house the restaurant.

    Love it. Nice to see Florida getting the sort of details that are usually saved for Disneyland or Tokyo.

    Very nice!

    We are talking about it, in that Fantasyland expansion thread that's stickyed to the top of this here board. It's got pictures and everything.
    It bothers me when people selectively edit quotes to support whatever point they are trying to prove.

    Very Very cool! I can't wait to see how it looks behind the hill/trees, etc. Ahh! Just reminds you how much potential this Fantasy Forest theme has!

    Looks cool but kind of reminds me of that castle in that fake Chinese Disneyland.

    Re: Beauty and the Beast Castle in FL now visible

    I think the Fantasyland expansion is going to catch a lot of people off guard. It is much larger and more detailed than a lot of folks expect out of WDW. We are hearing very positive things about the restaurant design and area theming. It is so refreshing to have something positive to talk about at the Magic Kingdom. Can't wait to see it all in action!

    They're busy arguing about the value of the new hitch-hiking ghosts in Haunted Mansion on another thread.

    Seriously, that film shows off the tremendous detail they're putting into this project. I played the other films this one links to and they show more views of the construction - from overhead. I knew this was going to be big but when you see the size of the area it encompasses from overhead, you realize just how big a change this will be. The old Toon Town is only a fraction of the piece of property they're using to do this. Now, I'm getting psyched for this.

    Re: Beauty and the Beast Castle in FL now visible

    When I first saw the pics this weekend I thought they were a mockup added to existing pictures. Can't wait till the facade work starts going up on Little Mermaid and Story Book Circus.

    Has anyone seem this in person that can comment on the scale? Hard to tell with all the flat dirt around.

    This palace is going to be a blast to explore, not to mention scarfing down some delicious grunts at the royal banquet. I hope to meet a certain gorgeous princess that just happens to ring my Belle.

    It's a model - it reminds me more of STorybookland than anything else.
