Walt Disney Imagineers Receive a Piece of New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park

Check out the special delivery this team of Walt Disney Imagineers received at the Walt Disney World Resort earlier this month. We’re told it’s a key piece of an attraction that’s planned for New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park.

New Dumbo Attraction at Walt Disney World

Thanks for submitting all of your guesses. Many of you were actually correct: This mystery image is one of the two new centerpieces of the new, doubled Dumbo attraction.

Want to see more on New Fantasyland? Take a look at the following posts:


  • part of the dumbo fountain?

  • 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!

  • Part of the new Dumbo?

  • @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.

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

  • Chandelier for the Beauty & the Beast Dining Ball Room

  • It is the fountain thingie at the entrance

  • The fountain!

  • 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)


  • The top of Prince Eric’s Castle 🙂

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

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

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

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

  • Another Dumbo vote from me!

    When are you going to share the answer?

  • 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.

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

    • Answer coming soon!

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

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

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

    I vote Dumbo base.

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

  • An interactive Pete for the Dumbo circus.

  • A Jason Surrell Statue?

  • 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.

  • It’s definitely Ursula…

  • +1 Dumbo

    I love that everyone in the photo looks genuinely happy.

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

  • 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.

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

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

    • Can you imagine popping bubble wrap this size?

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

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

  • King Triton for The Little Mermaid ride

  • Ursula!

  • Centerpiece for the new Dumbo ride

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

  • 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.

    • I would love to be a part of Fantasyland, Justin. 🙂

  • 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. 🙂

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

  • +1 for Dumbo

  • 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…

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

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

  • Dumbo!

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

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

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

  • I’m going to say it’s Ursula.

    • Wow, there are a lot of votes for Ursula!

  • Ursela animatronic for the Little Mermaid attraction?

  • Ursula!

  • Gaston Statue!

  • i think it’s Audio-Animatonic Ursalu for the Little Mermaid ride!
