Day 1 – August 19, 2011 – Part 4

I was a little bored tonight so I thought it would be nice to put up part 2 of the WD Parks and Resorts presentation.

Day 1 – August 19, 2011 – Part 4

I just left off at the WD Parks and Resorts presentation and now we are back to the presentation. Bruce Vaughn still kept talking about the expansion of the new FL at the MK.

The Little Mermaid home


Beauty and the Beast home


He also talked about the AA Lumiere at the attraction




Snow White home


The ride vehicle for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train








After the MK Fantasyland Expansion, Tom Staggs talked about the Aulani Resort & Spa in Hawaii.





Also they had a nice presentation with the dancers from the Aulani Resort and Spa

More photos from the Aulani Resort and Spa









Now pictures from Shanghai Disney Resort




Bob Weiss Executive Vice President Creative of WD Imagineering was on stage discussing Shanghai Disney Resort




Construction site of Shanghai Disney Resort






That’s it for this post since I am out of pics, I will get back to you.

Thank you

Day 1 – August 19, 2011 – Part 5

Now is the time to get back to the WD Parks and Resorts presentation at the D23 Arena during the D23 Expo

Day 1 – August 19, 2011 – Part 5

I just have left off with clips of Shanghai Disney Resort with Bob Weiss and Tom Staggs. They were talking about the newest Disney Resort and showing more concepts of the resort. Here are the pics from the Shanghai Disney Resort.





Bob Weiss said that the castle was using some parts of the Princess Stories




3D art of the Shanghai Disney Resort Castle which is also a ride.














Pictures of the ride underneath the castle.




After the Shanghai Disney Resort, Tom now was talking about DCA. Even though it was nice to hear more about the DCA expansion, I was hoping to hear anything new about the expansion. But most of that was at the other presentations during the Expo. So I wasn't expecting a lot of the littlest details about the Buena Vista Street and Cars Land. It was nice to see it.















Now to take the stage was Kathy Mangum Executive Producer of WDI. She talked about Cars Land which was really exciting since this will be a pre show until the Cars Land presentation on Sunday which I know you all are waiting to hear.





They showed all in the crowds of their pictures that they taken so they can get the details of Cars Land.






That it for this post since I am out of pics. I will get back to you later tonight.

Thank you Kaitlin. How did you like the seeing the cast of "So Random"?


Day 1 – August 19, 2011 – Part 6

I just left off with Kathy Mangum talking about the Cars Land project and we are back to it. It was neat to hear about their road trip to Texas to get ideas for Cars Land.





Now the pictures of Cars Land where it is right now. It was neat to see some of the pics from a better angle. I still like taking pictures of Cars Land from MFW and from the Blue Sky Cellar. Here are more pics of Cars Land.

Cars Land


That is one big wheel nut.




The Cozy Cone Motel which will be a eating area




Luigi's Flying Tires platform. I am looking forward to this ride after not experiencing the Flying Saucers back in the 60s. This is the ride I am looking forward to the most at Cars Land.






Radiator Spring Racers pics








Tom Staggs and John Lasseter during the testing of the racer last year




The CMs who are working in Cars Land will be wearing the shirts that John Lasseter is wearing a lot of the times you see him which is neat.


Now they showed more random pics of what could have been in Cars Land








More art clips of what Radiator Springs Racers will be like




Thats it for this post and I will get to the next one later tonight.

Thank you for posting all of those pictures of Cars Land. I could not attend the Expo (although I really wanted to), so I appreciate you sharing these and your other Expo pictures with us.

Keep the pictures coming!

Great update Bret! I'm looking forward to Cars Land. It always amazes me how Disney re-models the parks to keep them fresh and new. Many more reasons to visit!

Thank you TK. Same here, I been looking to Cars Land ever since Disney have made the announcement of the new land. Disney always have these arts and some of them never made it to the land, but it is always neat to look at drawings that are not part of the original plan. I can't wait till it opens next year.

I see. The whole day was crazy, but not as worse as Saturday which was the busiest out of all the days.

Your welcome Michele. Tom Staggs didn't say what is the official opening date for Cars Land even at the Cars Land presentation didn't give us the answer. All I heard at the presentation that it will be open during the summertime. I hope that they do have soft openings just like they did with the LMAUA & ST.


I will have the other part of the WD Parks and Resorts presentation up shortly so stay tuned.

Day 1 – August 19, 2011 – Part 7

Day 1 – August 19, 2011 – Part 7

Now to get back to the TR. I have left off with concept arts of Cars Land and all the pictures were really neat to see. It will get even better when I get to Sunday for the Cars Land presentation at Stage 23.

Some pics of Disneyland while Tom Staggs introduce the next person.




George Kalogridis the President of the DLR was now on stage




He was talking about the upcoming plans for DL which will surprise some of you. If you have seen and read about the new faire so this is not new news to you.



He talked about old attractions at DL which includes the America the Beautiful and Tahitian Terrace Restaurant which is good to hear about old attractions and restaurants that are not at DL anymore.


If you have already read on the other websites, George has made an announcement and turn the Carnation Plaza Gardens into the Princess Fantasy Faire in the future. This will be a good spot for guests to meet their favorite princesses.










This concludes the presentation during the WD Parks and Resorts presentation.




This presentation was good. We know some of the newest stuff what is happening at the Parks and Resorts. The one that caught my eye the most was the new Fantasy Faire which will take place for the Carnation Plaza Gardens. I am kind of sad to see the CPG go in the future, but it will be nice for a meet and greet for the guests.

When we left, we we head on over to the Disney Volunteer pavilion. On the way, I took a pic of the IASW store.


There were quite a number of people walking around after the presentation.


Disney Volunteer Pavilion


Then our next stop was the WD Parks and Resorts pavilion which was called the "Carousel of Projects" There was a small line to get in the presenation, but we only had to wait about a few minutes until we got inside. This is almsot similar to the one back in 2009 which they took us in a small room and showed some videos of the WD Parks and Resorts.











After the presentation was over, we head on in the Carousel of Project.


This is it for the posts and I will get back to it tomorrow.

The Aulani Resort and Spa looks very nice. I hope that you will be able to go to that resort since the presentation showed a lot of nice pictures.

Yea, good thing that it was only a minor bump during that day. But it didn't affected the whole day which was a good thing.

Same here Jillian. I can't wait until Buena Vista Street is opened next summer. The alternate queue to DCA is not that bad as I have heard.

Thank you

Thank you Michele.

I have heard that guests will travel through a village square surrounded by fairytale cottages and pavilions to the heart of the square. The village square will come alive with activities and entertainment, including a Royal Ribbon Parade where guests can dance and interact with Belle or Rapunzel. Guests can visit the their favorite Disney royalty at the Fantasy Faire.

The Fantasy Faire Stage will be a new entertainment venue where the stories of Disney’s fairy tale heroes and heroines will be brought to life, letting guests become part of the story as well.

‪And at night, the Fantasy Faire Stage will come alive with the classic music and dance offerings that Disneyland park guests have loved for years.

That is very interesting for the young kids to meet their favorite Disney princesses and get to interact with them with all sorts of activities and entertainment.


I will get back to the TR later tonight so stay tune.
