Thanks for mentioning that they don't allow strollers. I wonder if they are allowing wheelchairs? We're renting one for my mom since she can't walk long distances, but want to verify whether we'll need to ditch that too if we're lucky enough to be able to enter.

Nice review!! We were there yesterday. Too bad you missed storytime with Belle - I think that was my favorite!! The ride is great too. And Ariel's meet was pretty awesome as well! I need to get pics up, just heading home today!

Love these. The queue is so pretty. We were at Disneyland a few times over the past two years because my husband had to go to CA for work. Journey Under the Sea is at DCA. Interior looks the same, but the queuing area isn't nearly as pretty. It is all enclosed. This is such a beautiful attraction. We just missed the opening this year. Can't wait to get back.
