Photo Finds: Fantasyland, Disney parks updates plus Universal’s parade and lagoon show: May 14, 2012


By Kevin Yee

We take you to see what’s new at the Disney parks plus to Universal Studios for their new parade and lagoon show on this week’s Photo Finds:

At Walt Disney World, the Build a Droid counter has opened, and a new Muppet display greets visitors in the Stage 1 store. More progress has been made on the castle wall in Fantasyland, and some construction and new display boxes in Adventureland hints at a rumored second interactive game (like Kim Possible) for just this land. The safari has undergone changes; there is no more narration and the campsite/truck have been replaced by grassy areas, soon to be home to zebras.

Universal Studios has added Cinematic Spectacular, a lagoon show that uses a waterfall for projecting images, colored fountains, searchlights, and fireworks to celebrate 100 years of movies. They’ve also outdone themselves with the Superstar Parade, a Disney-quality parade based around Universal characters like SpongeBob SquarePants and Despicable Me.
