Bret from NY on November 14th, 2011 at 10:40 am

Gaston Statue!

3

Bret from NY on November 14th, 2011 at 10:40 am

Ursula!

Ron from PA on November 14th, 2011 at 10:41 am

Ursela animatronic for the Little Mermaid attraction?

5

Ernest on November 14th, 2011 at 10:50 am

I’m going to say it’s Ursula.

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on November 14th, 2011 at 10:59 am

Wow, there are a lot of votes for Ursula!

6

Tim from PA on November 14th, 2011 at 10:54 am

I’m going to guess it’s the base of the new Dumbo spinner.

7

Jason on November 14th, 2011 at 10:56 am

Its one of the center pieces of the new Dumbo ride.

8

Laura on November 14th, 2011 at 11:06 am

Dumbo!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on November 14th, 2011 at 11:07 am

Wow, 4 guesses for Dumbo, 4 for Ursula and 1 for Gaston. Interesting!

Steven from OH on November 14th, 2011 at 11:10 am

The King Triton statue for the top of the little mermaid ride.

10

Brandon on November 14th, 2011 at 11:11 am

Is it a piece of the new castle wall for the entrance of the forest?

11

Laurie Lee on November 14th, 2011 at 11:13 am

I’m guessing it is part of the Storybook Circus as that is the first phase to open next year. It seems far too early for Ursula as I followed the progress of the Little Mermaid ride being built in California…

12

Steve on November 14th, 2011 at 11:21 am

+1 for Dumbo

13

Debbie on November 14th, 2011 at 11:23 am

I think it’s the chandelier for the Beauty and Beast restaurant.

14

Scott on November 14th, 2011 at 11:23 am

Make that another for the Gaston Statue. Since you can’t exactly break apart a statue, which you might be able to with Ursula, then Gaston takes my official guess. :)

15

Justin on November 14th, 2011 at 11:28 am

A giant Jennifer Fickley-Baker bobble-head. That’s 4 for Dumbo, 4 for Ursula, 1 for Gaston and 1 for our favorite Social Media Manager.

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on November 14th, 2011 at 11:36 am

I would love to be a part of Fantasyland, Justin. :)

16

Chad on November 14th, 2011 at 11:33 am

It’s a new yeti for Expedition Everest. UPS had the wrong address.

17

Steven on November 14th, 2011 at 11:35 am

Centerpiece for the new Dumbo ride

18

Jorge on November 14th, 2011 at 11:53 am

Ursula!

19

Cindy on November 14th, 2011 at 11:54 am

King Triton for The Little Mermaid ride

20

Matthew on November 14th, 2011 at 12:03 pm

My guess is the center piece for Dumbo as well. :) Can’t wait to see what it is!

21

matt from AL on November 14th, 2011 at 12:11 pm

I think it is the top piece to the tower at the little mermaid attraction.

22

Tim on November 14th, 2011 at 12:12 pm

It’s one of the Sebastian animatronics and a lot of bubble wrap.

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on November 14th, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Can you imagine popping bubble wrap this size?

23

Shannon on November 14th, 2011 at 12:23 pm

I think it’s King Triton to be added to the top of the attraction.

24

mike on November 14th, 2011 at 12:36 pm

i think it’s another part of eric’s castle. the concept art shows another tower on the end of the bridge, and there’s not one there yet. seeing as they just finished painting the bridge you would think it would be time to put on that tower.

25

Michelle from GA on November 14th, 2011 at 12:40 pm

+1 Dumbo

I love that everyone in the photo looks genuinely happy.

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on November 14th, 2011 at 12:57 pm

What a nice observation. I have to agree with you – they all look happy and excited.

26

Jennifer on November 14th, 2011 at 12:42 pm

It’s definitely Ursula…

27

Joshua on November 14th, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Its definitely NOT Ursula. I’ve seen Ursula at California Adventure and she is not as big as this object in the picture nor would she need to be trucked in on a massive flatbed this size. My bet is on the center of one of the Dumbo spinners.

28

Rob from GA on November 14th, 2011 at 12:45 pm

A Jason Surrell Statue?

29

Cody from TX on November 14th, 2011 at 12:50 pm

An interactive Pete for the Dumbo circus.

30

Tom on November 14th, 2011 at 12:56 pm

It’s the first piece of the castle wall, one of the spires, that will separate the courtyard and the forest.

31

Jason on November 14th, 2011 at 1:10 pm

I’m more interested in the cool blue golf cart in the background.

I vote Dumbo base.

32

William from MA on November 14th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

It’s Sebastian for the Under the Sea performance space in the Little Mermaid ride.

33

Paul from ON on November 14th, 2011 at 1:36 pm

The Figaro fries stand … I can dream, can’t I?

34

Samantha on November 14th, 2011 at 1:41 pm

I think its for Dumbo! I am excited to see what it is! Hopefully you tell us later today =)

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on November 14th, 2011 at 2:27 pm

Answer coming soon!

35

Debra on November 14th, 2011 at 1:42 pm

I don’t think it will be the center of the Dumbo ride because in the expansion there are 2 Dumbo ride platforms planned so there would have to be two things on that truck. Besides the centers of the Dumbo rides look like big balls based on the imagineers conceptual drawings. I think it is might be an Eric and Ariel statue based on one of those drawings.

36

Douglas from MD on November 14th, 2011 at 1:49 pm

Another Dumbo vote from me!

When are you going to share the answer?

37

Sean on November 14th, 2011 at 1:52 pm

They got a flatbed! (Honestly, I have no clue. I guess I have no imagination on Mondays.)

38

Courtney from NE on November 14th, 2011 at 2:26 pm

I will go with Gaston. There is supposed to be a very large Gaston statue in front of his pub, right?

39

Philip from FL on November 14th, 2011 at 2:48 pm

Is it Prince Eric’s castle for the top of the Little Mermaid attraction?

40

Otto on November 14th, 2011 at 2:51 pm

I guess it´s a part of the Casey Jr. water play area.

41

Kevin on November 14th, 2011 at 2:59 pm

The top of Prince Eric’s Castle :)

42

Kenneth from IL on November 14th, 2011 at 3:36 pm

You are all wrong, its the teleportation device that is going to bring me to Fantasyland! (Or it might be part of the Dumbo ride)

:)

43

Jennifer from MA on November 14th, 2011 at 3:38 pm

The fountain!

44

Bob on November 14th, 2011 at 3:41 pm

It is the fountain thingie at the entrance

45

Samantha on November 14th, 2011 at 3:41 pm

Chandelier for the Beauty & the Beast Dining Ball Room

46

Chris on November 14th, 2011 at 3:42 pm

I think its Dumbo lso. Looks like there is a statue in the center there. I say thats it!

47

Steve on November 14th, 2011 at 3:44 pm

@Debra There would only be one for Dumbo; they’re only adding one new Dumbo ride system. The existing Dumbo ride system will be moved to be the second of the two Dumbo rides.

48

Christine from FL on November 14th, 2011 at 3:48 pm

Part of the new Dumbo?

49

Jay on November 14th, 2011 at 3:50 pm

I definitely say Dumbo! I was just their last week and it looked like there was a space boarded up perfectly planned for the second Dumbo!

50

Jean on November 14th, 2011 at 3:55 pm

part of the dumbo fountain?
