New Fantasyland makes the map:

Disney Parks Blog: Let the Magic Begin! New Fantasyland Preview Period Begins Today at Magic Kingdom Park

In other news - the map still shows a Character Greeting in Caribbean Plaza - which was discontinued in Oct. Oops!

Would have to be today or yesterday. Our map from Saturday didn't have it either.

What did you think? Did it live up to the hype for you?

My family loved it. (I don't know if that meets the definition of living up to the hype though, especially around here.) It's a great addition, but it is somewhat tempered by the 7DMT construction going on along its entire length. Once that's done it will be fantastic, IMHO.

Loooked at the customized maps you can order online if you are signed up at Disney.go..... The new Fantasyland has not appeared on them yet. Probably after December 6.

The atmosphere was amazing! I would eat there again, but the price was a little hefty.
Do you feel that way compared to other places to eat in Disney? Were the portions small or just not good enough? Just asking b/c based on the menu prices seen the prices seem more than fair (taking into account this is in a theme park and not a normal restaurant)

Is that map a full size map? If not, could you send one to me? I'll pm you my email address if it's possible. Thanks!

The reports I saw say he is there but that you don't go meet him for a photo until after you eat. You present your receipt to get in line. The best news? He was in his dress-up suit. Now, if I could just talk them into bringing Belle by in her red gown until Christmas.......

I ate there for dinner last night - we had one person who called the day it opened make a 12 person reservation and then yesterday morning starting figuring out who worked and who could come. We ended up making magic for a group of 5 people we ran into to fill our reservation to the max so it was a lot of fun. I think it is insanely priced for what you get, but the food was very good. Half our party got wine which was just weird to see and our server said there was no limit to how many glasses you could have. Service was very slow it took a total of 3 hours from sitting down to getting the check - I think they took too many people or need more servers.

Anyway, Beast walks through the whole place once an hour (they make a big announcement about the host coming and everyone applauds) and the rest of the time he is in the area where you pay for quick service lunch for photos. No autographs, a PhotoPass photographer was there and group shots only, no getting separate shots with each member of the party. We were never asked for a receipt to enter the line but there wouldn't really be a way to sneak in since you can't enter the castle unless your server is escorting you in. Beast is awesome btw: he was dancing and swaying to the music the whole time we were waiting in line and he made sure to hug everyone. (He can't really do much more interaction than that with how he's built.)

Great info, this is the first first-person report I've seen.

Rode The Little Mermaid today....cm said it was the second day open, reminds me of Nemo although it does have a lot more animatronics (think that's what you call them).
