At the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) this weekend in Seattle, Warren Spector and Junction Point Studio will be unveiling a brand new level from ‘Disney Epic Mickey 2,’ which attendees will be among the first to experience. Fort Wasteland, as the area will be known (formerly the Disney Gulch), is based on Frontierland as it appeared at the Disneyland theme park in 1955, featuring attractions such as the Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland and Fort Wilderness on Tom Sawyer Island.
To celebrate the new area, Disney Interactive has shared with us newly released concept art and screen shots for the area along with gameplay video (available within the hour). The Disney Archives has also graciously released two photos from Disneyland’s Frontierland in 1955 which we also share in the gallery below:

Worth noting is that one of the screenshots features a screen that reads Music Land, indicating that the 1935 short will be one of the side-scrolling homage levels in the game, joining The Old Mill.
In addition to experiencing the new area of the game, visitors to the booth (North Hall #642) will also have the opportunity to receive a sketch from a Disney Character Sketch Artist, giveaways and more.
Available to own November 18, 2012 on all consoles, the ‘Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two’ video game returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with more than 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners – Mickey with the magical paint brush that allows him to wield paint and thinner, and Oswald with a powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity.
