Very cool! Must have gone up in the last couple days? We were there until Sunday and don't remember seeing this, but will be there again tonight for the Christmas Party and will try to take some photos.

The tower looks lovely!

It *is* a little baffling to me that they are using all of this really beautiful themeing JUST for a restroom. I mean, don't get me wrong, I think it will be a really nice addition to the scenery in Fantasyland. But I guess what strikes me is that it is specifically attached to a movie...even thought it's, you know, a bathroom. I don't think it would have struck me as odd if the tower weren't included. But the tower makes it feel like it should be an attraction.

Weren't there rumors that part of this new structure would include a new meet and greet location for Rapunzel? I don't know if Disney every made any official announcements about this.

So far, rumors only. I sense those rumors are dying, but who knows?

I thought I read that one of the Imagineers said in a recent online chat there would definitely *not* be an M&G in this area. Then again, BOG was *not* going to be a character meal, and the Beast is meeting there (though not in traditional make-the-rounds character meal fashion).

That must be why I think they're dying--I read the same thing.

Makes sense. It does seem a bit off to have a princess meet and greet next to the bathrooms with the occasional toilet flushes and high pitch hand dryer noises coming through the walls

I can also anticipate the gradual onset of disappointment on my DD's face when she first sees the building believing it's a new Rapunzel attraction or meet and greet, then realizes they're just restrooms!

You are correct...

Jenn Fickley-Baker: We've also received several questions about construction going on elsewhere in Fantasyland, in the area where the old Skyway attraction was. What can you tell us about this area?

Chris Beatty: Not only have we looked at adding new guests experiences to the New Fantasyland, but we looked at opportunities to enhance guest comfort. Many of you are curious to know will there be a character meet-and-greet in this area, but at this moment there are no plans.

I heard they were building a new ride or something. As long as SWSA is still there though, I'm good.
