Have You Heard of The Beastly Kingdom?

Did you know there was a land planned but never built at Animal Kingdom, based on good and evil mythological animals – like dragons and unicorns?

This month, WDW Magazine has introduced a new section called The Disney That Never Was, where fans can learn about abandoned park plans like The Beastly Kingdom.

If you’ve always been curious why Animal Kingdom signage features a dragon along with real and extinct animals, thought the “Unicorn” parking lot seemed out of place, or wondered what PANDORA: The World of Avatar has to do with Animal Kingdom’s theme, you need to read this!

What makes this new feature even better is that we’ve partnered with Touringplans.com and The Disney Dish Podcast to bring you detailed research, quotes from imagineers, concept art and more each month.

Plans for The Beastly Kingdom date back to at least the early ’90s – and  marketing material was even published in 1995 showing off early artwork for the land!
