I will say that the little show Tiana did at DL was wonderful. I was still sad we missed the riverboat jubilee though. When you travel once a year to WDW, it can be so frustrating to see things come and go. I was pleasantly surprised that Naveen lasted until December for us though. He was a lot of fun!

Oh I know! it's so frustrating! Star Tours closed two days before I came down in september.
That Tiana show was good though. Glad to hear you had a good experience with Naveen. He's a personal favourite

But, and here's where I see the link: indoor and outdoor sections (more outdoor than CC, which I think is great), combination of coaster and dark ride elements, music. So if you scale back the intensity level of CC you have what I expect the mine coaster to be. An awesome opportunity to really show off what makes imagineering so great, combining story and (moderate) excitement.
That's what I was thinking, though I hope it's not as intense because Crush's coaster seems pretty intense.

I'm looking at satellite maps and the updated sketch, and I just don't see how the new Dumbo is going to fit without rerouting the Speedway. I suppose there is a nook where the roadway bends that the ride could be fit into, but it seems like a tight squeeze and I'm not quite sure what that will do for sight lines.

Naveen was a lot of fun, very interactive. It was really cold when we were there, and he decided he needed to try out my daughter's fur muff!

We had the opportunity to meet Naveen and Tiana in July 2010, and found that they were both some of the most charming face characters we've run into.

Lol that's great!
More often than not, when i would go and see them, I would sometimes ask Tiana to step aside for pictures with Naveen

Well, I couldn't figure out which MICE they were talking about, either. So, don't feel bad.

Sleeping Beauty gets plenty of love out here on the west coast. From my observations, Sleeping Beauty gets more love out here because her castle is out here. And the castle walkthrough is one of Disneyland's hidden gems.

As for the Fantasyland expansion, I like it. I'm actually going to have to spend time in Fantasyland on my next WDW visit for more than just Mickey's PhilharMagic and Winnie the Pooh. I've never been very impressed with the MK's Fantasyland because it does not have anywhere near the detail of Disneyland. I hope that the expansion changes that.

I expect the Mine Ride will be a lot more to the 'dark ride' side of things than 'coaster'. Crush's Coaster is only a little more intense than Big Thunder Mountain, I thought. The rotation adds to the effect, but the coaster itself isn't all too scary or quick. Here's a nice 'making of' type video from the official Disneyland Paris youtube channel.

We had put off our next trip until Fall of 2012 since that's when the original completion date was to be. Now with completion being sometime in 2013, I can't imagine putting off a trip for that long. Not sure what to do.

I also really loved the castle walkthrough (although we almost couldn't find it since none of the CM's around there knew what on earth we were trying to find!)

But do they do something else for Sleeping Beauty out there? I always though they should do more, just as they should do more for Cindy on the east coast.

The plan has always been to do Fantasyland in 2 phases, the first to be done in Fall 2012. I don't think that has changed at all. It was Phase 2 that was always supposed to be done in 2013, and I think that's still the plan for that as well.

"Next trip" implies that you see this as a series of trips, including "the one after next". Given that, I think the decision is easy: Go now, and simply take in more of the other parts of the parks, the parts that perhaps don't get as much attention from your family when Fantasyland is more of the focus.

As I understood the original plan, the Pixie Hollow part was what wasn't going to be done until 2013, which was fine, we didn't care about seeing the fairies. But the new plan makes no mention of Pixie Hollow. I've heard that Pixie Hollow is no more.

Pixie Hollow was part of phase 2. Now the Mine Coaster is part of Phase 2. I don't know about the Barnstormer retheming or Dumbo, but I assumed all along those were phase 2 as well.

I think everything they ever had any intention of finishing in 2012 is behind the great wall of Fantasyland and currently under construction.
