They are anticipating a change in wardrobe for the princesses for the first time in many years when Fairytale Hall opens in 2013. Maybe they just don't want to invest in more gowns. Well, and salary.
Actually, if they are going to pull Belle from the Town Hall meet & greet it is possible they're just doing it this way for the soft open... Because the other Belle and the other yellow gown are otherwise occupied right now but won't be after the official opening. It wouldn't make sense to cast/train/costume a 3rd Belle just for testing and soft openings, so I think what we're seeing right now is one Belle trying to cover a job that will eventually be split between two.

Well, from what I can tell, the new gowns aren't supposed to make their debut until late 2013 when Fairytale Hall opens. And isn't a soft open supposed to be to train the new staff? Maybe I'm just over-simplifying.

That sounds plausible...hope you are right...would that possibly slow down the rush meet and greet? Sounds like the have a good 7-8 weeks to figure that out...I have faith they will

A video form the 22nd of September

Here is a great video, this person has no quams about peaking over the wall, so you see some really nice shots of landscaping around the big tents. It also shows a fairly significant drop right behind the walls near the mine train, if the people walking on the other side only knew. Finally it is a really good indication of how fast progress can occur. If you notice that on the 22nd there was no staging or trees on the mountains by the Beast's castle or the wall was not exposed on the way to dumbo, but on the 23rd they were.

VERY interesting. It's hard to get a true idea of the scope of the changes without seeing videos like this or actually being there. Thanks for posting.

What is Fairytale Hall? We are going in May and I was thinking all of new Fantasyland would be up and running with the exception of the Mine Train. Is that wrong?

Fairytale hall is the new Princess Meet and Greet scheduled to open fall 2013 - check the first post for the current timeline, photos, and an overview of the hall.

That is awesome to hear and it makes sense since we are guests in his castle . Too bad that the next time we will be in WDW won't be until 2014.
