looking at some of the pictures looks like a very DLP fantasyland fairytale look which should be fab. I never warmed to Fantasyland at MK so I think this is going to be a massive improvement.

It does looks like they will be keeping the old rides too?

Ooh looks like they're moving Voyage of the Little Mermaid over from DHS, wonder what will replace it there...?
It all looks really exciting! I like the idea of 2 Dumbos (should ease the queues a bit!) and areas for each princess

do little boys not like meeting princesses?

Maybe they have plans in the studios with the Marvel characters, though I would prefer Pixar characters.

Apparently there are plans to have some of the Disney villains there as well.

Quote:
Chris Beatty, a senior concept designer with Walt Disney Imagineering, said a goal is to make the company's iconic princesses appealing to a wider demographic. For example, some villains from the princesses' movies will also be incorporated to help the area appeal to boys.

I'm not a huge fan of Fantasyland, but it does look great and I'm pleased that Star Tours is being updated too

I'll pop this over on the trip planning forums

I interpreted "Mickey and Minnie will find new homes near the entrance to the park" as meaning they would make appearances there, rather than having bespoke houses built. I can't see where they would do that. Even if there was space, it wouldn't fit the theming in that area.

Yeah, but it sounds like an afterthought. The merchandising power of Disney Princesses and Disney Fairies is clearly huge and I can see why that alone would be a strong factor in the decision-making process. Why not devote the new Fantasyland to those and Disney Villains in equal measure, though? They certainly fit the fantasy theme.

Fantastic and just in time for when we take DD for the first time - she will be 5 and hopefully will love the fairies/princesses... great news and great news that Star Tours will be updated by then too.

Hope Star Tours isn't closed for refurbishment in April 2010! My DBF is a HUGE Star Wars fan, and this ride was a big factor in him agreeing to go!
