This is the one that all of you fans of WDI artwork are waiting for! A big artwork tribute to the most beautiful Disney park WDI have ever built. For those of you who may have seen the article on Mice age i did some weeks ago, this is an "extended" version with much more artwork, so don't go away!
From the opening day, the park has been acclaimed, and for a lot of good reasons: the theming was stunning, the story line and the E Ticket were perfect and it seems that, for once, the WDI Imagineers were asked to add more details and that no major budget cuts were done.
I was invited at the grand opening and i still remember a person from the press office telling me : "you know, Alain i don't think we will see again a park like this one before a loooong time". Unfortunately, until now, he was pretty right.
But i think that the new Disney management have now understood the mistakes of the end of the Eisner's era, so hopefully, may be we will see another park as beautiful as this one in the future.
Anyway, all along this week-end you will see a three part TDS artwork article, and this first one shows the renderings of the entrance and Mysterious Island, a pure dream come true for any Jules Verne lover.
As usual, i've tried to find for you the best definition possible for the images, but it depends of the source, so, some time it will be just "good", sometime it will be "great". As always, click on each picture to see them in bigger size.
