In yesterday's "Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid" video released by Walt Disney Imagineering, there appears to be some previously unreleased concept art for one of the lesser known attractions in the new Fantasyland, "Scuttle's Scavenger Hunt". 

We first got word of this attraction being part of the new Fantasyland back in May of this year, when Imagineering were carrying out some play testing at the Living Seas in Epcot (read the report here).  A few months later, a short description of the attraction appeared on the official Disney World web site:

"Scuttle's Scavenger Hunt
While approaching Ariel's Grotto to meet The Little Mermaid, join Scuttle for this fun, interactive game! Search the seaside entrance way to find the seagull's treasures from the Human World, like a dinglehopper or a bulbous snarfblatt. Scuttle will be on hand to help with the hunt."

This image released yesterday (shown below, and click the thumbnail for the large version) would certainly support that story description given above.  This addition to the area would support Disney's recent trend of adding interactive queues that are capable of supporting various "next-gen" initiatives, such as those recently added to the Haunted Mansion, Pooh, and the rumored Peter Pan queue upgrades.
