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 2×05 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.
