SET: ONCE UPON A TIME’s Island Haven in Present-Day Fairytale Land Destroyed in 2×05 – Updated
A donkey interrupted a Once Upon a Time take at this village set below located on the shore of Deer Lake in Burnaby. It’s meant to be the Island haven in present-day Fairytale Land/the Enchanted Forest. This is where Emma and Snow/Mary Margaret are taken by Mulan and Aurora. And where knight Lancelot, (or at least we think it’s Lancelot until Cora’s shapeshifting magic is revealed) reunites with Snow/Mary Margaret. By the time I photographed it though, the village set had been damaged. I blame Ogres. [Update: It turns out it wasn't the Ogres but Cora who destroyed this village and ripped out the hearts of its inhabitants, as we discover in episode 2x05 The Doctor. All died except Captain Hook , whom Emma tied to a tree.]
Once Upon a Time’s second season airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC in the U.S. and 7 p.m. on CTV in Canada.
