Rapunzel's tower at MK

Apologize if this has been answered, I searched the forums but couldn't find anything...

What is going to be in the Rapunzel tower/village being built at MK? Is it a m&g or a ride? We just returned and my Rapunzel loving DD4 was so disappointed that she couldn't go climb the tower. Lol.

Just curious.

I wish I was joking... it's going to be a bathroom.

There are rumors here that it looks so good that they may add a M&G as well, but there are no plans at this point.

The above is true...it's going to be a restroom "complex" for that area. The current restrooms behind Peter Pan are going to be taken out and the Peter Pan queue extended (and probably "interactive")

Haven't heard anything about a meet and greet going in there.

Can you imagine the smell? Disney restrooms always smell rank and chemical like.

I'm getting all germaphobe twitchy on this concept. I would love to meet rapunzel, she's my favorite.... But not if it meant going into a bathroom to do so....

is rapunzel going to be a bathroom attendant? if so, i can't wait to see all of the threads on proper tipping etiquette for her letting you wipe your hands on her hair.

One would assume if they did add a M&G, which at this point is purely speculation on a few posters' parts, myself included, it would be off to the side and not in or at the entrance to the bathrooms.

That being said, $3.50 seems proper for getting to use Rapunzel's hair as a paper towel.

With all the detail Disney puts in everything they do, I can imagine that instead of automatic flushing, you'll have to pull a braid to flush the toilet!

I get the idea behind themed restrooms, when they are themed to fit into an existing space. The Storybook Circus restrooms are themed to fit that area, as are the restrooms in Belle's Village. But it really doesn't make sense to create a NEW theme - especially one so elaborate - just for bathrooms. If all they wanted to do was add new restroom facilities, why not just theme generically to fit Fantasyland as a whole? If they wanted to do a specific theme, why not Small World, which they are right next to? I understand what Chris Beatty said and tuptorti's point about easing the bottleneck there, but the creation of a uniquely themed area just for restrooms doesn't make sense to me. Everyone will see the tower and assume that there is something Rapunzel-related to do there (M&G, attraction, restaurant, whatever) - just like OP's daughter did. And while I may not be the best judge of things like this, the newly constructed buildings seem too big to just house restrooms. Even a new snack kiosk would make more sense in that space than restrooms alone. Either Disney has something else up their sleeves, or they just spent a lot of money creating more questions for CMs to answer from confused guests.
