New for 2006: Construction Courtyard

Friday, 22nd September 2006 at 15:04

So you're a fan of construction sites and fences? Then head on over to Walt Disney Studios Park, where the art and the artistry of the building site is presented in all its glamorous, glittering glory. New for late September 2006, Animation Courtyard is transformed into Construction Courtyard with a new round of fences between Disney Studio 1 and Animagique...,

As if the Tower of Terror, Crush’s Coaster, Cars Race Rally, Walt Disney Studios Store and Art of Disney Animation fences weren’t enough, there’s now even more to discover! The large flower bed between Disney Studio 1 and the Monsters Inc. character location has just been cordoned off, to allow for new paving, the alteration and expansion of the planting area and the installation of the land’s new Sorcerer Mickey welcome statue.

Unlike the newer blue fences installed around Art of Disney Animation at the end of August, this new fence-based attraction comes in the classic shade of green. Both fences, however, aren’t totally devoid of magic. Between the classic “Pardon our pixie dust” Walt Disney Imagineering signs, they feature a variety of signs pointing the way to Animagique, Flying Carpets Over Agrabah, Art of Disney Animation and even the Monsters Inc. location.

These fences bring the “fence-coverage” score of the land to an all-time high, with this area, the new Toon Studio area, the Art of Disney entrance and the entire area in front of Flying Carpets Over Agrabah adding up to a less than magical (though quite immersive) theme park experience. Luckily, project schedules have this latest section due for completion as early as November, so the first major benefits of this massive overhaul project should be seen sooner rather than later.
