Concept Elevation: Tangled Retail

Here is a concept elevation I drew to explore the transition from the original Fantasyland architecture (inspired by places like Rothenburg) to the new, more theatrical Storybook style.  



In this imagined version of the MK (which you can see a couple posts down), Tangled has a dedicated sub-area that replaces IASW.  It begins with the famous bathrooms, goes into the hidden vale for the major ride, continues with dining at the Snuggly Duckling (with large artificial tree growing out of it) and bookends with what you see above: a small village area containing a shop or two. 

The tower on the right is the existing one between Village Haus and IASW (with a re-worked base).  My thinking is that the more geometrical half-timbering on the new nearest to the tower along with the background castle wall and towers help ease the transition to the more bulbous, thatch-roofed-style village (with Corona banners waving).

Nice work! I like how the color scheme moves into the Tangled style.

Great work! Will you also be doing an ideal buildout for Epcot and AK like you did for MK and DHS?

Can you do Disneyland Texas and Universal Studios Texas?

Disneyland Texas could be interesting.

I'd like to ask your opinion on a Southern version of California Adventure (called Dixie Adventure?) as a possible fifth gate in Florida, themed around the Deep South as a whole rather than California. Some potential lands could be:

New Orleans Street
Backwoods Bayou
Riverwalk (Paradise Pier in San Antonio's Riverwalk)
Space Central
Mermaid Lagoon (or something like it)
Magnolia Coast (like DisneySea's Cape Cod, but with rides and themed like Charleston or Seaside FL)
Musictown (DCA's Hollywood Land meets Nashville)

Wonderful theming, SWW.

If I may ask, could you put up the Choose Your Adventure park we all created last year? I know you removed posts to focus on key projects, but that was over a year ago and I'd like to revisit a lot of the buildouts you did in the past.

^ I strongly agree, we'd love to go back through your old posts.

^ & ^^ In the spirit of looking forward, not back, I'll do you one better...
