so are all the details expected to be complete for the opening in Nov/Dec.? Basically, will FL be entirely complete except for the Fairytale Hall and the Mine Train? The enchanted forest and all the details, etc.?

So with the opening slated for Nov. 19th, does that mean it will be officially open to all guests visiting the park?? I know the official opening is in Dec. We have ADR's for BOG on Thanksgiving.

I infer the following regarding these openings of the FLE:

Annual Passholders and DVC Member Previews - Early November 2012
General Public Previews - November 19, 2012
General Public Opening - December 6, 2012


Also, keep in mind "previews" are like soft openings, so the attractions will likely be open but may operate on-and-off throughout the day.

Does anyone think that they will be building one of the new Starbucks in to the new Fantasyland? I know their plan is to get a Starbucks into every major Disney park in the US so it makes sense to do this now all at once when the construction is going on.

Any thoughts?

Great video of the new Enchanted Tales with Belle in New Fantasyland. It is the whole experience so if you want to be surprised DON'T watch. ;-)

There has been speculation in some of the Starbucks threads that it will be in Fantasyland somewhere but there hasn't been any real information.

I just watched it, I have to say I have mixed feelings

It does seem like an awesome experience and I love the Enchanted door, Maurice's house, Lumiere, and the Wardrobe, but I am not sure I love the character experience. It just seems "too much". It seems like chaos, there is tooo many people who will not want to get involved as you saw in the video.

Also, what happens if there is not enough people for the parts? I am sure in the beginning there will be but what about over time? How can they change that storyline to accomodate parts? Do the workers make up for the parts? I feel like the library should have been a more interactive experience, as in come characters in the library hidden as animatronics that are hidden but come out at their part.

I don't know, I just feel like there is too many parts to act out in this.

I agree with Rachel above. Seems like a great concept, lots of very neat things. But, the character part seemed convoluted. The photo part looked terribly rushed.

Really not sure how I feel about it, I was expecting something along the lines of Olivanders at WWoHP, the AA's are awesome and the actual idea of it is amazing but the execution might not work. It's very "kiddy" instead of aiming to appeal to everyone and I definitely want to experience it but I sure ain't getting involved in the story telling stuff with a bunch of people's kids. A little disappointed at this point but I'll hold my judgment for when I see it in person!

:/ Same here... but I explained it to my 15 yo ds (who was seen skipping around the MK last week LOL) and he's excited about it and the opportunity to get everyone to ham up their roles.

Personally - I was hoping for a little extra magic at the end verses the "Pose for the photopass photographer" bit.

I'll have to watch the entire video to see for myself. But the old Belle's Storytime had kids playing parts and there never seemed to be a problem getting enough willing volunteers.

I think they could easily cut out the suits of armor, laughing portraits, salt and pepper - I agree that part seemed like reaching. Overall it looks awsome, though. I do hope there is more than one library, or else the lines could be crazy. Anyone know - what was the part at the end where Belle said "this is a gift to remember this"?
