Did the Villains Banish the Dragon from New Fantasyland? When is He Coming Home? Finding Out the Truth Directly from Princesses, Villains and an Anonymouse Source

posted on November 30th, 2012 by Gary Buchanan, Social Media Managing Editor


Scouring the internet for clues about the dragon rumored to be heading “home” to New Fantasyland has been quite a quest — one that’s led me to even more questions. I’ve found archival photos, and had reports of sightings sent to me which have been chronicled on my “Disney Dragon” Tumblr blog.

For a dragon-loving guy like myself I have to admit — it’s been fun, but also frustrating at times. There’s definitely something flying around up there. But I need to find it. I need to see it.

So, I decided to go straight to the source, New Fantasyland, to dig for new clues. I wanted to talk to the residents, royalty and villains of the land. The truth is out there, and I won’t stop until I find it. Interviewing Disney Princesses and Villains gave me a few leads, and a few dead ends. But I feel I am getting closer.

A breakthrough, though, came when I received a hot tip about someone who had reliable information on where our flying friend might appear. While I can’t reveal the name of my anonymouse source, I can say this tipster is in the know about all-things-Disney. My exclusive interview is below.

Stay tuned, because I feel a major breakthrough coming soon. I think the next step in my dragon dilemma might just be an overnight expedition to where this highly placed source advises me to search.

My son loves Dragons, almost as much a Gary it seems, and he has found this story so exciting! Our whole family can’t wait to see what happens next!

Could this be a hint that we are finally getting Beastly Kingdom at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!! There is a dragon on the Animal Kingdom Sign.

Hmm… Winged creature, protector, hatched from an egg, was under an magic curse… This is obviously a gargoyle and not a dragon we’re dealing with. Jalapena!

The apple in the center of the shield representing New Fantasyland may be a clue.

I don’t like the looks of this, especially as the Queen has a quick cameo at the end of the Finding Fantasyland story.

Friendly dragon…I’m not so sure.

Elliot from Pete’s Dragon? I recall he loved apples.

Ohhhhh man I am LOVING THIS! When I went last week I kept looking up to try and find the dragon… And I bumped into the evil queen! Coincidence? I think not! Hahaha if he really is friendly… Then he might be under a curse from the villains. OHHHHHH ANNNNNDDDDD… You might find more answers in the enchanted forest! CAMPOUT GARY!

What I like seeing is the villains: since they don’t appear at Walt Disney World (at least not usually) maybe they will make a return to the park? After all: Gaston is a “villain”, right? And he’s there! Maybe it’s time to be able to meet some of the villains?
