Today we an updated look at Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

All of the main structures are now in place, and work is continuing on adding theming elements to the Slinky Dog Coaster, and the roof is going on Alien Swirling Saucers.

The image below shows the latest progress on the piece-by-piece removal of Sound Stage 4 (top left corner), which was the former home to the Captain Jack Sparrow attraction. This area will ultimately become the entrance to Toy Story Land.

That’s not what I meant. What I meant was I like the cartoony one for fun. And I like The overhead realistic one for logistics.

You’re claim that published art is used for “logistics” is not really true.

WondersOfLifeApr 19, 2021

I’m not sure what you’re getting at but ok

Nobody uses concept art for "logistics". More and more published art is not even all that conceptual, being created on top of the "blueprints" if they're not just the "blueprints" like we have seen with the recent hotels at Walt Disney World.

One is realism, the other imaginative. I wish they'd use both styles. One is fun, the other is for logistics.

His concept art is waaaaaaaay better than whoever does that horrible cartoon style rubbish. EDIT - Rubbish is slightly harsh, it's just not a particular style I like (example below)

I'd love it if we eventually got the western town and Big Al's.

He's also the concept artist of New Fantasyland, Epcot Ratatouille area, play pavilion, the Disneyland Rivers of America remake, Disneyland's 50th castle decor & MK's 50th castle decor.

The original concept artist for TSL (among other projects) revealed himself on Twitter recently. An interesting tidbit is that someone asked about the lack of shade and acknowledged it. Regardless, still sad we didn’t get the full land as originally visioned with the bridge over SDD and the western-Town and barn gift shop. Original tweet:

So you wouldn't want the video of me shining a strobe light at a passing sasquatch while recreating Everest?

Yeah... day 100... *shoves socks back into drawer :cautious:

Just wait until day 100 of your confinement: you'll be putting on a sock puppet version of Great Moments in History from the windows of your house!

It beats the homemade recreations of favourite rides. Please, no more. How many times can you film people going down the stairs in a laundry basket and call it Splash, Pirates, Frozenstrom ...?
