Machine With Old Designs Back At Fantasia Gardens
 
Tuesday, November 11th, 2014
 
 

Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf has a machine again with three designs that were at Hollywood Studios.

In the button "A" position is the Sorcerer Mickey design that was originally installed at this location in 2005. The machine with this design was removed in June 2012 and there has not been a machine at Fantasia Gardens since that time. This Sorcerer Mickey design was back on-stage in January 2014 when it was installed in a machine at the Prop Shop at Hollywood Studios. It was moved again to Oscar's Super Service at Hollywood Studios on August 31, 2014. Now the design is back to where it was first installed in 2005.

In the button "B" position is the Cinderella 5 of 5 design with the Wicked Stepmother & Ugly Stepsisters. This design and the Alice 3 of 6 design with the White Rabbit that is in the button "C" position were both originally at the Caribbean Beach Resort. They were both moved to Legends of Hollywood at Hollywood Studios in May 2013 but were removed when new Frozen designs were installed September 2014.

Since the Sorcerer Mickey design was moved from the button "B" position at Oscar's Super Service at Hollywood Studios, the other design that was originally in the machine at Caribbean Beach with the designs previously mentioned is now at Oscar's. This design is from the Alice In Wonderland series (2 of 6) that has the Cheshire Cat.
