Better than the original plans.
so no more pixie hollow? and what r they doing to the side of the castle?
...so the Tea Cups is still getting a redesign???
Wow, the company that brought us Pirates, The Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, and this is the best they can do? A restaurant, a family coaster, princess meet and greet, a dark ride, and carny games with a circus theme? This is the biggest expansion in Magic Kingdom history? Would someone tell me where the innovation, bar raising effort is here? This will be an exciting attendance draw . . . yawn.
It is sad...but could be worse.
Could be getting Cars Land, like California Adventure.
Phew...thank god WDW dodged that bullet.
Everyone who thinks this terrible really needs to take a step back and look at the bigger picture here. From all of the artwork I've seen and all of the descriptions I've read, I can honestly say this the Fantasyland I've been waiting for. I am impressed with the amount of theming that's going in and I can't wait for the new Snow White roller coaster to open. Let's be honest, ever since Disneyland re-themed their entire Fantasyland, it made Magic Kingdom's look like crap. The Imagineers are raising the bar here and I'm sure once this opens you all will change your opinions.
This is nuts. I can't believe people are actually telling themselves this is a brilliant expansion. Seriously? It's as if they're afraid to say what they actually see in fear their visions of Disney will be shattered. I love Walt Disney World and Disneyland but come on, face reality.
"Circusland," using carnival games and the same tents from Toontown Fair, ?The Great Goofini? with the same ride vehicles, and not one but two Dumbo rides? You really think this will draw people in?
A moderate family coaster with "ride vehicles that swing back and forth as they whisk along the track? This may be presented in as a new version of this idea, but it is not a new idea or a first. A D-Ticket Mermaid (no arguing here, this will be no Haunted Mansion or Pirates of the Caribbean), a restaurant, Belle's village consisting of a 'Tavern' and two shops (look at the rendering), a Belle meet and greet along with a separate Princess meet and greet with a repainted tent facade?
No matter how you guild this lilly, there is no innovation here, raising the bar, or pushing the envelope within Disney's own confines and certainly not raising the bar or pushing any innovation in the theme park industry. This expansion no matter how hard you look is simply okay. If this is the Fantasyland of your dreams than you've forgotten how innovative and visionary the dreams of Walt Disney were.
