Yes, the lines for the Enchanted Storytime with Belle were crazy!!!!!!! But then it is a cute little show with lots of audience participation.
We went to see it during the "soft" opening last August and it was fun.

The walkway from the CR and BLT to the MK are one of the biggest draws for me. Nothing better than a short walk and being "home".

Jen, we walked by twice without seeing it first. I have a habit of taking photo of signs and such and had such a laugh when I read it.

Michelle, it is a cute show, with a lot of audience interaction. We were so lucky to get in last August, when they did "trial runs". The line moves very slowly as there is an actual little show at the end of it.

We have yet to try the pork shank. We were FAR too full after lunch, but it is on my list for the summer.
no LeFue's brew for me - I don't like apple flavoured drinks.

I am sorry the lines were so icky. I know we didn't go nearly as many rides last trip, just cause lines were so long.

Love the pics of the new fantasyland. The mine ride looks to really be coming along! I can't wait!!!
Ann, walking out of your room and looking over at the MK was just awesome.
Lines are always long in February, so we "kind of" expected it. But I did not expect them to be that long.

I cannot wait for the mine train ride. It looks like so much fun.

BTW Ann, any news on your DVC offer?

Rosie, the lines for that "show" are always longer than I would like, but 60 minutes is FAR too long to wait for me.

Kathy, if you get the chance to see it, it is really cute, but not cute enough for a 60 minute wait for us two adults.

All caught up. Loved the pics.
The fireworks cruise was really awesome. And sharing that experience with friends was the best of it.
Yes, that Belle line gets really long fast. But it is a nice little show. We got to see it when they invited park guests to experience it last August. We only waited about 10 minutes then and really enjoyed it.

Why is it just so easy to fall behind and so hard catching up. Been there, done that just recently.

Half term vacation 2013, Feb 16 - Feb 24

Day 7, February 22




Who needs plans, we go with the flow! - part 2

Next stop was the Little Mermaid ride





and to our huge surprise it only had a 15 minute wait. Well, we could do that, so we got in line









and walked through most of the line. There was a bit of hold up right before the line, but it was mostly a walk on. Once in our clam mobiles we had time to really look around and enjoy the new ride. Tom was able to even take a few photos.





























We both still thought that Ariel looked a bit funny in some of the scenes but so be it. Once we got off the ride







we watched the construction workers who worked on the Mine train ride for a bit,



before we wanted to head back to the castle. We walked past the Be Our Guest restaurant and were amazed that there was already a long line for a still closed restaurant.

To be continued ...........

Hi Karin

I must admit I skipped past some of your FL pictures as I am trying not to see too much before we visit in December but I managed to ascertain that you and Tom are having a fun day!

You are going to love the new expansion, Linda. They did a really good job on it.
Just try to get to the Storytime with Belle REAL early, as the line can get pretty long. The Little Mermaid ride is cute.

It's a pretty cute ride. We were lucky enough to get on it twice in three days with NO line at all.
Another WDW visit on the horizon for you? Maybe with a cruise thrown in as well?

The 22nd was such a beautiful day. Love the LM ride...and the fact that the ride doesn't have to stop to load is AWESOME! I think it helps to keep the line moving and not build as much.

I was just looking at my LM pictures tonight and I see that we got so many of the same pics. I loved the ride and I can't wait to see it again in June!

So sorry to hear what happened to your TR and your decision, not to do any more ..... maybe after some time you might reconsider?
You and your girls will sure love to ride the LM ride! Such a cute ride.

I am so happy it will come through for you!

It was an awesome day (even though we didn't run into you again). The LM ride is really nice and I SO loved the fact that it was practically a walk on.

Tell me about seeing the same photos over and over again. But it is so cute, how can you NOT take pics.

Mary Ellen, you are so close to going back again.
