Disney Picks a Green Construction Company to Build Fantasyland
Disney recently signed up Birmingham, Ala. based Hoar Construction to do site development work for the project. The Fantasyland overhaul is expected to take about four years to complete.

Nice to see big businesses like this still exists. Nice job Disney for really working to find a solid company not based on price, but on good value standard!
